John Heller drove in two runs in the ninth inning to tie the game and Randy Milligan drove in the winning run in the 10th to lift the Lynchburg Mets to a win over the Alexandria Dukes, 6-5, last night at Four Mile Run Park.
Darryl Denby led off the ninth for Lynchburg with a walk and moved to second on Lenny Dykstra's one-out infield hit. Mark Carreon's single loaded the bases and Heller then singled in two runs to tie the score at 5. Milligan's single up the middle with two outs in the 10th scored Scott Redfield, who led off with a walk and went to second on a ground out, with the winning run.
The Dukes (14-20) broke a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the seventh with homers by Nelson de la Rosa and Lorenzo Bundy. De la Rosa'a home run came after Sam Khalifa singled.
Lynchburg (21-14) closed the gap in the eighth when a sacrifice fly by Fermin Ubri scored Heller, who led off with a double and went to third on a single.
Joe Graves (5-3) got the win, allowing one hit and striking out four batters in 3 1/3 innings.
