FREDERICK, MD., JUNE 13 -- The Frederick Keys, before a near sellout of 5,998 at Harry Grove Stadium, got six RBI by designated hitter Mike Lehman and a four-for-four game from Tyrone Kingwood for an easy 9-4 victory tonight over the Durham Bulls.
Zachary Kerr pitched a complete game for his Carolina League-leading 10th win. Lee Johnson (3-3) lost.
The Keys trailed, 3-1, in the fourth when Lehman, hitting .258 before the game, came up with the bases full and bounced a single over third baseman Ken Herring, scoring Mike Richardson and Ken Shamburg. Kingwood -- who homered later -- scored to give the Keys a 4-3 lead when left fielder Popeye Cole's throw eluded catcher David Brust.
Lehman came through with the bases loaded again in the fifth, knocking in all three runners with a double off the top of the wall in left.
"I was just trying to see the ball and get the bat on it," he said of his near grand slam. "The flag wasn't blowing my way so I was lucky it went as far as it did."
The Keys started the fifth in unusual fashion. Roy Gilbert flied out but was awarded first base on catcher's interference. Gilbert advanced on a wild pitch before Ricky Gutierrez was hit in the head by a pitch. After an out, Ken Shamburg and Kingwood singled, chasing Johnson.
Pat Tilmon struck out Tim Holland, then Lehman stroked his double.
Spirits 10, Cannons 3: Prince William dropped its second consecutive game in Winston-Salem.
The Spirits, who have the best home record in the league (24-6) got 15 hits against four pitchers. Jim Bullinger (7-4) went the distance to win. Cullen Hartzog (2-4), affected by tendinitis in his shoulder, lost.
