Bottom of the frame, Billy Morris blasts a shot to deep centerfield, Jason Mansell trades places with him and scores from second. The Legends tie the game up at one a piece.
On the very next pitch, Matt Sell slips one down the third base line to score Morris. Lancaster leads 2-1.
Top of the third, Kyle Finn sneaks one up the middle, two Spartans round the bases and come home to give Will North the 3-2 lead.
