Lexington, KY (May 27, 2024) – The Hagerstown Flying Boxcars won three of four against the Lexington Legends and carried out a four-game winning streak – the longest in Boxcars history to this point. 


The Boxcars streak began when they picked up a 9-5 win on the final game of a three-game road trip to Charleston. After closing out the series with a win, the Boxcars headed to Lexington, where they won the series handily, 3-1.  


Several players had standout appearances, including the resurgence of outfielder Welington Dotel. Dotel batted 7 for 18 (.389) with 1 HR and 2 RBI. Christian Sepulveda also had a big road trip, batting 6 of 16 (.375) with 2 HR and 4 RBI. He capped off the display with 4 stolen bases. Mike Kickham notably threw 12 strikeouts vs. Lexington, in 5.0 innings of work – just two SO shy of the third most strikeouts in a single game in ALPB history. The team batted in 33 runs over the stretch on 43 hits, with 5 home runs and a .303 team average. While the bats started to heat up, so did the bullpen. Bullpen pitchers went 18 innings against Lexington, striking out 15 and only allowing 3 earned runs in the process. The Boxcars will look to bring the road success home, when they take on their in-state opponents the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. 


The Boxcars will be back in action on Tuesday evening (5/28) at 6:30 PM when they meet Southern Maryland for the first time.
