Legends batter Suns, 15-1



LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Hagerstown Suns helped the new Lexington addition to the South Atlantic League live up to its nickname on Monday.

The Legends made their home debut and opened their new Applebee Stadium before 8,037 fans with a rousing 15-1 shellacking of Hagerstown, using four home runs and four Suns errors to blow the game open.

Lexington scored runs in six of the first seven innings, roughing up starter John Thomas. Thomas (0-1), who was making his professional debut after being drafted in the 1999, left in the third inning, trailing, 8-0.

Third baseman Angel Chavez committed three of the Suns four errors, two of them prolonging Lexington rallies.

Hagerstown (2-3) averted the shutout with two outs in the ninth when Bryan Carter grounded a Santiago Ramirez pitch under the glove of Tommy Whiteman to score Bryan Gann.

Ramon German hit two homers and drove in four runs for Lexington (4-1), which is riding a four-game win streak. Felix Escalona and Jesse Joyce also homered for the Legends.

Gann's ninth-inning single extended his hitting streak to four games.

The Legends are managed by former Hagerstown Suns manager J.J. Cannon.
