Suns take first loss

April 11, 2004

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Lexington Legends President Alan Stein can take his seat again.

Stein will be back in the Applebee's Stadium stands today after the Legends used a six-run second inning Saturday to hang an 8-2 loss on Hagerstown, ending the Suns' season-opening two-game win streak.

Stein guaranteed Lexington would win its home opener on Thursday or he would become the Legends' batboy until the team won. Hagerstown (2-1) won the first two games, forcing Stein into duty on Friday and Saturday.

Lexington ended Stein's employment by roughing up Hagerstown starter Ryan Sadowski (0-1) for seven runs on five hits and two walks in 1 2/3 innings Saturday.

Jason Anderson, who grew up an hour from Lexington, hit a solo home run to give the Legends a 1-0 lead in the first. Chad Prosser drove in four runs, three of them coming on a bases-loaded double in the second, to pace the Legends (1-2).

Ozzie Fernando had an RBI single and Sal Torres added a two-run double in the second.

The Suns got a run back off Lexington starter Derrick Grigsby when A.J. LaBarbera drew a two-out bases-loaded walk for the RBI.

The Suns got their other run in the ninth when Jon Coutlangus walked and scored on Nate Schierholtz's double.
