Variety is the spice to win for the Suns

May 02, 2004

Nate Schierholtz had four hits and Lexington committed six errors as the Hagerstown Suns showed versatility in scoring in six of nine innings in an 8-7 victory over the Legends on Saturday.

The Suns used four doubles - by Jesse Schmidt, Travis Ishikawa, Dayton Buller and Jon Coutlangus - to produce a four-run rally in the second inning for a 4-1 lead.

Schierholtz homered in the third, following a two-run shot by Justin Humphries in the top of the inning, to move the Suns to a 5-3 lead.

Jason Columbus hit an RBI double in the fifth to move to a 6-3 lead and used a circus of errors by Lexington in the sixth to get to 7-3. Coutlangus scored from first base when he beat a pickoff throw for a stolen base, which led to throwing errors by first baseman Scott Robinson and left fielder Elvin Alcantara.
