Suns throw away win streak

September 04, 2005

To the Hagerstown Suns, defense is a relative term.

The Suns committed five errors, which produced six unearned runs, to help Lexington take a 9-2 victory on Saturday, ending Hagerstown's four-game winning streak.

Lexington got on the board with the help of an errant pickoff throw by outfielder Kyle Brown. It opened the door for a two-run double by Justn Towles and an RBI single by Bryan Triplett.

The Suns scored both of their runs to get within 3-2 before Lexington blew the game open with four runs in the sixth with the help of more Suns miscues.


Drew Sutton led off by reaching on a Matt Fisher error and scored on Justin Humphries' double. Starter Orlando Rengel was lifted for Joe Wiliams, who committed an error to let the second run score en route to a 7-2 lead.

Jim Burt's throwing error opened the door for Lexington's two runs in the eighth.

The Suns got on the board with single runs in the fourth and fifth innings.

Grant Psomas led off the fourth with a double and scored on Jesus Flores' single and Brandon Braganier's throwing error. Fisher reached on a Triplett throwing error and scored on Ambiorix Concepcion's sacrifice fly.

Ronnie Martinez pitched seven innings for the win for Lexington, allowing two unearned runs on five hits.
