Suns get Moore power in victory over Legends

July 29, 2009

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Tyler Moore had two home runs and four RBIs to lead the Hagerstown Suns to a 6-2 victory over the Lexington Legends on Tuesday night.

Michael Guerrero had three of Hagerstown's 10 hits, including a solo homer in the top of the first inning to give the Suns a 1-0 lead.

After Lexington scored two in the second, the Suns tied the game at 2-2 in the fourth on Moore's first home run of the night -- a solo shot to left.

Hagerstown took a 3-2 lead in the seventh against Legends starter David Duncan (1-2). Charlie Fermaint singled to center and advanced to second on an error on the play. After Travis Reagan singled to put runners on the corners, Nick Arata drove in Fermaint with a sacrifice fly to center.

The Suns added three insurance runs in the eighth on three straight hits against reliever Arcenio Leon. Steve Lombardozzi and Guerrero each singled, and Moore hit a three-run homer to left.

Hagerstown starter Marcos Frias (7-3) pitched six solid innings for the win. He allowed two runs, six hits and a walk while striking out six. Ricardo Pecina pitched the final three innings for his first save of the year.

The Legends, who rallied from behind in the ninth inning to win each of the previous two games against the Suns this series, made things interesting again in the ninth.

Lexington loaded the bases with two outs, but Federico Hernandez popped out to catcher Reagan in foul territory to end the game.
