Errors pave way for Suns

May 04, 2010

ROME, Ga. -- Steven Souza hit an RBI double and Rome shortstop Mycal Jones lent a hand with two errors to highlight a three-run sixth inning on Monday to lift the Hagerstown Suns to a 6-5 victory.

With two outs, Sean Nicol singled to short that Jones threw away to allow Francisco Soriano to score. Souza scored after his double scored Nicol when Jones booted a grounder by Destin Hood for what proved to be the winning run.

Suns starter Jack McGeary (2-0) got the win, allowing three runs, one earned, in five innings of work.

The Suns' rally broke a 3-3 tie. Hagerstown (14-10) scored once in the fourth and twice in the fifth to take leads of 1-0 and 3-2.

Jones gave the Suns their first run with an RBI single. Hagerstown got its two runs in the fifth on a run-scoring grounder by Souza and a Dan Lyons single.
