August 31, 2010

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The Hagerstown Suns were put down quickly, but there was nothing painless about it.

Lexington scored nine runs in the first inning, chasing starter Paul Demny with only one out, and held Hagerstown to four hits on Monday in a 14-1 victory.

Kody Hinze inflicted the most damage with a three-run home run. Demny (6-9) lasted eight batters, issuing three walks and hitting a batter before being lifted for Wanel Vasquez.

Lexington sent 14 hitters to the plate in the first, scoring the nine runs on six hits. Demny was charged with seven runs in his one-third of an inning work.

Hagerstown (63-70) scored its only run in the third off Lexington starter Jose Cisnero (7-6) when Eury Perez singled and stole his 58th base to get to second. After a double play advanced him to third, Perez scored on a wild pitch.

Lexington (66-66) added three runs in the fifth and single runs in the seventh and eighth innings to finish the rout. The Legends had only 10 hits, but were aided by eight walks and four batters hit by pitches.

Hagerstown used five pitchers in the game, including first baseman Brett Newsome, who worked the eighth inning.
