Legends wrap up road trip with 8-2 loss

A road trip filled with close games ended in a rout.

The Hagerstown Suns collected 13 hits and six walks to beat the Lexington Legends 8-2 on Sunday night in the finale of a three-game series and a seven-game road swing.

Each of the first six games was decided by one run. This one was effectively over by the sixth inning, when the Suns scored four runs on four hits.

Hagerstown scored the go-ahead run one inning earlier after three consecutive walks by Legends starter Ruben Alaniz.
