FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - All season, the Cape Fear Crocs have been pitching like major-leaguers against the Hagerstown Suns.
Now the Suns actually have to face one.
Matt Blank continued the Crocs' curse over the Suns Wednesday night, allowing just two hits in eight innings as Cape Fear defeated Hagerstown, 1-0.

Then, Hagerstown learned it will be facing normal Colorado Rockies starter John Thomson tonight in Asheville against the Tourists.
Thomson is on a rehabilitation assignment with the team's Class A affiliate. He has been on the disabled list since June 15 with a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand.
He will pitch the first two innings against the Suns before giving way to Travis Thompson (2-6, 4.11) for the Tourists. If all goes well, Thomson (5-6 for the Rockies) will start against the Astros in Houston Tuesday night.
