Suns' streak ends at six

May 02, 1999

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The Hagerstown Suns threw - and booted - away a chance to extend their winning streak to seven Sunday.

The Suns committed four errors and lost the the Charleston Alley Cats, 9-4.

Hagerstown jumped ahead on the first pitch when Jorge Nunez homered off Jeremy Jackson. Jay Gibbons added an RBI single to give the Suns a 2-0 lead after a half inning.

But Hagerstown starter and loser Scott Cassiday (2-2) hit a batter and walked two to load the bases in the first. Catcher Ryan Bundy threw the ball away twice - once on a pick-off attempt and once on a steal - and Juan Nieves bobbled a ball, helping the Alley Cats to a 3-2 lead.

The Suns tied it 3-3 in the fifth, but Charleston scored four runs in the bottom of the inning for a 7-3 lead.
