Crocs top Suns in 10th

May 11, 1999

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - On most other nights, Hagerstown's Matt Logan would have been the hero.

After all, the Suns first baseman went 4-for-4 with four RBIs. He had three singles, then in the ninth inning with the Suns trailing by two and down to their last out, Logan ripped a two-run home run to tie the game.

Alas, Cape Fear scored in the 10th to take an 8-7 victory over the Suns and cut their lead in the South Atlantic League's Northern Division to two games.

Hagerstown is 20-12, and the Crocs are 17-13.

The Suns have two more games against Cape Fear before heading to Macon for four games against the Braves. They're off Monday, then return home next Tuesday for four games against Savannah.

The Suns seemed doomed until Logan unloaded homer No. 6 of the season against Kyle Sheldon in the ninth.

But the Crocs fought back in the 10th. Aljereau Benjamin hit an infield single off the second base bag, stole second and scored the winning run on Scott Hodges' single to center.

Sheldon (1-0) got the win. Suns reliever Jarrod Kingrey got out of a jam in the ninth but gave up the winning run.
