Suns' streaks screech to halt

August 19, 1999

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Ed Kofler turned the tables on Hagerstown pitching, holding the Suns to two singles Wednesday to lead the Charleston RiverDogs to an 8-1 victory over the Suns.

Kofler's complete-game, 10-strikeout performance matched the 5-0 shutout thrown by Hagerstown's Pat Lynch Tuesday. By scoring in the second inning, the RiverDogs ended the string of 29 consecutive scoreless innings by Hagerstown pitching.

Taylor Smith (7-8) got knicked for single runs in the second, third and fourth innings. Jarrod Kingrey came on in the eighth and allowed five runs (four earned) in less than an inning.

The Suns (74-48, 26-25) got their only run in the fifth when Tyler Thompson reached on an errant throw by Charleston's Pat LaForest and took second on Joe Dusan's single - the Suns' first hit of the game. Thompson scored on a passed ball to cut the deficit to 3-1.
