3-run homer leads way to 5-4 victory

MACON, Ga. - Josh Holliday's three-run homer in the third inning was the decisive blow Sunday as the Hagerstown Suns defeated the Macon Braves 5-4 in the South Atlantic League.

Reed Johnson added a solo shot as Hagerstown (2-2) led 4-0 after the third and split its four-game series against the Braves (2-2).

Macon scored three runs in the bottom of the third to close to 4-3, but never took the lead against the Suns. Both teams scored once in the seventh.
