Big day for Dean goes to the 'Dogs

May 03, 2000

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Aaron Dean was unhittable for six innings. The seventh was a different story.

Charleston scored seven runs in the seventh on a combination of hits and Hagerstown defensive miscues Wednesday to lead the RiverDogs to a 7-3 win over the Suns in a morning matinee.

Dean (3-1) retired the first 16 batters he faced before Brian Martin singled with one out in the sixth. Then Dean retired the next two for a run of 18 outs in 19 batters with a 2-0 lead.

The seventh inning led to seven hits, two throwing errors and two other questionable throws to knock Dean out of the box and into the first loss of his professional career.


The Suns, who lost a two-game winning streak, only managed four hits in the game.

Hagerstown (13-12) took a 1-0 lead in the first when Doug Roper walked, took third on Reed Johnson's single to left center and scored when Josh Holliday grounded out while bunting.
