Suns fall in 10 innings

June 10, 2000

SALISBURY, Md. - Mamon Tucker drove in two runs, including the game-winner with two outs in the 10th inning Friday, to lead the Delmarva Shorebirds to a 2-1 victory over the Hagerstown Suns.

The loss dropped the Suns (29-33) to four games below .500, their lowest point this season. Hagerstown has lost four of its last five games and finished the seven-game, home-and-home series with Delmarva with a 2-5 record.

Hagerstown took a 1-0 lead in the fourth against Delmarva starter Mike Paradis as Josh Holliday walked and scored on Ryan Bundy's double.

Suns starter Cameron Reimers controlled the Shorebirds for six innings, allowing one hit, until he lost support of Hagerstown's defense once again.


The seventh inning started with Mike Riordon grounding to third baseman Robert Cosby, who threw the ball away for his fifth error in four games. After Keith Reed singled to move Riordon to third, Tucker hit a slow roller to third that Cosby tried to barehand and throw to the plate, but dropped for an RBI single to tie the game.

Reimers left the game allowing just three hits and an unearned run.

Hagerstown failed to score in the top of the 10th, opening the door for Delmarva against reliever Rob Hamann, Hagerstown's fourth pitcher of the night.

With two outs, Eddie Rogers walked and took third on a hit-and-run single to right by Riordan. After Reed was walked to load the bases, Tucker singled to right center field to end the game.

Hagerstown begins a four-game series against Augusta at Municipal Stadium beginning tonight.
