Shorebirds stop Suns' streak at 6



SALISBURY, Md. - Doug Gredvig hit a three-run home run to cap a six-run second inning Thursday to lift the Delmarva Shorebirds to a 7-4 victory over Hagerstown, ending the Suns' six game-winning streak.

Suns starter Travis Hubbel (7-5) suffered through control problems through his 1 2/3 inning stint, which led to all seven runs. Hagerstown's bullpen kept the Suns in position to come back, holding Delmarva to no runs on two hits over the final 6 1/3 innings.

The loss was Hagerstown's second in 11 games and slowed the Suns surge through the Northern Division standings. Hagerstown is in second place (Piedmont is in first place) by percentage points at 10-9, with Delmarva and Hickory at 11-10.

Delmarva took a 7-0 lead before Hagerstown began chipping away against Shorebirds' starter Jancy Andrade (3-5), beginning with a run in the third on Jaime Goudie's RBI single.

The Suns added a run in the fifth on Goudie's grounder and picked up two in the eighth on RBI singles by Josh Holliday and Robert Cosby. Hagerstown had the tying run at the plate with two outs in the eighth in the form of Alex Rios, but he struck out.
