Suns cry 'uncle'
By DAN SPEARS / Staff Writer
For the second straight night, the Hagerstown Suns rallied from a big deficit to make it a game with the Delmarva Shorebirds.
For the second straight night, the Shorebirds responded by pounding the Suns into submission.
Delmarva set a club record with seven doubles and used a seven-run seventh inning to pull away for a 14-9 victory over Hagerstown Tuesday night at Municipal Stadium.
"You don't like it, but it happened again," Suns manager Rolando Pino said. "We've got to hold the momentum. That kills you when you don't; you get it, and then they get it right back."
The Suns (14-23, 48-59) were down 6-0 and being one-hit by Delmarva starter Eric Bedard through 5 1/2 innings - and it could have been worse. Suns starter Cameron Reimers, despite allowing the six runs, had also wriggled his way out of three jams unscathed before a three-run homer with two outs in the fifth made it 4-0. Two more runs in the sixth - thanks to miscommunication on a potential inning-ending double play - finished Reimers and made it 6-0.
