Suns can't start streak



HICKORY, N.C. - Hickory didn't have get hits to inflict the most damage on the Hagerstown Suns.

The Crawdads spun five walks, three hit batsmen, four stolen bases, three sacrifice flies and two Hagerstown errors into five runs Saturday to lead Hickory to 6-3 win over the Suns.

Hagerstown starter Felix Diaz (0-1) suffered major control problems in the second and third innings, hitting all three batters and enduring two of the sacrifice flies to give Hickory (2-1) a 5-0 lead.

The Suns (1-2) got a run in the fifth off starter Mike Johnston as Trey Lunsford doubled and scored when Tomas Garrido's single was misplayed in the outfield. Hickory countered with a run in the bottom of the inning on a Ray Navarrete sacrifice fly.

Hagerstown added a run in the seventh on Jason Ellison's RBI single and another in the eighth on Mark Walker's hit to cut the deficit to 6-3. The Suns had the tying run at the plate, but pinch hitter Bruce Alexander struck out looking with runners on second and third.
