Friday - Suns' Bonser bows out in third



KANNAPOLIS, N.C. - Kannapolis got to Hagerstown Suns starter Boof Bonser early, knocking him out with four runs in the first three innings on Friday, to race to a 5-2 victory.

The win allowed the Intimidators to salvage a split with Hagerstown (12-10).

Bonser entered the game at 2-0 with a 0.50 ERA but left after allowing four runs in 2 2/3 innings.

Kannapolis took a 1-0 lead in the first when Bonser plated Mike Spidale with a wild pitch.

The Suns tied the game in the second when Derek Bell ripped a leadoff triple off Intimadators starter Kris McWhirter and scored on Bryan Carter's double.

Kannapolis countered in the bottom of the inning when Derek Wigginton tripled and attempted to score on Nilson Teilon's suicide squeeze attempt. But Bonser's pitch sailed to the backstop, allowing Wigginton to steal home.

Jason Ellison tied the game again in the third when he doubled and stole third and scored when catcher Wally Rosa's throw sailed into left field.

Kannapolis chased Bonser in the fourth. Spindale singled and scored on Casey Rogowski's RBI double. Darren Ciraco followed with another double for the 4-2 lead to chase Bonser.

Kannapolis added an insurance run in the sixth against Julio Pavon when Wally Rosa was hit by a pitch and eventually scored on Spindale's infield single to third that Bell threw past first baseman Deivi Santos for an error.
