SALISBURY, Md. - While Hagerstown waited until the sixth inning Saturday to get started, the Suns jumped all over Delmarva in the first two innings Sunday en route to a 10-3 victory and a sweep of the two-game road series against the Shorebirds.

Hagerstown split two home games against Delmarva last week in the split four-game series.

The Suns (15-15) jumped on Delmarva starter Matt Tate for four runs in the first inning. After walking Jason Ellison, who stole second base, and Deivis Santos, Derek Bell hit a two-run double. Bell took third on the right fielder's error. After Nick Wilfong walked and stole second, Brian Carter hit a sacrifice fly. Kevin Alexander followed with a run-scoring single for the 4-0 lead.

Hagerstown padded the lead in the second inning. Tate walked the first two batters of the second inning and was taken out. Bryan Gann sacrificed the runners to second and third and Santos followed with a two-run double. Santos later scored on a wild pitch for a 7-0 lead.

The Suns weren't done. An error led to two more runs in the third inning and Hagerstown capped its scoring with a run in the eighth.

Kyle Gross (1-3) picked up the win going six innings, striking out four but walking six and allowing one earned run.

Chris Jones pitched two innings of scoreless relief, backed by Mark Hills and Jackson Markert, who each allowed a run, but the run against Markert was unearned.
