Friday game - Suns can'ts top Intimidators

May 20, 2002

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. - Kannapolis scored five unearned runs in the third inning - with the help of two Hagerstown errors - on Friday to allow the Intimidators to hang on for a 6-5 victory.

Hagerstown starter Kyle Gross (0-1) and first baseman Julio Cordido each committed miscues to allow Kannapolis (19-23) to break a 1-1 tie and drop the Suns (18-24) into seventh place in the South Atlantic League's Northern Division.

Mike Spidalli drove in run on Cordido's error to break the tie. Eric Storey's RBI single led to Gross's exit. After reliever Josh Cram issued a bases-loaded walk to Derek Wigginton, Gustavo Molina hit a two-run single to cap the inning.

The Suns got back in the game slowly as Branden Florence doubled and eventually scored on Julian Benavidez's ground out in the fourth.

Hagerstown added two in the fifth with two outs on Bryan Carter's RBI double and Leonel Cabrera's single to cut the deficit to two runs.

Cordido tripled in the eighth and scored on Robbie Meyer's single, but Josh Fields came on to get his seventh save in the ninth to preserve the win for Andrew Fryson (3-1).
