Woolard shines for Suns

April 30, 2003

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Glenn Woolard had his best pitching performance of the season Tuesday night and the Hagerstown Suns had 13 hits in a 5-2 victory over Lexington in front of 4,464 fans.

Woolard picked up his second win in three decisions, using 87 pitches to baffle the Legends. He allowed only a home run by Pat Peavey in the fifth inning, working seven innings before giving way to Josh Cram.

Woolard struck out six and walked two. He threw 54 pitches for strikes.

The Suns (11-13), who lost three of four to the Legends at Municpal Stadium, received a three-hit performance from third baseman Kevin Kelly, who was hit on the left hand by a pitch from Chris Sampson in the seventh inning. He was taken to the hospital for X-rays.

Derin McMains had a pair of triples, one from each side of the plate, for the Suns. A fifth-inning triple drove in Fred Lewis; the other started a two-run seventh-inning. McMains was driven in on a single by Aaron Hornostaj.


After Kelly was hit, Hornostaj scored from second on a single by Jason Columbus to give the Suns a 5-1 lead in the seventh.

Columbus added two more hits and reached base twice with walks.

Note: The Suns have announced that a pair of postponements on the road at the beginning of April against Kannapolis will be made up at Municipal Stadium.

The teams will start Saturday with the continuation of a game in the first inning followed by a 7-inning contest. A doubleheader will be played Monday.

Single games will be played Sunday and Tuesday.

Ticketholders for the Saturday and Monday doubleheaders will be able to use their tickets for both games.
