Rain makes waves for Suns

May 19, 2003

COLUMBUS, Ga. - The difference between a successful road trip and just another extra-long bus ride will be answered today for the Hagerstown Suns.

Hagerstown (21-22) put a grueling final touch on the first of two swings through Georgia today with a matinee doubleheader against the South Georgia Waves, beginning at 11:30 a.m.

The Suns are 4-2 on the trip and have shown some resiliancy on the road while playing with less than their full compliment of players. Hagerstown is suffering through the injuries of some of its key players and have responded well, including a four-game winning streak.

The Suns have been without outfielder Kevin Alexander, third baseman Kevin Kelly, catcher Dayton Buller and designated hitter Josh Columbus during the swing. Alexander and Kelly are out with hand injuries while Columbus is trying to come back from a hamstring problem.

Hagerstown will be attempting to come back on a winning note while trying to erase Saturday's 6-5 loss in 11 innings. Hector Perozo homered to win a game that the Suns led 3-1 and 5-4.

Karl Jernigan, Derin McMains and Carlos Sosa have paced the Suns offensively on the swing.
