Suns log another rainout

July 13, 2003|by BOB PARASILITI

Saturday was just another day in the life of the Hagerstown Suns.

There wasn't a game at Municipal Stadium - a two-hour rain delay took care of that - but it was still one of the things baseball teams have to endure during a season.

"You have to turn the page everyday," Suns manager Mike Ramsey said. "No matter what, you have to start new every day."

The 2003 Suns' journal got another oh-so-familar entry added to it on Saturday. Another rainout postponed the scheduled game with Lake County.


The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Tuesday, beginning at 11:05 a.m.

The forced off day came on the heels of one of the most dramatic wins of the season for the Suns on Friday against Delmara.

Day 87 of the Suns' journal had the entry of Hagerstown scoring four runs with one out in the ninth to pull out a 4-2 win over the Shorebirds.

Unlike other sports, Ramsey downplayed the idea of any momentum carrying over - or being lost - on Saturday.

"I don't really think that will affect anything," Ramsey said. "It could, but now we are going into a big series. For us, every one is big."

The Suns (46-41, 11-9) sit in third place in the South Atlantic League Northern Division, 1 1/2 games behind second-place Lake County, which won the first-half title.

"We are kind of treading water, but we are in a lot better position right now though than we were after 20 games in the first half of the season," Ramsey said.
