Suns blanked on road

June 16, 2004

SALISBURY, Md. - James Johnson allowed just two hits in eight innings Tuesday as the Delmarva Shorebirds won their third straight game over the Hagerstown Suns, 5-0.

Jesse Schmidt doubled in the first inning and Derek Barrows singled in the second before the Suns were completely shut down by Johnson (3-5), who walked one and struck out seven.

By the end of the second, the Shorebirds (32-33) held a 4-0 lead. They scored three runs - but only one earned - in the first off Suns starter Jesse Floyd (1-5) on RBI singles by Chris Carter and Dustin Yount and a sacrifice fly by Nick Markakis.

Delmarva made it 4-0 in the second when Nate Spears walked and scored on a two-out double by Bryan Bass.

The Shorebirds added a run in the bottom of the eighth against reliever Mike Musgrave when Carter walked, moved to third on a single by Yount and scored on an errant throw by Suns catcher Brian Munhall.
