HICKORY, N.C. - The Hagerstown Suns took advantage of three Hickory errors to score five runs in the top of the 10th inning and beat the Crawdads 10-5 on Monday.
Derran Watts drove in the go-ahead run with a two-run single, but three straight Hickory miscues extended the inning for the Suns (21-10), who have won three straight.
Ryan Coultas hit a pair of solo home runs and Mike Carp added a solo blast for the Suns. Matt Miramontes (2-0) got the win, allowing just one hit - a three-run homer by Steve Lerud on the first pitch he threw - over 4 2/3 innings.
Lerud's homer gave Hickory a 5-3 lead, but the Suns tied the score in the eighth with four straight hits, including a two-run double by Carp.
