LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Carlos Gomez led off the 10th inning with a home run Thursday to lift the Hagerstown Suns to a 2-1 victory over Lakewood.
Suns closer Carlos Muniz was forced to work hard for his 10th save, striking out Ryan Frith with runners on second and third to preserve the win.
Tim Worthington got the victory after replacing starter Gabriel Hernandez in the seventh. Hernandez was at his best with six shutout innings, allowing three hits while walking one and striking out nine in the no-decision.
The Suns took a 1-0 lead in the fifth against Lakewood starter J.A. Happ with Tyler Davidson leading off with a single. Davidson, not known for his speed, got a jump on a hit-and-run play and scored all the way from first on Ryan Coultas' double down the left-field line.
