Suns send Tourists packing

August 22, 2005|By

Carlos Gomez had four of Hagerstown's 13 hits and drove in six runs, and Mike Devaney and Joe Serfass combined on a two-hit shutout as the Suns shook off Saturday's nightmare by terrorizing the Asheville Tourists 13-0 on Sunday evening at Municipal Stadium.

Hagerstown (19-32 South Atlantic League second half) blew a 7-1 lead and lost 14-7 in 10 innings to Asheville on Saturday. The Suns weren't about to let Sunday's game get away, scoring seven runs in their final two at-bats to turn what was already a rout into a laugher.

The Suns took a 3-0 lead in the second. Josh Wyrick doubled and later scored on a passed ball, and Gomez drove in a pair of runs with a two-out single.

Hagerstown made it 5-0 in the fourth. Matt Fisher walked, stole second and scored when Asheville threw the ball away on Kyle Brown's sacrifice bunt. Gomez later singled to score Brown.

In the fifth, Jesus Flores singled and Wyrick doubled again before Brown's sacrifice fly made it 6-0.

Joe Mihalics' RBI double and Gomez's second two-run single of the game made it 9-0 in the seventh. Wyrick and Brown drove in runs with singles in the eighth, and a fielding error and Gomez's double scored the final two.

Devaney (8-4) allowed one hit and four walks in six stellar innings, striking out six. Serfass earned his fourth save with three innings of one-hit ball, walking two and fanning two.
