Suns employ old method to score win

August 29, 2005

SALISBURY, Md. - The Hagerstown Suns scored a victory Sunday while enjoying something they haven't seen too much of in the second half of the South Atlantic League season.

It's called an old-fashioned rally.

Hagerstown strung together four straight hits to lead off the fourth inning to manufacture three runs in a 7-4 victory over Delmarva to finish taking three-of-five games from the leading team in the SAL's North Division.

The Suns broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth by jumping on Delmarva starter Kevin Hart. Jose Coronado led off the inning with a triple and scored on Ambiorix Concepcion's single. After Concepcion stole second base, Grant Psomas doubled to right for the RBI.

Josh Wyrick followed with a single to center to score Psomas with the 4-1 lead.

Delmarva countered with two runs in the bottom of the inning, but Hagerstown answered back with a pair in the fifth. Matt Bacon doubled and took third on Carlos Gomez's single before scoring on Hart's errant pickoff throw. Gomez eventually scored on a wild pitch for the 6-3 lead.

Matt Durkin pitched 4 1/3 innings of relief of Jose Sanchez to earn his third win of the season in eight decisions. Durkin allowed one run on two hits while walking three and striking out four. Marcelo Perez got the final two outs in the ninth to earn his 12th save.

Bacon drove in two runs for the Suns while Kyle Brown, Coranado and Wyrick had two hits each.
