Suns blank Captains

May 06, 2006

EASTLAKE, Ohio

Jeff Landing pitched into the ninth and Elvis Cruz clubbed a two-run home run Friday to lead the Hagerstown Suns to a 4-0 victory over Lake County.

Landing went 8 1/3 innings, allowing only four hits and two walks while striking out five.

Marcelo Perez came on with one out in the ninth and got Mike Conroy to ground into a game-ending double play to earn his first save.

Cruz padded the Suns' 1-0 lead with his home run - his third of the season - over the left-field bleachers in the fifth off Captains starter Albert Vargas.
