July 06, 2006

EASTLAKE, Ohio - Drew Butera hit a solo home run in the sixth inning for the only run of the game as the Hagerstown Suns notched a 1-0 victory over Lake County in a Wednesday morning matinee.

Jeff Landing pitched six shutout innings, scattering five hits while striking out four. It was Landing's fourth shutout start of at least five innings against the Captains this season.

Eric Brown pitched the seventh and Kevin Tomasiewicz went the final two innings for his eighth save. Tomasiewicz has allowed two runs in 18 1/3 innings against the Captains.

Butera's home run broke up Lake County starter Tom Cowley's no-hit game. It was the fifth home run the Suns (6-7, 34-49) hit in the three-game series.
