Suns bust Captains

July 16, 2007

One was enough for Jhonny Nunez.

Nunez pitched six innings of one-hit baseball on Sunday to make a solo home run by Francisco Plasencia stand up to lead the Hagerstown Suns to a 1-0 victory over Lake County.

Nunez, who missed his previous two starts due to back spasms, didn't walk anyone while striking out four to improve to 2-6 on the season. Eric Arnesen, Coby Mavroulis and Yader Peralta each pitched an inning in relief to nail down the two-hit victory.

Peralta earned his first save of the season.

The only run of the game came with one out in the second inning, when Plasencia hit a change-up from Lake County starter Paolo Espino over the right- field fence for his fourth homer of the season.
