GREENSBORO, N.C. - Like most cliffhangers, any thrilling conclusions will have to wait for another day.

The Hagerstown Suns' quest for a four-game sweep came up all wet Sunday as their game with Greensboro was halted and suspended by rain after five innings. The game will be concluded when the Grasshoppers are in Hagerstown on May 3-6.

Hagerstown (11-12) scored single runs in the first and second innings, before Greensboro tied the game with two runs in the fifth before the rain halted the game.

Suns starter Cole Kimball lasted 4 2/3 innings, allowing the two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out seven before leaving in favor of reliever Erik Arneson.

Hagerstown took a 1-0 lead in the first against Greensboro starter Stu Alexander. Francisco Plasencia led off with a double and advanced to second on Dan Lyon's sacrifice bunt before scoring on Bill Rhinehart's line-drive single to right.

Aaron Seuss started the second-inning rally by reacing on an error by first baseman Adam Howard. After Tim Pahuta's walk and Jake Smolinski's sacrifice bunt, Seuss scored on Travis Reagan's grounder to short.

Greensboro tied the score in the fifth on Dan Garcia's two-run single with the bases loaded.
