Delay worth wait as Suns, Power split

May 11, 2008

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The Hagerstwon Suns finished of what they started Friday on Saturday.

The Suns protected a 3-0 lead it held after two innings of a game suspended by rain a day earlier and poured it on with the help of a Aaron Seuss home run for a 9-0 victory over West Virginia.

Steffan Wilson homered to lead off the fifth to give the Power a 5-4 win in the regularly scheduled game.

Seuss was the first batter in the restart of the game and drove a reliever Nick Tyson's pitch over the left-field wall for his third homer of the year.

Hagerstown capped the rout with five runs in the fifth, sparked by Stephen King's RBI triple.

The Suns loaded the bases with two outs with two walks before Boomer Whiting was hit by a Jose Garcia pitch to drive in a run.


Dan Lyons' RBI single and a two-run double by Bill Rhinehart capped the rally.

Erik Arnesen replaced Brad Myers, who started the game, and went four innings for the win, allowing four hits.

In the nightcap, the Suns jumped out to a 3-2 lead in the second. Lyons and Rhinehart each drove in runs in the second.

Starter Cole Kimball lasted 3 2/3 innings. Kyle Gunderson gave up Wilson's homer to take the loss.
