Shorebirds pull it out in 10th vs. Suns

May 30, 2008

Delmarva used an error in the 10th inning to turn the tide for the Eastern Shore team.

The Shorebirds scored three runs in the 10th to turn back the Hagerstown Suns 7-4 on Thursday in a game that resembled a tug-of-war.

Each team took turns leading, but Delmarva got the one lead that counted the most.

Ryan Adams led off the 10th by reaching on Stephen King's fielding error. That opened the door that reliever Erik Arnesen (4-1) couldn't close.

Wally Crancer capped the rally with a two-run double after Adams was moved around the bases and scored on Tyler Henson's single.


Hagerstown held leads of 1-0 and 4-2 along the way.

The Suns went ahead in the second on Trevor Lawhorn's second homer of the season, a drive to left off Delmarva starter Cole McCurry.

The Suns regained the lead in the sixth on RBI singles by Bill Rhinehart and Aaron Seuss and a run-scoring double by King.

Delmarva tied the score in the eighth on an RBI single by Joe Mahoney and a double by Henson off reliever Chris Lugo.

Jeff Mandel started for the Suns and pitched five innings.
