Rain gives Suns another shot at win

June 14, 2008

EASTLAKE, Ohio - Change of weather, change of luck?

The Hagerstown Suns get a second chance to get things right the first time after heavy rain forced Friday's game with Lake County to be suspended in the second inning.

The Captains (40-27) led 2-1 after scoring two runs in the first inning off Suns starter Cole Kimball.

Lake County entered Friday's game with a two-game lead in the South Atlantic League North Division's first-half race with three games remaining. Meanwhile, the Suns (32-34) need to sweep the final three games of the half to finish above .500.

The suspended game will be completed through nine innings, beginning at 5:05 p.m. today, followed by a seven-inning game.

Lake County got its runs in the first as Kimball struggled. Kimball allowed three walks and a hit in the first to put himself in trouble.


The Suns lost two chances to score, both on outfield throws by Roman Pena.

Boomer Whiting was gunned down at the plate by Pena, attempting to score on an Aaron Seuss fly. Pena threw out Sean Rooney, who was trying to advance from second to third on a short single to left in the second.
