Suns do more walking than hitting in win

June 23, 2008

SALISBURY, Md. -- The Hagerstown Suns only managed three hits against Delmarva on Sunday evening, but they made the most of them in a 7-2 victory over the Shorebirds.

The Suns (3-1), who moved into a first-place tie with Greensboro in the South Atlantic League standings, drew nine walks and capitalized on a pair of Delmarva errors.

The Suns got all three of their hits in the top of the fifth inning as they rallied for six runs to take a 7-1 lead.

Michael Burgess drew a walk to lead off the fifth for Hagerstown, went to second on Travis Reagan's sacrifice bunt and scored on a single by Tim Pahuta to give the Suns a 2-1 lead.

After Mark Gildea and Valerio Heredia drew back-to-back walks to load the bases, Brandon Whiting reached on an error as Pahuta scored to make it 3-1.

Gildea then scored on a sacrifice fly by Daniel Lyons, and Stephen King capped the scoring with a three-run homer to left.

Suns starter Bradley Myers (3-2) went five innings for the win, allowing one unearned run, four hits and a walk while striking out three.

Shorebirds starter Luis Noel (7-2) went 4 2/3 innings in the loss. He allowed all seven runs, but only one was earned.
