Michael Burgess can hit short balls, too.
Burgess stroked a bases-loaded single to right with none out in the ninth to help the Hagerstown Suns pull out a wild 6-5 win over Hickory on Monday in the nightcap of a doubleheader at Municipal Stadium.
The Crawdads won 8-1 in the opener in the completion of a game that was suspended by rain on Sunday.
Jose Lozada led off the ninth with a single off Hickory reliever Charles Benoit. Tim Pahuta followed with a single and Stephen King loaded the bases when Benoit threw away a sacrifice bunt attempt to set the table for Burgess.
The teams traded runs in the seventh and eighth innings as Hickory came back from a 3-2 deficit to force Burgess' final-inning heroics.
