Suns, Jackets all tied up through nine

July 19, 2008

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The Hagerstown Suns played small ball after a rain delay to forge a 2-2 tie against the Augusta GreenJackets on Friday in a game that was still in progress when The Herald-Mail went to press.

Trailing 2-0 in the top of the eighth, Travis Reagan drew a one-out walk. Paul Lussier came on in relief of Waldis Joaquin for Augusta, but he didn't last long.

Jose Lozada reached on a bunt single and Mark Gildea walked to load the bases and spell the end for Lussier.

Andrew De La Garza took the mound and got Tim Pahuta to ground to first baseman Angel Villalona, but the runners were safe all around, including Reagan with the Suns' first run.

Jesus Valdez followed with a sacrifice fly to right which scored Lozada to tie the score at 2-2.

The GreenJackets got on the board first in the second inning when Villalona singled, Garrett Baker was hit by a pitch from Suns starter Cole Kimball and Andrew Davis walked to load the bases. Charlie Culberson drove in Villalona with a sacrifice fly.

Villalona scored Augusta's other run in the sixth when he singled and eventually scored on a bases-loaded walk.

Kimball allowed just two hits -- both to Villalona -- in 5 2/3 innings, but walked six.
