May 13, 2009

Chris Curran went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two RBIs and Derek Norris went 2-for-4 with a solo home run as the Hagerstown Suns closed out their recent homestand at Municipal Stadium with a 6-3 victory over the West Virginia Power on Tuesday.

Aaron Seuss and Steven Souza also had two hits each for the Suns (14-15), while starter Terrence Engles (3-1) pitched five innings for the win. He allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five.

Hagerstown took a 2-0 lead in the first as Stephen Lombardozzi scored from third on a passed ball and Norris scored from second on a single by Tyler Moore.

The Suns made it 3-0 in the third on Norris' seventh blast of the season. They extended it to 4-0 in the fourth as Curran stole third and came home on catcher Andrew Walker's throwing error.

Osvaldo Rodriguez, the Suns' third pitcher of the game, held the Power to no runs and no hits over the final 1 2/3 innings to pick up his fourth save of the season.
