May 18, 2009

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. -- Hagerstown starter Terrence Engles struck out 12 batters, including the first hitter he faced in each of the seven innings he worked, on Monday to lead the Suns to a 2-1 victory over Kannapolis.

Engles (4-1) was dominant as he allowed only two hits and one walk in his seven innings. He struck out the side in the sixth inning.

The win was the Suns' fourth in the first five games of the road trip. Hagerstown (18-16) has won seven of its last nine games.

Engles was locked in a pitching duel with Gregory Infante until the Suns broke through for a 1-0 lead in the fifth inning.

Steven Souza and Micheal Guerrero each collected one-out singles to put runners at first and second. Robby Jacobsen grounded to third to force Guerrero, but second baseman Andrew Garcia threw the relay to first base away, allowing Souza to score.

Hagerstown added a run in the eighth on Aaron Seuss' sacrifice fly off reliever Drew O'Neil.

Kannapolis scored in the bottom of the eighth on Jon Gilmore's home run off Hagerstown reliever Carolos Peralta.

Osvaldo Rodriguez pitched the ninth for his sixth save.
