KANNAPOLIS, N.C. -- Tyler Moore hit a two-run double with two outs in the bottom of the third inning to lift the Hagerstown Suns to a 4-2 victory over Kannapolis.

Jose Lozada started the rally with a one-out single off Intimidators starter Dexter Carter (1-2). Derek Norris followed with a two-out single to set up Moore, who hit a line drive to left to bring in the runs and give the Suns a 4-0 lead.

The win broke a two-game losing streak for the Suns (19-18), who went 5-3 on their road trip to Greensboro and Kannapolis.

Hagerstown starter Marcos Frias (2-1) cruised through six innings, allowing one run on five hits for the win. He didn't allow a walk and struck out six.
