Suns blank Shorebirds

June 14, 2009

Matt Chico and Patrick McCoy combined on a four-hit shutout as the Hagerstown Suns defeated the Delmarva Shorebirds 6-0 on Sunday in a South Atlantic League game at Municipal Stadium.

Chico, on a rehab assignment for the Washington Nationals, worked the first four innings, giving up just two hits. He did not walk or strike out anyone.

McCoy (2-1) picked up the win with five innings of two-hit relief, striking out four.

Hagerstown got on the board in the first inning. Jose Lozada led off with a single and Derek Norris hit a one-out double to left to score Lozada. A wild pitch by Cole McCurry moved Norris to third, and Tyler Moore brought Norris home with a sacrifice fly.

The Suns made it 3-0 in the third when Lozada walked with one out and Stephen Lombardozzi followed with an RBI triple to right.

Hagerstown's final three runs came in the seventh off Shorebirds reliever Travis Keating. Michael Guerrero was hit by a pitch with one out, and Robby Jacobsen's double put runners at second and third. Chris Curran hit a two-run single, went to second on a wild pitch, went to third on Lozada's flyout to deep center and scored on Lombardozzi's single.
