SALISBURY, Md. -- The Hagerstown Suns dropped their final game of the first half of the South Atlantic League season Sunday, losing 3-2 to the Delmarva Shorebirds.
The Suns (31-36) took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning on Derek Norris' league-leading 14th home run. He also has a league-best 51 RBIs to go along with his .312 batting average.
Delmarva (36-33) came right back in the bottom of the first with a run on two hits against starting pitcher Paul Demny. Demny settled down after that and did not allow another run in his five innings of work.
The Suns took a 2-1 lead in the fifth. With the bases loaded and no outs, Robby Jacobsen scored from third base on a wild pitch. But a double play and a strikeout ended the threat from the Suns, and Delmarva responded with two runs off reliever Drew Storen (0-1) in the sixth to take a 3-2 lead.
