Jackets rush Suns' bullpen

August 14, 2009

The Hagerstown Suns forgot how to spell relief on Friday.

Augusta scored four runs in the final three innings against Hagerstown's bullpen to notch a 6-3 victory and send the Suns to their sixth straight loss.

It was the Suns' seventh straight loss at home and dropped them to 3-16 at Municipal Stadium in the second half.

Augusta broke a 2-2 tie in the seventh on a sacrifice fly by Johnny Monell and James Simmons' RBI single off Austin Garrett for a 4-2 lead. Garrett relieved starter Marcos Frias, who allowed two runs on five hits, while striking out four in six innings.

Augusta added single runs in the eighth and ninth off Kevin Light to close out the scoring.

Hagerstown took a 2-0 lead off Augusta starter Mike Loree on Tyler Moore's RBI single in the third inning and Chris Curran's two-out ground-rule double in the fourth.
