The formula was easy. The Hagerstown Suns dropped the ball and then dropped the series.
Errors continued to plague the Suns on Thursday night as they sent the Lakewood BlueClaws on their way with a 7-2 victory at Municipal Stadium.
Lakewood completed a three-game sweep in a series marked by defensive mistakes for the Suns.
In the top of the first, Lakewood's Anthony Gose reached first on an error by Hagerstown third baseman James Keithley and eventually scored on Travis d'Arnaud's single to right. Two batters later, d'Arnaud scored on Travis Mattair's single to right. Vladimir De Los Santos followed by lining a two-run single to center to give the BlueClaws a 4-0 lead.
The Suns responded in the bottom half when Valerio Heredia led off the inning with a walk and scored when Steve Lombardozzi tripled into the left-field corner to cut the Hagerstown deficit to 4-1.
