The Hagerstown Suns have been turned into bad gremlins. Night is good but bright light is bad. The Suns have been worn down by day games, of all things, and it is all completely out of their control. The heavy storm that rolled through Hagerstown on July 22 blew over one of the eight light standards at Municipal Stadium. After it was determined the remaining units didn't provide enough lighting for a professional baseball game, Hagerstown rescheduled two of the final four games on the last homestand for afternoon starts.

Delmarva used an error in the 10th inning to turn the tide for the Eastern Shore team. The Shorebirds scored three runs in the 10th to turn back the Hagerstown Suns 7-4 on Thursday in a game that resembled a tug-of-war. Each team took turns leading, but Delmarva got the one lead that counted the most. Ryan Adams led off the 10th by reaching on Stephen King's fielding error. That opened the door that reliever Erik Arnesen (4-1) couldn't close. Wally Crancer capped the rally with a two-run double after Adams was moved around the bases and scored on Tyler Henson's single.

It was one of those nights. No matter where Hagerstown was positioned on the Municipal Stadium field, Greensboro found a way to hit the ball where the Suns weren't. There's an old saying for that kind of baseball. "They hit it where we weren't," Suns manager Darnell Coles said. "It was a rough night. " The Grasshoppers had their share of big hits, but it was the 15 well-placed singles - along with five walks - that did the Suns in on Monday in an agony-filled 14-7 loss.
