Hagerstown (48-31, 6-4) took a 2-0 lead in the first inning against BlueClaws starter Yari Sosa.

LAKEWOOD, N.J. — Lakewood pushed across a run with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning for a 1-0 victory over Hagerstown on Wednesday, leaving both teams with an 8-6 record in the second half of the South Atlantic League season. The Suns had a big problem with Lakewood starter Lisalberto Bonilla, who struck out 12 and walked none. Hagerstown managed only five hits off Bonilla and had just two scoring opportunities, both going for naught. The Suns left runners at first and third in the fifth inning and had two on in the top of the ninth with one out before Justin Martinson grounded into a double play.

After a successful homestand to start the season, the Hagerstown Suns played their first road game Thursday night. The Lakewood BlueClaws greeted them rather rudely. Lakewood exploded for six runs in the first inning and cruised to an 8-1 victory over Hagerstown in a South Atlantic League game. Suns starter Alex Meyer (1-1) didn't get out of the opening frame, allowing three hits and two walks - and he didn't get much help from his defense, which committed two errors. Gauntlett Eldemire led off with a single and went to second on right fielder Caleb Ramsey's error.

The Suns got on the scoreboard first, rallying for all four of their runs in the top of the second inning.

Offense is far from automatic for the Hagerstown Suns. That's because they are working without a clutch. Hagerstown had 17 chances to drive home runners in scoring position on Saturday. It only succeed once. It ended up being the Suns' downfall. Lakewood scored two runs in the 11th inning, capped by Avelino Asprilla's RBI double, to grab a 5-3 victory. The Suns had every chance to tie the game in their half of the 11th, but couldn't get the big hit. Hector Pellot singled and Jose Castro was hit by a Paul Overholt pitch to open the 11th.

There is some infinite wisdom for why Abner Doubleday gave each team 27 outs per game when he invented baseball. That's because every one of them is precious. The Hagerstown Suns realized that Tuesday. The only problem was they wasted the first 15 and made the most of the last 12. In this case, the majority won. The Lakewood BlueClaws scored five times in the first four innings with the help of four Suns errors and a home run by Art Charles, then held on as Hagerstown rallied but fell short in a 6-5 decision.

When the Hagerstown Suns can do all the little things, they are something special. When they can't, they are rather ordinary. It was an ordinary Wednesday at Municipal Stadium. Lakewood starter Jeb Stefan set the tone with six innings of one-hit pitching as the BlueClaws did all the things the Suns are normally known for doing to pull out a 6-1 victory to end a seven-game losing streak before 915 fans in rainy conditions. “That's baseball,” said Suns manager Tripp Keister.

Mooneyham allowed one hit and four walks while striking out seven in 7 1/3 innings of work to get the win. He improved to 8-3 while lowering his ERA to 2.25. After giving up consecutive walks with one out in the top of the eighth, Mooneyham was relieved by Self to try to protect a 2-0 lead. Self allowed only one hit and had a pair of strikeouts in 1 2/3 innings of relief to notch his fourth save of the year.

The game changed with one swing of the bat for the Hagerstown Suns on Friday. The situation didn't though, although it got a little bit tougher. Lakewood scored nine runs in the final three innings to erase a 5-2 deficit to grab an untimely 11-5 victory over the Suns before 1,734 fans at Municipal Stadium, which seriously put a crimp in Hagerstown's quest for the South Atlantic League Northern Division first-half title. Mitch Walding tied the game with a three-run home run in the seventh before Lakewood added three runs in the eighth and ninth innings to turn the outcome into a blowout.

The Hagerstown Suns played tag on Wednesday, and Tony Renda was “it.” It was a one-run game in the seventh inning and the Suns' designated hitter was on the hot seat. Renda fed off the pressure and stroked a two-out single to center to score Stephen Perez from second with the insurance run in a 3-1 victory over Lakewood in an afternoon matinee at Municipal Stadium. Circumstance and opportunity collided to put Renda in the clutch position in a game that was 2-1. “I wanted Tony to hit with a man on second base,” said Suns manager Tripp Keister.

Brandon Miller had a surge of power on Tuesday. So did the Hagerstown Suns. Miller, Hagerstown's right fielder, hit a grand slam in the seventh inning to complete the Suns' three home run night, which paved the way to a runaway 11-2 win over the Lakewood BlueClaws before 512 fans at Municipal Stadium. It was a direct turnaround for the Suns (7-6), who struggled to get five hits in Monday's 5-1 loss and showed little diversity in the offense. On Tuesday, they rolled out the power with all three of the team's heaviest hitters connecting.
