COLUMBIA, S.C. - It's been said that all good things must come to an end. The Hagerstown Suns made their pitch to prove bad ones thankfully go by the wayside, too. Mike Musgrave pitched six shutout innings and the Suns used three Capital City errors to build a five-run lead Wednesday before holding on for a 5-2 victory to end their 10-game losing streak. The victory salvaged the last game of an eight-game Southern swing on which the Suns (16-36, 44-75) were outscored 47-27.

COLUMBIA, S.C. - The Hagerstown Suns' flair for the dramatic ended up being a desperate signal flare for help. Once again, the Suns put themselves in position to make a clutch play to come from behind and win a game. Once again, it was all talk and no action. It's been the story for Hagerstown on its current road trip as the Suns loaded the bases in the ninth inning and came up empty on Sunday in a 7-4 loss to Capital City. It was Hagerstown's eighth straight loss and dropped it to 0-5 on the road trip.

In Mike Ramsey's mind, four runs is the magic number. "If we can score runs a game, I like our chances," said the Hagerstown Suns manager. Unfortunately, Ramsey made that comment after his anemic offense struggled to plate even one run in a 4-1 loss to Capital City in a South Atlantic League game Tuesday night before 1,769 fans at Municipal Stadium, who had little cause for excitement. The Suns were limited to just four hits and struck out 10 times against a trio of Capital City pitchers.

bobp@herald-mail.com Win and the world is your yard sale. Lose and you have as much luck as an Enron stockholder. Right now, the Hagerstown Suns are looking to re-invest. Everything continued to go against Hagerstown on Friday as Justin Huber hit a three-run homer and Rob McIntyre added a two-run shot to lift Capital City to a 6-2 win over the struggling Suns. Capital City (14-6) bunched most of its offense into two innings - the first and the sixth - by taking advantage of extra chances.

When the Hagerstown Suns unload the heavy artillery, they have become tough to beat. But on Friday, they wheeled out some of their lesser caliber offense ... and it's tough to conquer an opponent when you're wielding squirt guns and pea shooters. Capital City starter Leoncio Estrella disarmed Hagerstown's suddenly rejuvenated batting order, holding the Suns to five singles through eight innings to help the Bombers to a 2-1 victory before 3,273 Firework Night fans at Municipal Stadium.

koelble@herald-mail.com Brian Buscher sat on the bench for 8 2/3 innings watching a pretty good baseball game between Hagerstown and Capital City Wednesday night. When his number was called in a pinch-hitting role, Buscher delivered a clutch RBI single to give the Suns a 6-5 South Atlantic League victory, their second ninth-inning win in the four-game series. "It didn't bother me to watch the game from the bench," Buscher said. "I got a little nervous when I was told to be ready in the eighth.

The Hagerstown Suns took the easy way out on Thursday. It was easier to grab extra bases than it was to steal them. Easier to explode for runs than to manufacture them. And most of all, it's much, much easier to trot around the bases than run them. Hagerstown's John Sneed shut down Capital City's vaunted running game while Bobby Cripps and Mike Young provided major lifts with two hits and two RBIs each to carry the Suns to a 7-2 South Atlantic League victory. The Suns (13-21, 57-47 overall)

bobp@herald-mail.com The Hagerstown Suns showed Capital City how the bottom half lives on Thursday. The last five hitters in the Suns order sent the Bombers looking for a foxhole. Brian Buscher led an onslaught of the fifth through ninth hitters in Hagerstown's batting order which hit a combined 11-for-19 and seven RBI in a 9-2 victory and a series win over the Bombers. In contrast, the Suns' top four in the batting order were a collective 1-for-16 with four walks.

bobp@herald-mail.com The Hagerstown Suns are falling apart at their very foundation. When the season opened, starting pitching was to be the bricks and defense the mortar to give the Suns something to build on. Right now, it seems Hagerstown is building on a patch of quicksand. The Suns took a 4-0 lead and then watched it sink slowly into a quagmire of mistakes Monday as Capital City pounded out a 12-4 victory behind the six-RBI night of catcher Justin Huber. "It got away from us in a hurry," Suns manager Mike Ramsey said.

My daughter was studying for a test on states and their capitals, so I was trying to help her. As we drove along, I would say a state name, expecting her to say the capital. She remembered many of the capitals because she had learned them in previous years, but there were a few elusive ones. Kentucky always was a hard one for us to remember, but the events of the last two weeks just seem to point to Louisville as capital potential ... on the basketball court, anyway. But, alas, Louisville is not the state capital.

In the old days, young people joined the service for the chance to see the world. That idea has become more refined nowadays. Now, touring the country is as easy as becoming a catcher in the New York Mets organization. Tony Piazza is as close to a nomad that baseball has. For the last three seasons, the 24-year-old catcher has climbed up and down the rungs of New York's minor league ladder, playing wherever the Mets need someone behind the plate. "When I came out of college, I was used to playing all the time," Piazza said last Sunday.
