ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Hagerstown's Isabel Giron often struggles in the first inning. Sunday's game against the Asheville Tourists was no different. He gave up three runs, and the Suns trailed by a run. But Giron settled down, and the Suns' bats heated up, scoring 12 unanswered runs on the way to a 13-3 victory over the Tourists. Giron went seven innings, allowing only those three runs, and held the homestanding Tourists to six hits. He struck out six and walked only one to square his record at 9-9. He got plenty of offensive support from his mates, led by Chris Hayes' 3-for-4 performance that included his third home run of the year and produced four RBIs.

John Sneed made just two mistakes in seven innings Monday night, and both were hit over the rightfield wall. Ultimately, however, it was an Anthony Salley pitch which wasn't hit at all that made the difference. Leading 3-2, Greensboro scored an insurance run on a wild pitch in the eighth inning, and held on for a 4-3 South Atlantic League win at Municipal Stadium before 1,096 fans, dropping the Suns to 4-8 in the second half. Salley, who relieved Sneed (9-2) to start the eighth, walked Marc Mirizzi with one out. Allen Butler's single to center pushed Mirizzi to third before Salley uncorked his eighth wild pitch of the season for a 4-2 lead.

Macon Braves manager Brian Snitker might have been better off starting a reliever Wednesday night against the Hagerstown Suns. The Macon bullpen held Hagerstown hitless through the last five innings, allowing just two base runners, while the Suns pitching staff was struggling. But the nine runs Hagerstown scored against Braves starter Joey Nation (6-11) was enough for a 9-6 South Atlantic League win before 1,352 fans at Municipal Stadium. Delmarva's 2-1 win over Columbus, however, keeps the Suns (75-55)

It was with great anticipation that I waited for the arrival of “Twilight of the Elites,” written by Christopher Hayes. One can only be amazed at his gifts in orchestrating his two-hour program every Saturday and Sunday morning. It is no exaggeration to compliment Chris so lavishly by saying that he produces a much more educative setting than any of his competitors. One reviewer of his new book went so far as to write, “Chris Hayes is a gift to this republic.” Chris is the closest thing to a walking encyclopedia that I have ever met. Hayes makes a simple, straightforward and very serious charge: The elite leadership in our country who manage our major institutions has failed their duties as credible examples of what is properly expected of those at the top of our social ranks.

Greg Morrison had a little trouble grasping the concept of being the No. 4 hitter in the Hagerstown Suns' batting order, but considering Saturday's results, who cares? The first baseman was supposed to be the cleanup hitter, but the Suns benefited because Morrison was a litterbug. Morrison went 4-for-4 with a walk - falling a home run short of the cycle - to score four runs and drive in two others to help lead the Suns to a 12-3 shellacking of the Delmarva Shorebirds at Municipal Stadium.

It had all the feel of baseball's version of ancient water torture. Rip. Rip. Rip. In slow, agonizing fashion, the Hagerstown Suns took their time beating up on Cape Fear starter Edward Quezada in the third inning on Wednesday. It took 25 minutes and five singles for the Suns to score three runs, but it was more than enough to support a very patient John Sneed in a 9-1 South Atlantic League victory. The Suns played fundamentally sound, station-to-station baseball as runners circled the bases in merry-go-round fashion.

Hagerstown Suns manager Marty Pevey's favorite video is an action thriller with a lot of destruction and a happy ending. Forget Titanic. Pevey has been watching 1997 films of Greg Morrison during his triple-crown season at Medicine Hat. That's when the first baseman was at his best, hitting for average, power and production with a lost ability to drive the ball to the opposite field. On Saturday, film became reality, as Morrison went from screen star to center stage. The left-handed Morrison broke open a tie game with a two-out, two-run double on a drive to left off left-handed closer Shawn Barry to highlight a four-run eighth inning and lift the Suns to a come-from-behind 11-9 victory over Capital City Bombers at Municipal Stadium.
