The Lakewood BlueClaws ordered a round of doubles on Monday to turn back the Hagerstown Suns. Lakewood used three doubles to produce its first two runs and held on for a 3-1 victory that dented Hagerstown’s drive to win the first-half title in the South Atlantic League Northern Division. The loss, coupled with Greensboro’s 5-0 win over West Virginia, cuts Hagerstown’s lead to one game. Lakewood took a 1-0 lead over Suns starter Taylor Jordan (6-3)  in the third inning on doubles by Alan Schoenberger and Zach Collier.

It has been four years since Hugh Jackman's Wolverine got to carry a movie in the pile of cinematic garbage that was “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”  The entire “X-Men” franchise would be a joke right now if it hadn't creatively rebounded with the (mostly) Wolverine-free “X-Men: First Class” two years ago. I have to question the wisdom in letting him stand alone again, but then again there's no denying that he's the face of the franchise. Many critics argue that he shouldn't be, favoring other mutants with “better” powers, but it's a harsh fact that we're expected to find him terribly interesting.

If Mike Ramsey had ever written a master plan for the 2004 baseball season, the Hagerstown Suns might finally be getting around to reading it. The Cliff's Notes version goes something like, "If the pitching can keep it close, there will always be a chance to win in the end. " Everyone did their part Sunday as the pitching was good enough to allow Hagerstown to use Tim Hutting's ninth-inning sacrifice fly to knock off Lakewood 5-4 for a...

The Hagerstown Suns have a habit of making something out of nothing. What was starting to look like a harmless seventh inning on Thursday turned into a two-out, five-run rally to lift the Suns to an 8-3 win over Lakewood. Two hits, two errors and a wild pitch helped Hagerstown (76-51, 38-22) break a 3-3 tie and give the Suns their 10th win in the last 12 games. The Suns moved to a 1 1/2-game lead in the South Atlantic League Northern Division second-half race. West Virginia dropped a 5-4 decision to Charleston on Thursday.

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.

It would seem the Lakewood Blueclaws had the Hagerstown Suns right where they wanted them. The BlueClaws spotted the Suns a 3-0 lead and then scored in each of the last four innings on Monday to pull out a 5-4 South Atlantic League victory. Brian Pointer drew a one-out walk off Cody Davis (1-3), Hagerstown's fourth pitcher of the night, and Alejandro Villalobos hit a double to left to score the winning run. Villalobos, the No. 9 hitter, finished with three hits and two RBIs and scored a run to make a winner of Chris Burgess (2-2)

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.
