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.

Talking on a cellphone while driving in the state of Maryland will become expensive Oct. 1. That's when officers will be allowed to pull over drivers and fine them for chatting while behind the wheel. Although it currently is illegal for motorists to talk on cellphones in Maryland, police cannot pull them over and issue a citation unless they commit another offense, such as speeding, said Deputy 1st Class Carly Hose, spokeswoman for the Washington County Sheriff's Office. “As of Oct. 1, it will become a primary offense, meaning an officer can make a traffic stop and issue a citation based on that offense,” Hose said.
