Fun is a relative thing. The amount of merriment is often a matter of which side of the celebration one stands. It was hats and horns for Hickory on Thursday as the Crawdads used a fortuitous three-run second inning to build a 5-3 victory and claim a critical four-game series against the Hagerstown Suns at Municipal Stadium. “Like we have been saying the last three nights, that is a real good club,” said Suns manager Brian Daubach. “They are fun to watch. They really clicked in this series.” Daubach, the baseball purist, can easily celebrate Hickory's success.

The Hagerstown Suns found out that Momentum is a fickle guy. He only stays around the team that gives him the most attention. The Suns ignored him on Wednesday. Hagerstown failed to fully capitalize on a bases-loaded situation with none out in the third, allowing Hickory to come back and score seven unanswered runs en route to a 8-3 victory before 866 at Municipal Stadium. The Suns (9-4) were only able to push across one run in the prime opportunity and it spelled the end of their three-game winning streak and allowed Hickory (9-4)

The Hagerstown Suns regained the lead in the South Atlantic League's Northern Division standings Sunday afternoon. That lead lasted less than 24 hours.

The loss by Hagerstown (53-39, 15-10 second half), combined with Hickory's 3-0 win over Lakewood, dropped the Suns one half-game behind Hickory in the division.

The Hagerstown Suns have been used to uphill battles most of the season. On Tuesday, the hill got a little steeper. Joey Gallo went 4-for-4, including three home runs, and drove in four runs to lift Hickory to a 6-2 victory over Hagerstown in the first game of the Crawdads' doubleheader sweep at Municipal Stadium. Gallo's salvo won the opening game of a crucial four-game series with Hagerstown which could very well determine the first-half champion in the South Atlantic League's Northern Division.

With a more aggressive approach, Hagerstown turned back the Crawdads 10-3 to keep its hopes alive for a first-half championship.

Ivan Pineyro found a way to escape becoming a victim of Hickory's home run hitters. Don't let the Crawdads hit the ball. Pineyro struck out 12 of the 18 Hickory hitters who went down swinging over six innings as the Hagerstown Suns notched a 3-0 victory on a chilly, wet Sunday before 553 fans at Municipal Stadium. Pineyro (1-2) had his best outing of the season, punching out a dozen on 75 pitches, while allowing three hits - all doubles - and two walks. David Fischer pitched the final three innings - getting the first six outs on whiffs - to pick up his second save, while closing out the five-hit shutout.

Kylin Turnbull (1-0) returned to the Suns and immediately notched a victory with six innings of three-hit pitching, allowing one run without a walk while striking out seven.
