By BOB PARASILITI Staff Writer For a split second, Vernon Wells had more moves than a game of Twister. The only thing that had more gyrations was the ball he hit. It was all Wells and it ended Wells on Friday, as the Hagerstown center fielder drove in three runs with a first-inning home run and an eighth-inning double to lead the Suns to a 5-0 victory over Hickory to complete a four-game sweep before a season-high 5,466 fans for...

Dorothy was right when she said, "There's no place like home," in The Wizard of Oz. At least the Hagerstown Suns think so. After finishing a 12-day road trip with four straight losses, Hagerstown rebounded behind an outstanding pitching effort from John Sneed and Lorenzo Bagley's three-run homer for a 6-2 win over Hickory in a South Atlantic League game Tuesday night at Municipal Stadium. Crawdads starter Hansel Izquierdo (2-3) allowed just one base runner through the first three innings before Jesse Zepeda looped a single to left to open the fourth.

HICKORY, N.C. - The Hagerstown Suns took advantage of three Hickory errors to score five runs in the top of the 10th inning and beat the Crawdads 10-5 on Monday. Derran Watts drove in the go-ahead run with a two-run single, but three straight Hickory miscues extended the inning for the Suns (21-10), who have won three straight. Ryan Coultas hit a pair of solo home runs and Mike Carp added a solo blast for the Suns. Matt Miramontes (2-0) got the win, allowing just one hit - a three-run homer by Steve Lerud on the first pitch he threw - over 4 2/3 innings.

HICKORY, N.C. - The Hagerstown Suns couldn't even say, "What a difference a day makes. " They had problems and it was only a matter of hours after the last game. Just 18 hours after pulling out a win in the 14th inning earlier Saturday morning, Hagerstown's pitching staff suffered from a victory hangover as Hickory unloaded an eight-run second inning en route to a 20-9 pasting of the Suns. Hickory jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the second inning, fueled by a misplayed grounder by third baseman Derek Barrows that limited Mike Musgrave to just two innings in his second outing as a starter.

Nicol had three hits with two RBIs and topped it off by scoring a run to lead the Suns to a 3-2 victory over first-place Hickory.

Jeff Landing got in five holes on Tuesday. That would have been great if he was playing golf. It isn't so great since he was the starting pitcher for the Hagerstown Suns. Landing allowed the leadoff batter to reach in each of his five innings and German Marte added a sixth occasion to help ignite the Hickory offense and lift the Crawdads to a 7-3 win at Municipal Stadium and send the Suns to their fourth straight loss. Hickory only cashed in on three of the six occasions, which may not be par for the course, but in baseball, .500 is a great average.

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.

The Hagerstown Suns' march to a playoff berth was slowed like it met the Ides of March. On Monday, the Suns went in with a lion, but were taken out by a Lamb. Pitcher Stephen Strasburg, the Washington Nationals' young lion, made his third rehabilitation start in Hagerstown, but Hickory starter Will Lamb stole the spotlight with five innings of one-hit pitching to lead the Crawdads to a 3-1 victory before 1,652 fans at Municipal Stadium. For his second straight outing, Strasburg had an elevated pitch count in the first inning and fell behind as he threw 60 pitches in three innings in his fourth overall outing in his comeback from Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery.
