HICKORY, N.C. -- Looking for the series win on the road against the Hickory Crawdads on Tuesday, the Hagerstown Suns got five strong innings from starter Jack McGeary, but watched their 3-2 lead disappear in a three-run Hickory sixth. McGeary allowed just two earned runs and left the game in line to pick up his first victory of the season, but the Crawdads tagged Hagerstown reliever Justin Phillabaum (0-2) for four runs over the next 1 2/3 innings en route to a 6-3 victory. With the loss, the Suns settled for a split of the four-game series and fell to seven games behind first-place Lakewood in the South Atlantic League Northern Division, with 21 games left to play in the first half of the season.
