FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - On most other nights, Hagerstown's Matt Logan would have been the hero. After all, the Suns first baseman went 4-for-4 with four RBIs. He had three singles, then in the ninth inning with the Suns trailing by two and down to their last out, Logan ripped a two-run home run to tie the game. Alas, Cape Fear scored in the 10th to take an 8-7 victory over the Suns and cut their lead in the South Atlantic League's Northern Division to two games. Hagerstown is 20-12, and the Crocs are 17-13.

It had all the feel of baseball's version of ancient water torture. Rip. Rip. Rip. In slow, agonizing fashion, the Hagerstown Suns took their time beating up on Cape Fear starter Edward Quezada in the third inning on Wednesday. It took 25 minutes and five singles for the Suns to score three runs, but it was more than enough to support a very patient John Sneed in a 9-1 South Atlantic League victory. The Suns played fundamentally sound, station-to-station baseball as runners circled the bases in merry-go-round fashion.

Aaron Dean pitched like he had to be somewhere. He did. "I have to go to pick up my girlfriend," the Hagerstown Suns pitcher said. "She's flying into Dulles from California tonight. " That wasn't the reason for Dean's effectiveness, but it was as good of an incentive as any. Especially since he mowed through the Cape Fear lineup with a five-hitter through eight innings Tuesday to lift the Suns to a 4-1 victory over the Crocs at Municipal Stadium. Dean pitched like he was already on cruise control heading down I-270 with the way he handled the Cape Fear batting order.
