The little plays -- the missed defensive assignments, the lack of hits in the clutch, the off-the-mark pitches -- that end up being the difference between winning and losing for the Hagerstown Suns.

Two Hagerstown errors in the last two innings allowed Delmarva to score three unearned runs for a come-from-behind 6-4 victory at Municipal Stadium.
