All the Hagerstown Suns did was open the door a crack. It was all the Delmarva Shorebirds needed to force their way through. The Shorebirds took advantage of all the openings that the Suns didn't, using two errors and a leadoff walk as starting points to score four runs and notch a 5-1 victory in Friday's South Atlantic League game at Municipal Stadium. Delmarva used two errors by third baseman Mike McQuillan to score three unearned runs off Suns starter Pedro Encarnacion, and a leadoff walk by reliever Ronald Pena set the table for a 4-0 lead that Hagerstown could never erase.

The Delmarva Shorebirds did something on Saturday they couldn't manage on Friday. They scored ... and did it early and often. Nik Balog highlighted a four-run first inning as the Shorebirds took an early lead and then held on tightly for a 7-6 victory over the Hagerstown Suns. It was a twist from Friday, when the Suns shut down the Shorebirds to the tune of 4-0. But this time, Delmarva scored all seven of its runs in the first three innings and settled in behind Branden Kline (1-0)

The Hagerstown Suns took the field for their minor league baseball home opener Thursday, an unseasonably warm spring night, sporting new red, white and blue uniforms mirroring their parent team, the Washington Nationals. Mayor David S. Gysberts ceremoniously tossed out the first pitch before the Suns took on the Delmarva Shorebirds. “It was exhilarating,” said Gysberts, who is in his first term as mayor. “To think I used to sit in this dugout as a bat boy ... I never thought I would be here, as the mayor, throwing out the first pitch.” Chris Preisler, 65, of Chambersburg, Pa., said she has been attending Suns' games for the past 20 years.  Preisler said on Thursday, however, she expected a larger opening day turnout, before calling out to another longtime fan, 49-year-old Glenn Reynolds, jokingly chastising him for nearly being late.

The Delmarva Shorebirds edged the Hagerstown Suns 4-3 on Thursday night in the teams' South Atlantic League season opener. The Shorebirds broke a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the eighth inning against Suns reliever Brian Rauh. With two outs and the bases empty, Joel Hutter hit his second triple of the game and scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch. Delmarva went up 2-0 in the second against Suns starter Dixon Anderson. Hutter hit an RBI triple and scored on a sacrifice fly by Roderick Bernadina.

For one day, Dixon Anderson has a chance to feel like Stephen Strasburg. “That would be awesome,” the right-handed pitcher said. Like Strasburg, Anderson will be the opening-day starter for a Washington Nationals team, albeit the Hagerstown Suns, the Single-A affiliate in the South Atlantic League. So, it's not at Nationals Park against the Miami Marlins. It's in Purdue Stadium Thursday at 7:05 p.m. against the Delmarva Shorebirds in Salisbury, Md. And no one will be expecting a cool seven shutout innings on 80 pitches.
