SALISBURY, Md. - When things go bad, no one can control what happens. Hagerstown Suns pitcher Rafael Cova allowed only one hit in 2 2/3 innings, but coughed up five runs as he allowed three walks, hit two batters and threw four wild pitches on the way to an 8-7 loss to Delmarva on Wednesday night. The loss dropped the Suns (3-10) further into the cellar in the North Division of the South Atlantic League. Cova hit Delmarva's leadoff batter and proceeded to issue two walks and throw two wild pitches as the Shorebirds took a 4-1 lead in the opening inning.

SALISBURY, Md. - The Hagerstown Suns took everything they were given Thursday to complete a two-game sweep of Delmarva. The Suns used walks, an error and a sacrifice fly to manufacture three runs in a 4-1 victory. Hagerstown (7-7, 55-30) used three first-inning walks off starter Ricky Casteel and parlayed them into a quick 2-0 lead to give Scott Cassidy all the support he needed. Cassidy (9-4) allowed three hits and three walks through six innings while striking out nine, including the final four batters he faced.

Usually, the Hagerstown Suns lean on theĀ  offense late in games. On Friday, the pitching gave the bats a rest. Suns pitching retired the last 14 players it faced to nail down a 5-1 victory over Delmarva, making Cutter Dykstra's first-inning home run stand up as the game-winning hit. Starter Wilkin Estevez and relievers Ben Hawkins and Alex Kreis combined for 4 2/3 hitless innings to end the two-hit victory. The victory keeps the Suns (72-50, 30-23) on top in the South Atlantic League Northern Division's second-half standings.

It was a game that defied description. In fact, the only words that could have been used were all four-lettered and probably unable to be printed here. But Delmarva left the Hagerstown Suns talking - probably muttering or babbling - to themselves after unloading a 20-6 shellacking on a soggy Thirsty Thursday crowd at Municipal Stadium. It was probably a good thing they were serving inexpensive beer. Some senses needed to be dulled after this one. The Shorebirds came out swinging after a 55-minute rain delay and didn't stop for the next three hours to hand the Suns (3-11)

Birds fly the coop with split vs. Suns By BOB PARASILITI bobp@herald-mail.com Today Lakewood BlueClaws Robinson Tejada (0-1, 4.66) at Hagerstown Suns John Thomas (0-1, 11.37) Time: 7 Radio: WHAG 1410 Elvis didn't leave the building fast enough for the Hagerstown Suns' tastes. Delmarva's starting pitcher, Elvis Montilla, didn't wear sequins or eat fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, but he did find a way to leave the Suns all shook up. Montilla recovered from a slow start and rode the benefits of two big Delmarva innings on Thursday to shut down Hagerstown on four hits in the Shorebirds' 10-1 rout to secure a split of the two teams four-game, home-and-home series.

Delmarva employed the Noah's Ark method to finally knock off the Hagerstown Suns. The Shorebirds did everything in twos. Delmarva used three-hit nights by Jason Esposito and Mychal Givens, along with Nick Delmonico's three-run homer, to grab a 9-1 victory over the Suns on Saturday before 1,712 fans at Municipal Stadium. The Shorebirds paired key triples, singles and homers to construct a three-run third and a four-run seventh inning to end the Suns' six-game winning streak.

bobp@herald-mail.com Delmarva marched past the Hagerstown Suns on Saturday. It was left, left, left and it knocked the Suns off stride. That is left, as in left-handed starter Adam Loewen, left as in left-handed reliever Trevor Caughey and then left as in Hagerstown left its offense in the clubhouse, allowing the Shorebirds to walk off with a 4-0 victory before 2,788 fans at Municipal Stadium. The method was a common one. Hagerstown (10-19, 38-58), which has lost five straight, continued to show an inability to hit left-handed pitching while Delmarva chipped away to build a lead.

The Hagerstown Suns have lost sight of one of baseball's basic rules. "We are struggling to get 27 outs," said Suns manager Tommy Herr. And that has been the big picture of a whole game. There have been cases recently where the Suns have had problems getting three outs to end an inning. The problem arose again on Friday. Hagerstown's bullpen was taxed again, struggling through the final four innings in what became an 8-3 loss to Delmarva before 2,777 Nora Roberts enthusiasts at Municipal Stadium.

bobp@herald-mail.com It was getting to the point where Hagerstown Suns manager Mike Ramsey couldn't decide to shade his eyes or cover his ears. It was one of those nights for the Suns. Inning by inning, Delmarva scored single run after single run - giving that feeling of a dripping faucet in the middle of the night. The Shorebirds pecked away - run, run, run - in five different innings while Hagerstown's offense couldn't find a hit to plug up Delmarva in a 5-1 loss, the Suns' fourth straight.
