April’s power brought a flowering May for the Hagerstown Suns this season. The Suns were the class of the South Atlantic League over the first two months of the season. Then came June, all too soon, along with a swoon. The Suns were 32-20 and holding a 2 1/2-game lead over Greensboro in the South Atlantic League’s Northern Division on June 1. From there, it all went south. Hagerstown is 6-10 with a .280 team batting average and 4.20 team ERA for the month entering Saturday’s game with Delmarva.

Kevin Keyes came through for the Hagerstown Suns on Saturday, but it wasn’t without a catch. Or a lot of hard work, either. The Suns outfielder hit two home runs — including a key three-run shot in the fourth inning — to lift Hagerstown to a 7-3 victory over Delmarva before 3,499 fans at Municipal Stadium. Keyes’ three hits and four RBIs were big, but everything he did before connecting for his hits set the stage. “I have been working hard on my swing and it really felt great today,” Keyes said.

With one swing of the bat and one raise of his arm, Randolph Oduber got it all. Oduber connected on a walk-off single with the bases loaded in the 10th inning to lift the Hagerstown Suns to a much-needed 2-1 victory over Delmarva on Friday before 2,832 fans at Municipal Stadium. The outfielder drove a liner through the hole at short to score Blake Kelso from third. He instantly threw his arm in the air. It was a celebration. It was redemption. And it was a sigh of relief for Oduber and the Suns in one swift instance.

The Hagerstown Suns return home to begin a homestand against Delmarva tonight, hoping to regain their form to get back atop the South Atlantic League Northern Division. The Suns dropped a costly pair of games to Lakewood on Wednesday to fall one-half game behind Hickory and Greensboro. Hickory (37-27) and Greensboro (38-28) are in a virtual tie for first place. The first half concludes Sunday. Hagerstown (37-28) first dropped a 3-2 decision in 12 innings in a game that was suspended in the 11th inning on Tuesday and continued Wednesday.

This time, the Hagerstown Suns were possessed instead of being possessive. The Suns have made a habit of casting a spell on opponents in tight situations. On Thursday, they were the ones put in a trance. “When you don’t take advantage of opportunities, sometimes they come back to haunt,” surmised Suns manager Brian Daubach. Hagerstown suffered through a Shorebirds spell as the offense went cold after the third inning and the pitching became erratic shortly after in a 6-3 loss before a quenched Thirsty Thursday crowd of 2,611 at Muncipal Stadium.
