Steven Souza knows how to make an entrance. The Hagerstown outfielder came up with his second three-hit game since coming off the disabled list to lead the Suns to an 8-6 victory and a three-game sweep of Hickory on Wednesday. Souza is 6-for-10 - including two home runs and seven RBIs - since being activated Tuesday after being placed on the disabled list after suffering a shoulder impingement, caused from making two diving catches against Augusta on May 6. It still pales in comparison to Souza's April 25 debut with the Suns when he had four hits and nine RBIs to ignite a 24-2 victory over Rome.
