The Suns gave Grasshoppers starting pitcher Mason Hope a rude welcome to Hagerstown on Monday evening, scoring six runs in the first inning of a 12-3 victory over Greensboro in the first game of a three-game South Atlantic League series at Municipal Stadium. Tony Renda led off with a single and Shawn Pleffner and Wander Ramos drew one-out walks to load the bases. Brandon Miller reached on third baseman Matt Juengel's fielding error, scoring Renda for a 1-0 lead. Will Piwnica-Worms followed with an RBI single to center to make it 2-0, Wes Schill hit a sacrifice fly for a 3-0 lead and Craig Manuel supplied the exclamation point with a two-out, three-run home run to right - his first of the year - to make it 6-0. The Suns (25-15)

The Greensboro Grasshoppers left the Hagerstown Suns in their shadow yet again. Since May 10, the first-place Grasshoppers have led the second-place Suns by six games in the South Atlantic League's Northern Division. They entered Tuesday's doubleheader in that situation. They left it that way, too. Greensboro exploded for eight runs in the first two innings of the nightcap and rode the early outburst to an 8-4 victory. It came just after the Suns rallied for a 5-4 victory in 10 innings in the opener, the completion of Monday's suspended game.

The Hagerstown Suns should have figured they were in trouble. The Suns should have got a clue when they started throwing the ball farther than Greensboro was hitting it. Hagerstown committed consecutive throwing errors on a pair of balls hit in the infield to open the door for a six-run fourth inning for Greensboro on Friday, leading to a 7-2 loss. After allowing leadoff singles to Aaron Senne and Ryan Rieger, Hagerstown's starting pitcher Bobby Hansen Jr. fired Austin Nola's sacrifice bunt and Terrence Dayleg's single to the mound down the right-field line to start an improbable rally.

The Hagerstown Suns were forced to find out if champagne travels well on Thursday. Greensboro changed any plans the Suns had of celebrating the South Atlantic League's Northern Division second-half title with a 12-2 decision. The loss, combined with second-place Hickory's victory, leaves the Suns (80-53, 38-26) up by two games with four games to play. The Grasshoppers, the North's first-half champs, smacked Suns pitching around, scoring in six of eight innings. Josh Adams drove in three runs and Brent Keys and Matt Smith had three hits each to lead Greensboro.

Bryce Ortega hasn't been known as much of a power hitter. Singles and getting on base have been his forte. Until Tuesday. Ortega collected three hits - including his first home run of the season - and drove in four runs as the Hagerstown Suns unloaded an 8-0 pasting on Greensboro. Ortega also added a two-run triple and doubled and scored to complete three-quarters of a hitting cycle. With the win, the Suns (80-51, 38-24) reduced their magic number to win the South Atlantic League Northern Division's second-half title to three.

The Hagerstown Suns have become very fashionable in victory. They have a habit of showing up late. The Suns continued their trend of scoring in the last three innings on Wednesday, this time coming back from a 3-0 deficit to pull out a 4-3 victory over Greensboro. It was Hagerstown's seventh straight victory and put the Suns (56-33, 14-6) in a tie with Hickory for first place in the South Atlantic League Northern Division's second-half standings. But it didn't happen without heroics.

The Greensboro Grasshoppers restarted that notion of baseball being a game of inches on Tuesday. And they used leadoff hitter Ryan Goetz as the measuring stick. Goetz hit a three-run home run that bounced off the top and over the right-field wall to give Greensboro all the offense it needed for a 4-2 victory over the Hagerstown Suns. The loss knocked the Suns (30-21) to 6 1/2 games behind the South Atlantic League Northern Division-leading Grasshoppers. Hagerstown and Greensboro play for the last time in the first half today at 10:35 a.m. The Suns had a chance to tie the game in the ninth, with the tying run at the plate with one out, but failed.

The Hagerstown Suns got Greensboro's attention on Monday. They are serious about challenging the first-place Grasshoppers for the South Atlantic League Northern Division's first-half title. The Suns used a six-run third inning - highlighted by Matt Skole's two-run home run - to set the tone, but needed a two-run single by Billy Burns in the ninth for a 9-7 victory over Greensboro and close to within 5 1/2 games of the lead. Hagerstown withstood the Grasshopper's six-run ninth, including Ryan Goetz's grand slam, to hold on for the win. The Suns (30-20)

Dejai made the Hagerstown Suns face the music on Friday. Greensboro starter Dejai Oliver - pronounced D.J. - took away all the Suns' rhythm with seven innings of five-hit pitching as the Grasshoppers tuned out Hagerstown 9-1 to start the final regular-season homestand at Municipal Stadium. The Suns got the early lead but couldn't keep it as they committed three errors to open the door for a pair of Greensboro rallies, hampering the efforts of pitcher Jake Johansen in his first Hagerstown start.

The Hagerstown Suns rallied from a 5-0 deficit with a five-run fourth inning capped by Will Piwnica-Worms' game-tying grand slam, then closed an 8-5 deficit to one run on Brandon Miller's home run in the eighth, but the Greensboro Grasshoppers held on for an 8-7 victory in Tuesday's South Atlantic League game.

Ryan Goetz smelled like champagne and sweat, a combination of both dripping from his bushy Fu Manchu mustache onto his dirt-stained uniform. Goetz was a mess. A happy mess. “Man, I'm tired,” Goetz said in the moments after the Greensboro Grasshoppers' on-field celebration of their series-clinching 7-5 victory over the Hagerstown Suns. Greensboro's gritty little leadoff hitter went 3-for-4 with three runs scored, helping the Hoppers win the South Atlantic League Northern Division series Friday night before 4,134 fans at raucous NewBridge Bank Park.
