bobp@herald-mail.com It was a good thing for the Hagerstown Suns that this Olsen didn't have a twin. One Scott Olsen was more than enough for the Suns to handle. Olsen wasn't in a cloning mood though, going about his business with six innings of shutout pitching with 10 strikeouts Saturday as the Greensboro Bats scratched out a 2-1 win that knocked Hagerstown further back in the Wild Card chase. The left-hander was dominant, only allowing one hit - the only hit the Suns managed for the game - while walking three.

bobp@herald-mail.com If anything, the Greensboro Bats had indigestion after Thursday night's game at Municipal Stadium. The main course was the Derin McMain's blue plate special - three doubles and eight ribs. For the second straight night, Hagerstown made it tough for Greensboro to swallow as Clay Hensley rode the support of McMains, the Suns third baseman who went 4-for-6, including three doubles and a single to drive in eight runs in a 14-2 rout. "We were able to load the bases with the same guy coming up each time," Suns manager Mike Ramsey said.

The Hagerstown Suns might have had a chance on Saturday if the game had judged at Madison Square Garden. They didn't mount much of a late attack. There was very little punch. And they seemed to be on the defensive. In New York, that would have scored Hagerstown at least a draw. But instead, the Suns seemed to cover up in the corner, allowing the Greensboro Bats to score five unanswered runs - including the game-winner without the benefit of a hit in the 10th inning - in a 5-0 loss at Muncipal Stadium.

bobp@herald-mail.com Kevin Alexander says he gets lucky. He just happens to be in the right place at the right time when the Hagerstown Suns need him the most. Saturday was one of those times. Alexander stroked a one-out single to left off reliever Wes Cooksey to score Branden Florence with the game-winning run in the 11th inning as the Suns salvaged a 5-4 win over the Greensboro Bats. Alexander, who came the to Suns in late April, has created a role for himself in Hagerstown's lineup because of his ability to make things happen.

But the Suns play baseball and no matter how the advance billing looks, everything changes once they take the field - beginning tonight at 7 on the road against the Greensboro Bats in the opening night of the 100th year of the South Atlantic League.

Closer preserves Suns win By BOB PARASILITI bobp@herald-mail.com The pressure was on Jackson Markert and was building like a shaken can of soda sitting in the sun. The Hagerstown Suns closer had worked himself in to a bases-loaded situation with none out in the ninth while trying to protect a two-run lead.
