The Greensboro Grasshoppers tried to slide one past Khayyan Norfork. But in the end, Hagerstown's designated hitter was the one who slid by the Grasshoppers. Norfork keyed the Suns' three-run ninth inning with a clutch two-run single and then scored the winning run on Wander Ramos' improvised safety squeeze bunt to give Hagerstown an almost improbable 5-4 win on Tuesday at Municipal Stadium. For the Suns (26-15), it was a game of few chances and even fewer clutch hits, but they got them when needed to pull out yet another victory.

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.
