The Greenville Drive operated like assassins on Wednesday. The Drive worked silently, quietly scoring three runs in the second inning without benefit of a hit en route to a 4-1 victory over the Hagerstown Suns in a lunchtime matinee. Hagerstown starter and South Atlantic League All-Star Marcos Frias experienced problems with his control and was lifted after three innings, allowing all four Greenville runs. Frias (5-3) went through a nightmare in the second inning when he walked Kade Keowen and Mitch Dening and followed by hitting Oscar Tejeda and Jonathan Hee with pitches to produce the first run. Peter Hissey's grounder and a wild pitch gave the Drive a 3-0 lead.

GREENVILLE, S.C. - Greenville roughed up Hagerstown starter Zac Clements for six runs in the fourth inning as the Drive beat the Suns for the second straight night Tuesday, 8-3. The first seven hitters Clements (0-1) faced in the fourth reached base - three on run-scoring hits, two by walk, one hit by a pitch and the last on an infield error. Hagerstown's Jose Castro had an RBI single in both the sixth and seventh inning and Nick Evans added a run-scoring single as the Suns cut the deficit in half.

GREENVILLE, S.C. - The Hagerstown Suns are losing some of their drive by losing to the Drive. Greenville starter Michael Bowden harnessed the Suns' offense by allowing one run on three hits over five innings Wednesday to pace the Drive to a 3-2 victory. The loss ended a 2-6 Southern road trip for the Suns. The loss also wasted a strong start by Hagerstown's Bobby Parnell, who allowed three runs on seven hits while striking out eight over seven innings. After the Suns took a 1-0 lead in the first on a Nick Evans single, Greenville scored single runs in the first, fourth and fifth for a 3-1 lead.

The Greenville Drive hit three home runs, including a go-ahead grand slam in the top of the fifth inning, to defeat the Hagerstown Suns 8-5 at Municipal Stadium in the South Atlantic League on Thursday.

The Suns took the lead in the third on one swing of the bat when Tyler Moore's three-run shot made it 3-2. But Greenville reclaimed the lead in the fifth inning against Hagerstown starting pitcher Patrick Arnold, who entered the inning having retired nine of the previous 12 batters he faced.

Brandon Jacobs and Sean Coyle drove in three runs each on Saturday to lead Greenville to an 8-4 sun-baked victory over the Hagerstown Suns. Jacobs and Coyle each hit two-run home runs as the Drive scored eight unanswered runs to knock off Hagerstown (55-43, 15-13). Saturday's game was played in the 100-degree conditions after being forced to be moved to the afternoon. A light standard collapsed at Municipal Stadium during Friday's storm. The Suns took a 1-0 lead in the first as Blake Kelso led off with a single against Greenville starter Kyle Stroup and scored on Adrian Sanchez's double.

Greenville scored seven runs in the first two innings and snapped Hagerstown's five-game winning streak as the Drive shut out the Suns 8-0 on Saturday night. A third-strike wild pitch by Suns starter Pedro Encarnacion and two errors by the Suns (40-30, 2-1) led to three Greenville runs in the first inning. Drew Turocy drove a two-run double to left for the key hit. Encarnacion got the first two outs in the second inning, then gave up four straight hits - singles by Mookie Betts, Jose Vinicio and David Chester, and Mario Martinez's grand slam to left for the 7-0 lead.

The early bird may catch the worm, but scoring late wins ball games. The Hagerstown Suns scored early and often Wednesday. The Suns scored at least one run in four straight innings and starter Bobby Hansen was on cruise control with a 9-3 advantage after five innings. But Greenville put together a four-inning splurge of its own, smacking Hagerstown’s bullpen around for 10 unanswered runs to fuel a comeback for a 14-12 victory to stun the Suns and the crowd of 731 at Municipal Stadium.

The Hagerstown Suns beat the odds to get in position to defeat Greenville on Saturday. But the odds got even. The Suns missed on prime opportunities in the 10th and 11th innings, leaving the door open for Henry Ramos to hit a two-out RBI single to center to lift the Drive to a 4-3 win in the 12th for a split of the four-game series. Hagerstown (34-22) came back from a 3-0 deficit in the eighth inning on David Freitas’ three-run home run, but couldn’t muster another rally in the bottom of the 12th to pull the game out. “We ran into a starting pitcher who had his ‘A’ game tonight,” said Suns manager Brian Daubach.

Matt Grace maximized his potential by minimizing his situation. It was a case of shrinking a big inning and reducing little problems to nothing. The Hagerstown starting pitcher battled through an uneasy first inning where he allowed two runs and held Greenville at bay as the Suns’ offense piled on 11 hits on Saturday en route to an 11-5 win over the Drive at Municipal Stadium. Greenville used a walk and four consecutive singles to score two runs in the first inning. Grace worked out of the inning and set sail for a 6 1/3-inning performance boosted by nine unanswered runs by the Suns.
