The Hagerstown Suns have relied on defense to win many games this season. But that only works when the ball stays in the park. The Hickory Crawdads seem to have a habit of keeping it out of the Suns' reach. The Crawdads hit four home runs - resulting in their first eight runs - and rode the advantage to an 11-7 victory over Hagerstown on Wednesday at Municipal Stadium. Hickory hit all the homers off Suns starter Ian Dickson (0-1) to take an 8-1 lead en route to its second win in the crucial three-game series.

They come down to the last at-bat,” said Suns manager Tripp Keister.

Taylor Jordan got the last chuckle in a night of belly laughs for the Hagerstown Suns. Hagerstown’s starting pitcher was the only person to top the best night of Bryce Harper’s young professional career. Jordan carried a perfect game into the fifth inning on Friday to upstage a sparkling offensive display by the Suns — led by Harper’s three-hit, six-RBI night — as Hagerstown unloaded a 17-1 shellacking on the Hickory Crawdads. “He was outstanding tonight. It was hard to do tonight with the long innings we had,” said Suns manager Brian Daubach.

When Bryce Harper hits, and hits well, he hits hard. That goes the same for baseballs and outfield fences. Harper thrilled and scared Hagerstown Suns fans and the Washington Nationals on Thursday. In the first inning, Harper hit his first home run at Municipal Stadium in the opener of a doubleheader sweep by the Hickory Crawdads. In the fourth inning, the Nationals’ top prospect went head first into the right-field fence trying to make a running catch. In both cases, the results were more than satisfactory.
