koelble@herald-mail.com The welcome mat was rolled out for Kevin Alexander on Sunday and he made the most of his return to the lineup as the catalyst to a 5-3 Hagerstown Suns' victory over Lake County. Out for two months following a freakish hand injury suffered in pre-game drills, Alexander led a 12-hit attack as the Suns (12-9, South Atlantic League second half) opened a four-game series against the Captains (13-9, second half) and their ace lefty, Kevin Ramsey. Alexander singled to ignite a two-run third inning, stole second and scored on a single by Kevin Kelly, who eventually crossed the plate on a single by Brian Munhall.

Alexander's great in Suns' win Lexington Legends TBA at Hagerstown Suns Felix Diaz (1-3, 4.20) 7 p.m WHAG 1410 LAKEWOOD, N.J. - To say Kevin Alexander has started the season slowly for the Hagerstown Suns would be an understatement. Through 37 games the third baseman had fared well with his glove but had only five RBI. Finally, Monday against the Lakewood BlueClaws, Alexander's bat came to life. He hit his first home run of the season and double his RBI output for the season with five as Hagerstown continued its dominance over the expansion franchise, scoring a 10-2 victory in a South Atlantic League Northern Division game.

The Hagerstown Suns Fan Club had a number of tough decisions when it came to picking the winners of the annual team awards. The Suns have lived by - and died by - success by committee. It is proven by the club's selections for the top honors of the awards that were handed out this weekend. In many cases, the club chose to use the Noah's Ark method in their selections - giving the awards two by two. There were co-winners in three of the seven categories this season. Most Valuable Players - Outfielders Bryan Clark and Branden Florence.
