The game changed with one swing of the bat for the Hagerstown Suns on Friday. The situation didn't though, although it got a little bit tougher. Lakewood scored nine runs in the final three innings to erase a 5-2 deficit to grab an untimely 11-5 victory over the Suns before 1,734 fans at Municipal Stadium, which seriously put a crimp in Hagerstown's quest for the South Atlantic League Northern Division first-half title. Mitch Walding tied the game with a three-run home run in the seventh before Lakewood added three runs in the eighth and ninth innings to turn the outcome into a blowout.

LAKEWOOD, N.J. - The Hagerstown Suns dropped to 2-4 on their current road trip as Lakewood took advantage of a walk and an error in a three-run seventh inning to beat the Suns 6-4 on Saturday. The Suns tried to rally, getting a pair of runs in the top of the eighth on Leivi Ventura's seventh homer of the season, a two-run shot. But the Suns were retired in order in the ninth. Lakewood starter Maximino De La Cruz (3-1) struck out seven Suns in seven innings of work. Ventura and Sanchez each had two hits for Hagerstown (17-23)

LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Two wrongs didn't make a right for the Hagerstown Suns on Friday. Hagerstown allowed eight walks and committed two costly errors while dropping a 10-2 decision to Lakewood for a split of their four-game series. Lakewood capitalized on numerous bases-loaded situations to score its final nine runs. Meanwhile, Hagerstown (27-15) squandered prime scoring situations in each of the first four innings to fall behind. Lakewood moved to a 4-0 lead against hagerstown starter Blake Eager when Sam Orr hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly and Jason Jaramillo added a two-run double in the third.

LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Three consecutive walks in the second inning led to three Lakewood runs, and three BlueClaws pitchers held Hagerstown to four hits as the Suns dropped a 5-2 decision on Sunday. Hagerstown starter Juan Serrato (4-2) retired the first four batters he faced, but walks to Bryan Hansen, Jose Cortez and Omar Bramasco came back to bite him when the bottom two hitters in Lakewood's lineup - Nick Italiano and Chris Klemm - hit RBI singles. Javon Moran's RBI fielder's choice scored a third.

LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Carlos Monasterios and Michael Dubee held Hagerstown to a single hit, while Lakewood got four of its six hits in a three-run fifth inning to lead the BlueClaws to a 5-1 win over the Suns on Tuesday. The Suns scored a run in the first without a hit. Alex Nunez walked, took second on a balk, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on Chris Marrero's groundout. Lakewood got the run back in the bottom of the inning as Quintin Berry doubled and moved around on a sacrifice bunt and sacrifice fly. Joe Napoli got the Suns' only hit leading off the second, but he was quickly erased trying to steal second.

At only 17 years of age, Hagerstown Suns pitcher Deolis Guerra is a minor. But by baseball statutes, the Venezuelan was major Sunday night. Guerra scattered four hits through 6 1/3 innings - his longest outing of the season - to silence Lakewood and guide the Suns to an 8-1 victory before a crowd of 4,188 at Municipal Stadium. Guerra, who dropped a pair of two-inning decisions to Lakewood in May to start his career, struck out six and walked two. "The first couple of times out, he was just getting his feet wet in professional baseball," said Suns manager Frank Cacciatore.

Michael Burgess has leadership where he'd like -- home runs -- and where he'd like not to -- strikeouts -- when it comes to offensive categories for the Hagerstown Suns. On Monday night at Municipal Stadium, Burgess had one of each and it was the home run that outweighed the other as the Suns downed Lakewood 6-2 in the opener of a three-game series. Burgess launched his fourth four-bagger of the year deep over the right-field wall in the bottom of the first inning that boosted Hagerstown (8-10)

Baseball is a game of give and take. Sometimes you give the beating. The other times you take it. The Hagerstown Suns gave it on Monday and took it on Tuesday. Lakewood returned all of the favors the Suns enjoyed on Monday by jumping out to an early lead from the first batter and grinding out a 10-3 victory. "We jumped on them early (Monday) and they jumped on us early today," Suns manager Darnell Coles said. "We did it to them yesterday and they did it to us today.

Starting on Friday, the Hagerstown Suns are in Phase Two of the season. Even with four games remaining in the regular season, Friday is the beginning of the postseason. But before they moved ahead, the Suns took care of business on Thursday. Stephen Perez drove in five runs and Hagerstown scored 12 runs in its final three innings at bat for a 14-1 rout of Lakewood to complete the home half of the 2013 regular season. The next time the Suns see Municipal Stadium, it will be next Friday in the second game of the Northern Division best-of-3 playoffs.

There is some infinite wisdom for why Abner Doubleday gave each team 27 outs per game when he invented baseball. That's because every one of them is precious. The Hagerstown Suns realized that Tuesday. The only problem was they wasted the first 15 and made the most of the last 12. In this case, the majority won. The Lakewood BlueClaws scored five times in the first four innings with the help of four Suns errors and a home run by Art Charles, then held on as Hagerstown rallied but fell short in a 6-5 decision.

The Hagerstown Suns have a habit of making something out of nothing. What was starting to look like a harmless seventh inning on Thursday turned into a two-out, five-run rally to lift the Suns to an 8-3 win over Lakewood. Two hits, two errors and a wild pitch helped Hagerstown (76-51, 38-22) break a 3-3 tie and give the Suns their 10th win in the last 12 games. The Suns moved to a 1 1/2-game lead in the South Atlantic League Northern Division second-half race. West Virginia dropped a 5-4 decision to Charleston on Thursday.

When the Hagerstown Suns can do all the little things, they are something special. When they can't, they are rather ordinary. It was an ordinary Wednesday at Municipal Stadium. Lakewood starter Jeb Stefan set the tone with six innings of one-hit pitching as the BlueClaws did all the things the Suns are normally known for doing to pull out a 6-1 victory to end a seven-game losing streak before 915 fans in rainy conditions. “That's baseball,” said Suns manager Tripp Keister.

The Suns (61-41, 19-14) had a four-game winning streak snapped and fell into a first-place tie with Hickory atop the Northern Division, with the BlueClaws (44-58, 18-15) a game back. Lakewood took a 1-0 lead in the first inning off Hagerstown starter Bobby Hansen Jr. (2-2), who walked Tim Carver and Alejandro Villalobos to start the game.

The Hagerstown Suns are nothing if not dramatic. For the third straight night, the Suns waited until the last minute to score to complete a final charge to victory, this time a 5-4 win on Friday over Lexington. Hagerstown scored in the eighth inning on Wednesday and Thursday to stop the Legends. Ironically, the Suns found themselves on the other end while losing four of five games against Lakewood earlier in the week. On Friday, Steven Souza Jr. doubled in with two outs in the ninth to score Billy Burns from first with the winning run. Burns reached on a single after a hit by Brian Goodwin.
