Brandon Miller had a surge of power on Tuesday. So did the Hagerstown Suns. Miller, Hagerstown's right fielder, hit a grand slam in the seventh inning to complete the Suns' three home run night, which paved the way to a runaway 11-2 win over the Lakewood BlueClaws before 512 fans at Municipal Stadium. It was a direct turnaround for the Suns (7-6), who struggled to get five hits in Monday's 5-1 loss and showed little diversity in the offense. On Tuesday, they rolled out the power with all three of the team's heaviest hitters connecting.

Sometimes when the margin for error is razor thin, there's no way to avoid being cut. On Monday, the Hagerstown Suns were sharp. The Lakewood BlueClaws were just sharper. Lakewood took advantage of two Hagerstown mistakes in the late innings to break a 1-1 tie and pull away to a 5-1 victory on Monday before a sparse crowd at Municipal Stadium. The Suns played well, but it wasn't crisp enough to win. The difference was a pitch that missed location and an errant throw, both of which took away the chances for Hagerstown to pull out a win in the ninth.
