The Hagerstown Suns will play the usual suspects in 1999.

But, for the first time in three years, Hagerstown will play eight games - two four-game home-and-home series - with all four teams in the Southern Division.

The end result was Macon taking advantage of a three-run first inning Monday at Municipal Stadium in a 6-1 victory over the Suns, who took advantage of very little. "It was a tough game.

Macon Braves manager Brian Snitker might have been better off starting a reliever Wednesday night against the Hagerstown Suns. The Macon bullpen held Hagerstown hitless through the last five innings, allowing just two base runners, while the Suns pitching staff was struggling. But the nine runs Hagerstown scored against Braves starter Joey Nation (6-11) was enough for a 9-6 South Atlantic League win before 1,352 fans at Municipal Stadium. Delmarva's 2-1 win over Columbus, however, keeps the Suns (75-55)

Baseball fans - and sportswriters - can be a superficial lot. It's a follow-the-ball mentality. Offense wins games. What's the final score, please. On Monday, the Hagerstown Suns came from behind, using a four-run eighth inning, to take a 4-2 win over Augusta. While Matt Logan's single drove in the winning run and took all the thunder, it was his and catcher Mike Kremblas' glovework put that the Suns fans - and writer - in a position just to look at the surface of the game.
