Nick Evans almost made it sound easy. "I was just looking for a good pitch to hit with two strikes and put a good swing on it," the Hagerstown Suns first baseman said. "That's about all I can do. " This isn't the Army, but being all he could be was more than enough for the Suns. In fact, Hagerstown went along for the ride. Evans crushed two home runs en route to three hits and three RBI Wednesday to help give Jonathan Niese and a trio of Hagerstown relievers all the support they needed for an enjoyable 8-1 win over Delmarva in a game started after a one-hour, 20-minute rain delay.

Nick Evans is a true believer in the Buddy System. After all, baseball is more fun when you play with your friends. Evans doesn't mind sharing - he'll hit and his teammates can run all they want. That was pretty much the case in the nightcap of Thursday's doubleheader with West Virginia. The Hagerstown Suns got on base and Evans drove them in for three RBI in a 6-4 victory that completed a sweep of the Power. The Suns won the opener 1-0 in the completion of April 21's suspended game.

Nick Evans is finding success by realizing the rules of personal physics. Opposites don't necessarily attract, but they don't have to detract either. The Hagerstown Suns first baseman has enjoyed an upswing in his season since he began feeling at ease with two totally opposite emotions. Being aggressive and being selective. Taking up yoga would be a little easier. "I spent a lot of time getting myself out," Evans said. "I was swinging at bad pitches and taking myself out of my at-bats.

Legends don't happen by accident. And yet, there is no real plan to becoming immortal, either. Still, you have to wonder how a legend gets his start. Do you apply for the gig? If so, where? I mean, how big was Paul Bunyan before he got the blue ox? The same might be said about Tom Cruise before he met Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes, though. Did Babe Ruth actually eat all those hot dogs at once or is 714 his Hormel record instead of his homer mark? It seems legends are built off two factors.

When it came down to it, Nick Evans stuck with the routine. The Hagerstown Suns first baseman did everything he normally does when he came to hit in the ninth inning. That was the easy part, because the Suns were doing the same things they seem to do every game. Evans clubbed a 2-1 pitch over the right-field fence for a one-out grand slam Tuesday to bring Hagerstown back from the dead and into a 6-6 tie with Lake County. The Suns finished the five-run rally when Leivi Ventura scored from second on a wild pitch and catcher Omar Casillas' throwing error into right field to steal a 7-6 victory before 2,733 fans in an Education Day matinee at Municipal Stadium.
