While Tuesday may have been on the chilly side, the Hagerstown Community College baseball team's bats managed to warm up for at least part of the afternoon. The Hawks bounced back from a 10-2 loss in the opener by pounding out an 11-4 victory in the nightcap to gain a split of a Maryland JuCo Conference doubleheader with the College of Southern Maryland. “It was two completely different games,” HCC coach Scott Jennings said. “It was like night and day for us. In the first game, they just outplayed us. They had better hitting, better pitching and better defense.

EASTLAKE, Ohio - P.J. Hiser had been waiting for a long time to play. He proved it Tuesday. The South Hagerstown graduate hit a three-run home run in the opener and drove in the tying run in the nightcap to lead Lake County to a 6-2, 10-1 doubleheader sweep of the Hagerstown Suns. Hiser, who had been on the disabled list for nearly a month until last Friday, hit his three-run homer in the first as the Captains scored all six of its runs. In the nightcap, Hiser's RBI single in the first tied the game at 1-1 and started a five-run rally for the Captains.

After committing seven errors in a 7-3 loss to Greensville, the Hagerstown Suns capitalized on a pair of Drive miscues to win the nightcap 3-2 in a doubleheader split Monday night at Municipal Stadium. Each game lasted seven innings. In the nightcap, the Suns took a 1-0 lead in the second inning as Jhonatan Solano scored from third on a fielding error. Another Greenville error gave the Suns an extra out in the third, and they capitalized. Joe Napoli's two-out, two-run double made it a 3-0 game.

Tony Peters and Jesse Zepeda became Hagerstown's resident conservationalists on Saturday. Both came up so big by trying to do so little. Peters clubbed a two-run homer in the opener and Zepeda came back with a grand slam in the six-run second inning of the nightcap to propel the Hagerstown Suns to a 2-1 and 8-4 doubleheader sweep of the Charleston Alley Cats before 3,236 fans at Municipal Stadium. Pitching should have headed the show for the Suns with their two aces - John Sneed and Clayton Andrews - working the twinbill.

Dan Lyons and Bill Rhinehart each have a little Hollywood in them. Lyons might be a little more Tinseltown than Rhinehart, but even that is debatable. Lyons had a Robert Redford moment with a key double in the fifth inning of Tuesday's first game to give the Hagerstown Suns the lead in a 5-2 victory over Lakewood at Municipal Stadium. Rhinehart just about topped it, though, in the nightcap by hitting a three-run homer to center to seal a four-run seventh and give Hagerstown a 4-3 win in the nightcap.

bobp@herald-mail.com If Hagerstown Suns read the papers, they would have been forewarned. Manger Mike Ramsey was impressed with the Suns' style of play, but he admitted it wasn't perfect. "They feel like they can come back and win every game ... That's great, but there's going to be times that it won't work. " One, in fact two, of those times came on Sunday. Hagerstown fell behind early and mounted comebacks late - the usual Suns M.O. - but this time it fell short in the final inning.

The Greensboro Grasshoppers left the Hagerstown Suns in their shadow yet again. Since May 10, the first-place Grasshoppers have led the second-place Suns by six games in the South Atlantic League's Northern Division. They entered Tuesday's doubleheader in that situation. They left it that way, too. Greensboro exploded for eight runs in the first two innings of the nightcap and rode the early outburst to an 8-4 victory. It came just after the Suns rallied for a 5-4 victory in 10 innings in the opener, the completion of Monday's suspended game.

The Hagerstown Suns would rather be in Oz right now. They aren’t yet sure if there is no place like home. So far, following the yellow brick road has been successful. Still, the Suns will be tapping the ruby spikes three times and returning to Municipal Stadium to kick off the home portion of the 2011 schedule against the Lakewood BlueClaws today at 6:35 p.m. It’s not that the Suns don’t want to come home — the team has only spent three days in town so far and hasn’t played here yet — but there aren’t many times a team posts a 6-2 record while on the road.
