The Suns (8-11), who committed four errors and gave up five unearned runs in an 8-7 loss to the RiverDogs (13-6) Wednesday, snapped a three-game losing streak and avoided the four-game sweep.

When it comes time for the Charleston (S.C.) Riverdogs to leave town, Shawn Riggans may get his own personal escort - the entire Hagerstown Suns' team.

By BRENDAN KIRBY Staff Writer Ace pitcher Matt White returned to the area Thursday and put in an appearance at Hagerstown's Municipal Stadium, where fans turned out by the thousands for "Matt White Night. " Hagerstown Suns officials had hoped to build a blockbuster four-game series with the Charleston (S.C.) RiverDogs around White, who was a star right-hander at Waynesboro High School.

The Hagerstown Suns found out there's a real good reason for keeping their game face on for an entire game. That is because when they decided to take it off early, the whole complexion began to look pretty ugly. The Suns dozed off in the ninth inning by allowing Charleston (S.C.) to score six runs in the final two innings. It gave what had been a laugher the feeling of being hit over the nose with a rolled-up newspaper as the Suns had enough to hold on for a 13-9 win over the RiverDogs at Municipal Stadium.

bobp@herald-mail.com The Hagerstown Suns had trouble with some big words on Monday. They were advantage, opportunity and fundamentals. Charleston had a little more success putting The Big Three into a winning vocabulary as the Riverdogs cashed in nearly every chance to notch a 6-3 win. The Suns had four prime scoring opportunities but were only able to take advantage of two of them. Meanwhile, the by-the-book plays that good defense is built on lacked the polish needed to stay in the game.
