koelble@herald-mail.com There is a plague working through the Hagerstown Suns. It is called defense. For the third straight game, errors were critical as the Suns lost to Rome 5-3 Monday in the opener of an eight-game homestand at Municipal Stadium. One specific error - a Bill Buckner-type miscue by first baseman Travis Ishikawa - prolonged Rome's third inning to set the stage for Maryland native Steve Pyzik to launch a two-run double for a 3-0 lead. Unearned runs were prevalent during Sunday's doubleheader in Hickory and manager Mike Ramsey had the Suns out on the field at 1:30 p.m., Monday for extra work.

"In the Company of the Courtesan" is a brilliantly descriptive novel by Sarah Dunant. Ravaging despair, unholy lust, trifling deceit and compelling revenge brood within the walls of Rome during the Renaissance era. Fiammetta Bianchini, a courtesan, and Bucino, her dwarf companion, are caught in the conquest of Rome in 1527. This novel has an amazing description of the sacking of the city. The pair migrate to Venice to re-establish themselves. The loyalty between the dwarf and the lady is so great, that it would be a pity to destroy such a strong friendship.

ROME, Ga. - The Hagerstown Suns realized that when in Rome, do as the Braves do. They just couldn't keep it up. The Suns battle back from a 5-0 deficit after one inning by scoring five runs of their own in the third to tie the game.

Rome broke a 6-6 tie in the fourth on a bases-loaded, double play grounder by Jason Heyward and RBI double by Frederick Freeman.

The Hagerstown Suns seldom wonder when Wander Ramos is in the lineup. They don't have to. The outfielder has a habit of coming through. Ramos returned from the disabled list on Saturday and promptly delivered a two-run double in Hagerstown's five-run first inning to lead the Suns to a 7-4 win over Rome. The win kept the Suns (52-38, 14-9) a half-game behind Hickory in the South Atlantic League Northern Division second-half standings. Hagerstown set the tone for the game by rallying for all five first-inning runs after its first two hitters recorded outs against Rome starter Wes Parsons (3-5)

The Hagerstown Suns showed the Rome Braves that walks — and good base running — can be lethal. The Suns used a pair of leadoff walks and some heads-up navigating of the bases on Friday to collect a 2-0 victory. Hagerstown (2-0) managed only four hits against a trio of Braves pitchers, but took advantage of six walks to get the job done. Bryce Harper, the Washington Nationals’ and baseball’s top selection in the 2010 draft, went 0-for-3, but drew a leadoff walk in the eighth inning, leading to the Suns’ insurance run. Rome pitchers Caleb Brewer and Blaine Sims held the Suns hitless for 6 2/3 innings.

If Cameron Selik was a boxer, he would be considered a counter puncher. He’d probably fire jabs and keep his distance. He’d win on points, probably not knockouts. But Selik is a starting pitcher for the Hagerstown Suns. He is in a different kind of battle, but he follows similar principles. The right-hander will be Hagerstown’s opening-day starter today at 7 p.m. when the Suns start the 2011 season on the road against the Rome (Ga.) Braves. His specialty is making teams hit the ball.
