bobp@herald-mail.com For twice, the Hagerstown Suns made the best out of some good situations. Clutch hitting - especially with runners in scoring position - was becoming a phobia for the Suns this season ... until Saturday. Jake Wald turned a slug bunt into a game-winning single down the first-base line in the bottom of the seventh to give Hagerstown a 2-1 win over Savannah and a doubleheader sweep. It came on the heels of a pair of clutch run-scoring singles hit up the middle by Kevin Alexander and Aaron Hornostaj for a 3-1 victory in the opener.

All I was looking for was the Savannah of "Midnight in the Garden of Good an Evil" - the squares, the azaleas, the fountains, the architecture, the wrought iron, the cross-dressing maniacs. My first clue that something was up came when the buses full of seniors began to pull into the hotel.
