keller@herald-mail.com Hagerstown Suns manager Mike Ramsey isn't ready to push the panic button ... not just yet anyway. The Suns got another strong pitching performance - this time from Clay Hensley - but couldn't generate enough offense in the late innings to avoid a 3-2 loss at the hands of the Savannah SandGnats Monday at Municipal Stadium. The lack of offense is nothing new for the Suns. Through Sunday's games, Hagerstown had scored the fewest runs in the South Atlantic League, while only Lakewood and Delmarva had collected fewer hits.

koelble@herald-mail.com Even the best weather of the young season had a negative impact on the Hagerstown Suns Sunday afternoon at Municipal Stadium. Staring directly into a searing high sun and fighting a gusty breeze from third base to right field, third baseman Kevin Kelly battled a pop foul off the bat of Savannah's Chad Chop. Kelly dropped the ball, giving a ray of hope to Chop, who then drilled a single to left that was instrumental in a three-run second inning as Savannah snapped the Suns' modest three-game winning streak, 4-3. "It wasn't so much the wind, but the sun was coming in over the first base side that made the fly tough," Kelly said.

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.

There were a lot of fireworks at Municipal Stadium on Friday. But that's all there was. Rain cancelled the Hagerstown Suns' opening game with Savannah on Friday, but it didn't dampen the second of 13 fireworks shows they have scheduled for the season. The Suns and SandGnats will try to kick their series off today, with a doubleheader and without the fireworks. This is the only series Hagerstown and Savannah play this season, so Suns management will try to play all four games in the next three days.
