bobp@herald-mail.com Travis Ishikawa turned himself into an editor on Friday. The Hagerstown Suns first baseman took the book that Delmarva had on him and abridged it. The Shorebirds followed the manuscript they had compiled last weekend to neutralize Ishikawa when they played at Municipal Stadium - left-handed pitching working inside. But Ishikawa ripped the page out of the binding with a three-run homer in the sixth to give the streaking Suns a 4-3 victory. In fact, Ishikawa drove in all four Hagerstown runs - tying the game with a fourth-inning single - as the Suns (29-23)

Municipal Stadium was a hard-hat zone Tuesday. It went from being a construction site to a demolition area in a matter of minutes. Delmarva built a foundation by using execution to outscore Hagerstown 4-1 early and eventually brought down the Suns' three-game win streak in the Shorebirds' 6-2 victory before an Education Day morning matinee crowd. The first five runs of the game were products of batters moving runners into scoring position to set up RBI situations for teammates.

Not only are the Hagerstown Suns learning how to play in close games in the late innings, they appear to be enjoying it. The Suns scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth to break a 5-5 tie, leading to Sunday's 8-5 win over Delmarva to sweep the weekend series. And with that, the Shorebirds displaced the Suns in last place of the South Atlantic League Northern Division standings. Hagerstown (9-14) lost four in a row before claiming wins with walk-off home runs in the first two games of the series.

When Delmarva's Matt Riley hesitated, Hagerstown's Tony Peters didn't. In fact, the Suns designated hitter did what he does best ... he got down and dirty about it. Peters' return to the Suns active roster on Sunday was innocent enough - he drew a leadoff walk. But he followed it up with two stolen bases to ignite Hagerstown's four-run first inning and a 4-0 South Atlantic League victory over the Shorebirds. --cont from sports -- "It's important for the leadoff hitter to get on and cause disturbances on the bases," Peters said.

The Delmarva Shorebirds didn't seem to have any plans for Friday night. They seemingly took their time getting around the bases to get the job done. Delmarva used walks and singles to build three rallies and settled in behind the pitching of starter Nathan Nery to claim a 6-1 victory over the Suns at Municipal Stadium. The Shorebirds chipped away at the Suns while Nery allowed no runs on two hits to net his fifth win in eight decisions. Ricardo Pecina made his second appearance for Hagerstown, going 4 1/3 innings in the start, while allowing two runs on six hits.

SALISBURY, Md. - One thing changed, another stayed the same for the Hagerstown Suns on Wednesday. Hagerstown continued to have trouble hitting in key situations, which was enough to help Delmarva score a 4-2 victory, the Shorebirds' first in nine tries against the Suns. The Suns (44-41, 9-9) had opportunities to break a 2-2 tie with two runners on in the fifth and seventh innings, but failed on both tries. Hagerstown also has runners on second and third with two outs in the ninth, but Carlos Sosa hit a short fly to center to end the threat and the game.

While he was in town, Austin Kearns decided to at least lend a helping hand. Kearns completed the last of a two-day rehabilitation stint with Hagerstown with an RBI single and three walks on Friday as the Suns held off Delmarva 7-6. Kearns is working his way back to the Washington Nationals lineup after undergoing elbow surgery to remove bone chips. He will now play a few games for Triple-A Columbus before rejoining the Nats next weekend. Kearns' single in the fifth inning ignited a four-run rally for the Suns to take a 6-1 lead.

Baseball's smallest measurement made the biggest difference for the Hagerstown Suns on Friday. One pitch ... It was the difference between turning off a dripping faucet and opening the floodgates. Hagerstown pitcher Ryan Sadowski was one pitch away from extracting the Suns from a bases-loaded, no-out situation. A pitch just off the outside corner to Eric Grimm forced in a run and ignited a five-run rally to lead Delmarva to a 12-2 victory at Municipal Stadium. "Sadowski came on and got the two quick outs and was one hitter away from getting us out of it and he walked one in," Suns manager Mike Ramsey said.
