In most cases, Eric Place enjoys a good stretch as much as the next guy. But on Friday, Place's stretch made him do anything but relax. The Hagerstown Suns reliever came on to protect a 3-1 lead in the seventh inning against the Delmarva Shorebirds. And as it turned out, pitching out of the stretch almost tightened things up for Place and the Suns. "I don't know what it was," Place said. "I'm a reliever. I come in and pitch out of the stretch all the time. (Friday) was the first time anything like that has ever happened.

Most coaches prefer winning games by executing better than the opposition. For the time being, North Hagerstown boys basketball coach Tim McNamee will have to be satisfied with quantity over quality. The Hubs (2-1) used a 36-12 advantage from the free throw line to secure a 69-65 victory over Linganore Tuesday night. A team that relies heavily on getting easy buckets in transition to outscore the opposition, the Hubs were inconsistent at best. But the two stretches in which North was able to get its running game going were instrumental in securing the win. "In the spots when we played solid defense, we got (the running game)

I have to admit something here. Last Thursday just felt like another day to me. It was the Fourth of July and I just wasn't with it. I can read a calendar, but it felt like it was Saturday, not Thursday. My schedule didn't convince me. I worked on Thursday … but I work a lot of Saturdays, too. I grew up like every other kid. I studied American history. I've been at a barbeque or two. And I've seen more than a few bottle rockets in my lifetime. The fourth day in July is significant.
