There's a right side and a wrong side for pitchers when they face the Hagerstown Suns. On Sunday, Capital City's Kevin Dougherty was right by being wrong. That "wrong side" is any pitcher who throws with his left arm. It saps the Suns' strength quicker than a kryptonite cape around Superman's neck. And Dougherty had Hagerstown flailing away for 7 1/3 innings in the Bombers' 8-3 South Atlantic League victory before 2,838 at Municipal Stadium. "We just didn't hit the ball," Pevey said.

The Hagerstown Suns didn't leave much to the imagination or for analysis. The answer was simple. The Macon Braves made the best of what they had. Meanwhile, the Suns made a mess of what they had. The end result was Macon taking advantage of a three-run first inning Monday at Municipal Stadium in a 6-1 victory over the Suns, who took advantage of very little. "It was a tough game. They just came out and took care of business," Pevey said. "They made the most of what they were given, and we didn't.

Greg Morrison had a little trouble grasping the concept of being the No. 4 hitter in the Hagerstown Suns' batting order, but considering Saturday's results, who cares? The first baseman was supposed to be the cleanup hitter, but the Suns benefited because Morrison was a litterbug. Morrison went 4-for-4 with a walk - falling a home run short of the cycle - to score four runs and drive in two others to help lead the Suns to a 12-3 shellacking of the Delmarva Shorebirds at Municipal Stadium.

Hagerstown Suns manager Marty Pevey's favorite video is an action thriller with a lot of destruction and a happy ending. Forget Titanic. Pevey has been watching 1997 films of Greg Morrison during his triple-crown season at Medicine Hat. That's when the first baseman was at his best, hitting for average, power and production with a lost ability to drive the ball to the opposite field. On Saturday, film became reality, as Morrison went from screen star to center stage. The left-handed Morrison broke open a tie game with a two-out, two-run double on a drive to left off left-handed closer Shawn Barry to highlight a four-run eighth inning and lift the Suns to a come-from-behind 11-9 victory over Capital City Bombers at Municipal Stadium.

By BOB PARASILITI Staff Writer Bobby Cripps has been getting more than his share of breaks of late. So, he decided send one Clayton Andrews way. Cripps' breaks have come in the form of curveballs and changeups, not exactly the pitch of choice for power hitters. Yet Hagerstown's designated hitter ripped the first change he saw for a 350-foot RBI single in the ninth inning Friday to give the Suns a 4-3 victory over Savannah and preserve something positive for Andrews.
