Mike Strange isn't exactly a charity case, but he won't turn down any donations to his batting average. So Strange was thankful for the contribution made by the Charleston Alley Cats on Sunday. Strange took advantage of Charleston's soft defensive alignment to lay down a two-out, RBI bunt single to snap a 1-1 tie and lead the Hagerstown Suns to a 7-1 win over the Alley Cats and into a tie for the South Atlantic League Northern Division lead. "We're finally getting back to the way we played in the first half," Strange said.

Tony Peters and Jesse Zepeda became Hagerstown's resident conservationalists on Saturday. Both came up so big by trying to do so little. Peters clubbed a two-run homer in the opener and Zepeda came back with a grand slam in the six-run second inning of the nightcap to propel the Hagerstown Suns to a 2-1 and 8-4 doubleheader sweep of the Charleston Alley Cats before 3,236 fans at Municipal Stadium. Pitching should have headed the show for the Suns with their two aces - John Sneed and Clayton Andrews - working the twinbill.

The Hagerstown Suns tried to knock off two invincible foes in one game. The Suns figured out a way to handle Cape Fear this week. But the weather, that's a different story. Hagerstown pulled out every fundamental trick possible to snatch a rain-shortened game. Instead, the Suns were forced to score a run in the fifth to preserve a rain-suspended 2-2 South Atlantic League tie Thursday at Municipal Stadium. "That was crazy," Suns manager Marty Pevey said. "Have you ever seen so much bunting and hit-and-runs in your life?

It had all the feel of baseball's version of ancient water torture. Rip. Rip. Rip. In slow, agonizing fashion, the Hagerstown Suns took their time beating up on Cape Fear starter Edward Quezada in the third inning on Wednesday. It took 25 minutes and five singles for the Suns to score three runs, but it was more than enough to support a very patient John Sneed in a 9-1 South Atlantic League victory. The Suns played fundamentally sound, station-to-station baseball as runners circled the bases in merry-go-round fashion.

Corey Taylor and Sandro Garcia should consider themselves lucky. They got to bat for the Charleston (W.Va.) Alley Cats 10 minutes before Joe Young took the mound for the Hagerstown Suns. Charleston's two leadoff men got their team on the scoreboard against a reasonable facsimile of Young. But Hagerstown's right-hander punched the clock after that, getting to work to fire seven innings of four-hit pitching Thursday to lead the Suns to a 7-4 victory at Municipal Stadium. Taylor led off with a bloop to right field that bounced past Lorenzo Bagley and scored on Garcia grounder to deep short.

The Hagerstown Suns were in an awkward position. Winning both ends of Wednesday night's doubleheader against Charleston was a must for the Suns in order to remain in the first-half pennant race in the South Atlantic League's Northern Division. But the Alley Cats host Cape Fear, the team the Suns are chasing, in the final four games of the half. "We'll see if we can get (Cape Fear) for you," said Charleston manager Barry Lyons to Marty Pevey, the Hagerstown boss, before boarding the bus for the ride home after watching the Suns complete the sweep, 2-0 and 3-1. "By the way, can I borrow three or four of your hitters?"

Isabel Giron wasn't real surprised at the way he handled the Capital City Bombers with relative ease. "I got up this morning and had a good feeling about today's game," the Hagerstown Suns' pitcher said. So, in Giron's mind, Saturday's five-hit, 6-0 victory at Municipal Stadium wasn't all that shocking. Especially when its compared to the prizes he won with the outing - a promotion and a one-way ticket to Knoxville, Tenn. The Suns announced that Giron was promoted to the Double-A Knoxville Smokies of the Southern League after the game.

The Hagerstown Suns got an eviction notice and a pink slip in one fell swoop on Sunday. It was the day before Labor Day, but the Hagerstown Suns were out of work. The Suns were going home for the holiday in agonizing, uncharacteristic fashion. The Capital City Bombers put on a relentless display, cracking four home runs in the first five innings to knock the Suns out of the pitching penthouse and ending their season with a 9-1 defeat at Municipal Stadium. Clayton Andrews, who led the South Atlantic League with a 2.28 earned run average during the regular season, was victimized by Capital City's relentless attack, the hitting team in the league.

Dorothy was right when she said, "There's no place like home," in The Wizard of Oz. At least the Hagerstown Suns think so. After finishing a 12-day road trip with four straight losses, Hagerstown rebounded behind an outstanding pitching effort from John Sneed and Lorenzo Bagley's three-run homer for a 6-2 win over Hickory in a South Atlantic League game Tuesday night at Municipal Stadium. Crawdads starter Hansel Izquierdo (2-3) allowed just one base runner through the first three innings before Jesse Zepeda looped a single to left to open the fourth.
