ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Jeff Kobernus drove in four runs with one swing of the bat. But the Hagerstown Suns still let a whole busload of runners get away. Hagerstown's second baseman hit his first home run of the year -- a grand slam -- on Wednesday but the Suns' inability to cash in on 15 runners who were stranded on base led to a 13-10 loss to the Asheville Tourists. The Suns (46-50) squandered a 9-7 lead by allowing four runs in the seventh and two more in the eighth for another late-inning loss.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- Well, at least it wasn't in the final innings. Asheville hit three home runs -- including back-to-back shots by Angelys Nina and Jared Clark -- in a four-run fifth inning to pave the way to a 7-4 victory and a four-game sweep of the Hagerstown Suns. The outburst gave the Tourists a 4-1 lead that they held onto. In Asheville's previous two victories over the Suns, it scored multiple runs in the late innings for 13-10 and 13-4 victories. The Suns (10-18, 46-52)

Ferrer pitched six innings, allowing four hits, walking one and striking out seven. The Tourists scored a run in the second and five in the fifth, all off starter Erik Arnesen (5-6).

ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Pinch hitter Whitey Schwartzbauer's seventh-inning RBI grounder was the difference as the Asheville Tourists withstood a furious three-run rally in the ninth Saturday for an 8-7 South Atlantic League victory over the Hagerstown Suns.
