Allegheny Energy pulls final plug on merger Allegheny Energy has officially abandoned its proposed merger with DQE Inc. The merger had all but ended in December, when a federal judge ruled in favor of DQE's decision to back out of the proposed $4.3 billion deal. On Friday, the Hagerstown-based electric company made it official by filing paperwork with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. "We decided not to pursue it further. We're moving forward with other things," said spokeswoman Cynthia A. Shoop.

It was a festive time Thursday night as the home opener for the Hagerstown Suns got under way, but fans couldn't help but worry about the minor league baseball team possibly packing its bags and moving to Winchester, Va. It was an especially poignant moment for Paul Barr of Williamsport. Barr, who was walking through the gates of Municipal Stadium before the Suns 7 p.m. game against the West Virginia Power, said his dad played at Municipal Stadium in the 1940s and 1950s. Barr said his father - Ed Barr, nicknamed “Whiskey” - pitched for the Washington Senators and struck out Willie Mays at the local field.

Brian Goodwin went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer for Hagerstown in the Suns' 8-6 victory over the West Virginia Power on Sunday at Municipal Stadium.

Goodwin's second home run of the season, a blast to right in the bottom of the third inning, tied the game at 3-3. After West Virginia went up 4-3 in the top of the fifth, Hagerstown rallied for three runs in the bottom of the fifth to take the lead for good, getting a one-out, bases-loaded RBI single by Justin Miller, followed by a two-run double by Hendry Jimenez.

Brett Newsome’s two-run home run highlighted Hagerstown’s three-run second inning, and Bobby Hansen allowed just two hits in six innings as the Suns defeated the West Virginia Power 3-1 on Friday night in the South Atlantic League. Wade Moore opened the second inning with a walk against Power starter Zack Von Rosenberg. Moore stole second before Randolph Oduber’s RBI single to center. One out later, Newsome hit his second home run of the season — and second of the series — out to right.

When Brandon Nall is on, he's like espresso. On a good day, everything the Hagerstown Suns' reliever throws ends up being hot, potent and well grounded. Nall was on Wednesday and, because of that, the West Virginia Power will probably be up all night. Nall used his sidearming motion to fire 3 1/3 innings of effective relief to help the Suns protect a lead and pick up a 2-1 win over the Power, the top hitting team in the South Atlantic League. "That's my forte is throwing sidearm," said Nall (1-2)

Michael Taylor finds a way to keep breathing while all around them are holding their breath. That’s what makes the outfielder Hagerstown’s biggest threat when the game is on the line in the ninth inning. Taylor did it again in calm, cool and collected fashion on Thursday. Taylor drove in all four of Hagerstown’s runs — including a three-run homer with one out in the ninth — to lift the Suns to a 4-2 victory over the West Virginia Power at Municipal Stadium. “I love to come up in that situation,” said Taylor, who collected both of his hits in the final three innings.

Plainly put, the West Virginia Power were saved by the Bell. Which meant it didn't toll well for the Hagerstown Suns. Josh Bell drove in four runs - including a crucial two-run double in the 11th inning - to lift the Power to a 6-3 win over the Suns on Friday at Municipal Stadium to tie the South Atlantic League's Northern Division playoff series at one game each. With the victory, the Power forced a deciding game in the best-of-3 series tonight at 7:05 at the stadium. The winner will advance to the SAL championship series against Savannah, which finished its sweep of Augusta on Friday.

There was only one thing more dramatic than Alex Meyer's first start for the Hagerstown Suns on Saturday. It was Aaron Barrett's finish. Meyer, the Washington Nationals' top selection in the 2011 draft, threw five sparkling shutout innings in his professional pitching debut to put the Suns ahead. But it was the two-inning save by Barrett that kept them there in a 4-3 win over the West Virginia Power before 691 fans at chilly Municipal Stadium. Meyer was long gone by the time Barrett came on the scene, but he was a sight for sore eyes for Hagerstown.

The Hagerstown Suns were stuck in suspended animation. The Suns didn't move a muscle to score three runs against the West Virginia Power on Friday. But then, again, Hagerstown's offense barely twitched once it fell behind. West Virginia's pitching issued 10 walks, but only surrendered two hits, as it somehow rendered the Suns' offense powerless in a 5-3 victory before 733 fans at Municipal Stadium. If the game was a work of art, sculpting would have been the most effective medium.

Brian Daubach played a game of give and take on Tuesday. Daubach returned to Municipal Stadium to begin his second stint as manager of the Hagerstown Suns. Many things changed, but many more stayed the same. For one, all the fanfare surrounding the Single-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals died down some. The Suns didn't have the highly touted Bryce Harper trotting out on the field this year, so Tuesday's media day was a little quieter. But that didn't mean the enthusiasm about the 2012 team had changed.
