Game Two Cancelled After Suns Take Game One From RiverDogs

Posted: Updated:

Bobby Hansen, Jr. tossed four scoreless innings for the Hagerstown Suns as they defeated the Charleston RiverDogs 2-0 in a rain shortened affair at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park on Saturday afternoon with 2,870 on hand. 

The loss drops the RiverDogs to 61-54 (22-26 in the second half) on the season while Hagerstown now stands at 68-49 (26-22 in the second half). 

The Suns picked up the game's first run in the fourth inning off starting pitcher Bryan Mitchell (7-10) when Justin Miller led-off with a single and later scored on a wild pitch. That was all Mitchell would allow, as he only gave up one hit and struck out eight in four innings. 

Unfortunately for Charleston, Hansen (3-4) was a little better. In four shutout innings, the RiverDogs managed only five hits and three walks against him with two strikeouts. Christian Meza pitched a perfect fifth for his second save. 

In the sixth, Hagerstown started the frame with three straight hits, the last one being an RBI double by J.R. Higley to make the score 2-0. That was when the rains came and forced the first game to be ended early and the second game to be cancelled. 

Fans holding tickets for Saturday's game can exchange them for tickets to any remaining 2012 regular-season RiverDogs home game.
