Hagerstown, MD: The Hagerstown Suns (19-35) won game two of their four game series with the Greensboro Grasshoppers (26-29) 2-1 on Friday night at Municipal Stadium.

Strong pitching propelled the Suns to the victory, with starter Brad Meyers pitching six innings and allowing only one run. Relievers Joe Welsh and Josh Wilkie were equally effective, pitching the final three innings without allowing Greensboro to score.

The lone run for Greensboro came on the first pitch of the game from Meyers as John Raynor hit a wind-aided home run to right-center field.
