ALBANY, N.Y. -- Mel Wearing's ninth-inning single scored Mark Smith with the winning run yesterday, giving the Hagerstown Suns a 3-2 victory over the Albany-Colonie Yankees and a three-game sweep of their Double-A Eastern League series.

It was the Suns' first series sweep in Albany since 1989. Hagerstown swept a doubleheader Saturday from the Yankees,

2-1 and 6-3.

Smith walked to lead off the ninth and advanced to third on a failed pickoff attempt by Jerry Nielson. Wearing's hit came with two out.

Winner David Miller (4-7) pitched three innings, giving up three hits, one run and one walk and striking out four. Loser Nielson (3-5) went 2 1/3 innings, giving up one hit, one run and one walk.
