HAGERSTOWN -- Brent Miller's bases-loaded single with one out in the eighth inning lifted the Hagerstown Suns past the Canton-Akron Indians, 4-3, last night in a Double-A Eastern League game.

Also last night, the Suns (46-54) rallied from a seventh-inning deficit to beat the Indians, 9-4, completing a suspended game from July 16.

Canton-Akron (57-43) scored three runs in the first inning of the regular game, but the Suns rallied and tied it on Miller's sacrifice fly in the sixth inning that scored teammate Manny Alexander.

Brian Wood (3-2) was the winning pitcher.

In the completion of the suspended game, Kyle Washington, Paul Carey and Cesar Devarez drove in runs in the seventh to put the Suns ahead, 6-4.

The Suns had a season-high 18 hits and were led by Washington (3-for-5, 2 RBI), Sam Ferretti (3-for-5, 2 RBI) and Alexander (3-for-6).

John Polasek (1-1) got the win for Hagerstown. Bill Wertz (7-2) was the losing pitcher for the Indians.
