Bullpen metldown leads to Curve loss
Thursday night the Double-A Altoona Curve appeared to be well on their way to victory. Well, that was until the Curve bullpen got involved. Late inning bullpen woes led to a 6-3 loss for the Curve against the Somerset Patriots to drop Altoona to 30-28 on the season.
Aaron Shortridge started for the Curve. Shortridge allowed three hits, walked three, and struck out six in 6 scoreless innings pitched. Unfortunately, after Shortridge's night ended the bullpen would completely implode for the Curve.
Bear Bellomy was first up. Bellomy allowed 2 runs on a 2-run home run while recording just one out. Next up was Cam Junker who allowed 4 runs on two hits, a home run, and four walks in 1 inning pitched. Lefty Braden Ogle would record a strikeout while getting the final two outs of the 8th inning.
At the top of the Curve lineup Liover Peguero remained red hot going 2-for-5 including a home run to lead off the game, giving him 8 home runs on the season. Matt Gorski was 2-for-5, Jacob Gonzalez was 1-for-3 with a RBI, Andres Alvarez was 1-for-3, and Matt Fraizer was 0-for-3 with a RBI.
