Rained shorten loss for Altoona

The same string of storms that caused the Pirates to be rained out on Saturday night impacted the Double-A Altoona Curve as well. Due to inclement weather, the Curve and Erie SeaWolves had their game go official after just 6 innings. The 6 inning game ended in a 4-1 loss for the Curve, dropping them to 50-54 on the season.

Jackson Wolf made his second start for Altoona, allowing 4 runs on five hits, three walks, six strikeouts, and a home run in 3.1 innings pitched. He also hit a batter and threw a wild pitch. Not a strong start for Wolf who pitched well in his Curve debut last Sunday.

Geronimo Franzua pitched 1.2 innings. Franzua retired all five batters he faced while striking out three. Grant Ford walked a batter in a scoreless 6th inning.

Jackson Glenn went 1-for-2 with a walk at the top of the Altoona lineup. Jacob Gonzalez was 1-for-3 with a RBI, Lolo Sanchez was 1-for-3 with a double, Eli Wilson was 1-for-3, and Matt Fraizer went 2-for-3.
