The Columbus Clippers game was rained out on Saturday.

Aeros fall in first game, second game washed out

The Aeros fell to Altoona 8-0 in game one of a doubleheader Saturday night at Blair County Ballpark, with game two rained out. The postponed contest will be made up as part of a twin-bill Sunday afternoon starting at 2:05 p.m., which is an hour earlier that originally scheduled.

The Curve led from the outset in game one, as Brian Friday capped a 10-pitch at-bat with a leadoff homer to left off Akron starter Erik Stiller for a quick 1-0 lead. Altoona added another run in the second on an RBI double from Jason Delaney, and doubled the advantage to 4-0 in the third on a run-scoring double from James Boone and a sacrifice fly from Brad Corley. The Curve then broke the game open with a three-run rally in the fourth, as Delaney delivered an RBI single and Boone blooped a two-run single to center to make it 7-0. Boone then capped the scoring with an RBI double in the sixth, as Akron was shutout for the first time since April 16th.

Eric Krebs (2-3) got the win in relief for Altoona, turning in a pair of scoreless innings. Stiller (1-3) managed just three innings, allowing seven runs and eight hits. Akron mustered just four hits in the ballgame, although Matt McBride did extend his hitting streak to five games with a double in the second. Nick Weglarz finished 0-2 with a walk however, and his hitting streak ended at five games.

Kinston comes up short
