ALTOONA CURVE (AA)

Owens

Altoona finished up a suspended game with Richmond from July 12th, losing the game 9-6.  Tim Alderson took the loss, although he obviously pitched on July 12th, and not tonight, as he was pitching in Bradenton in high-A tonight, where he was credited with a win.  Pretty eventful night for a pitcher when he’s credited with a win and a loss for two different teams, in two different leagues.

Starling Marte (.331) went 2-for-3 with a double and a triple, plus a walk and two RBIs.  Quincy Latimore (.262) went 1-for-2 with a homer (18), two runs, and two RBIs.  Calvin Anderson (.267) went 1-for-4 with a grand slam (11).  Shelby Ford (.222) went 1-for-4 with a solo homer (2).

Bradenton won game two 4-1.  Aaron Pribanic (W, 7-6, 3.40) pitched six innings, allowing a run on six hits, with no walks and three strikeouts.  Noah Krol (SV, 32, 3.28) pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout.

Robbie Grossman (.241) went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs.  Marte went 2-for-3 with a run, an RBI, and a stolen base (18).
