The Altoona Curve dropped their series opener against the Binghamton Mets 3-2 on Friday night.  In his last game before being promoted, left fielder Andrew Lambo had both RBIs with a single in the 4th inning.  David Bromberg started and took the loss for the Curve pitching 6 innings and surrendering 6 hits, 3 ER, 2 BB, while tabbing 4 K's.  He threw 97 pitches, with only 52 for strikes.

On the night, the Curve totaled nine hits, which is a positive compared to their hit totals earlier this season, but only Lambo was able to deliver the timely hit needed to plate some runs.  Both catcher Carlos Paulino and DH Charlie Cutler had two hits, with Paulino's double the only extra base hit on the night.

David Bromberg struggled with his command tonight.
