LEADING OFF: Several Curve players had big nights in defeat Tuesday. RF Miles Durham was 3-for-4 with three doubles, while 3B Josh Harrison and LF Andrew Lambo also went 3-for-4 as Altoona collected 15 hits. Lambo is hitting .406 in eight games since joining the team in a trade with the Dodgers.
SAFE AT FIRST: Bowie and Harrisburg both lost Tuesday, so the Curve remain three games up on the Baysox and 5 1/2 on the Senators.
STEALING SECOND: RHP Dustin Molleken was placed on the disabled list with a rotator cuff strain, retroactive to Saturday. Molleken has been a steady member of the bullpen all season, posting a 4.22 ERA in 30 appearances.
ROUNDING THIRD: Trenton leads New Hampshire by one game in the Eastern Division, which has been strong all season. The Thunder (69-47) and Fisher Cats (68-48) have the best records in the EL. "It's pretty good," Trenton manager Tony Franklin said of the division. "New Hampshire is a very consistent baseball team. Offensively and defensively, you know what you're up against when you face them, much like it is when we play the Curve."
