Covering the bases
LEADING OFF: Former Curve pitcher Matt Duff and the co-host of his Outdoor Channel show "Friends of the NRA" Jessie Abbate threw out the first pitches. Duff pitched for Altoona from 1999-2000.
SAFE AT FIRST: The Curve unveiled the "What We're Watching Wednesday" promotion with a LOST theme. Curve pitcher Jeff Locke was compared to John Locke/smoke monster and the Aeros were referred to on the scoreboard as "The Others."
STEALING SECOND: Eric Fryer's home run was the first at Blair County Ballpark by a Curve player not named Jordy Mercer this season.
ROUNDING THIRD: A sign over the left-field wall sponsored by Reliance Bank counts the Curve's homers this year. It was updated to "4" by Al Tuna in the sixth.
HEADING HOME: Jeremy Farrell was injured sliding into second during the second inning and had to leave his second consecutive game due to injury after being kicked in the head. He is day-to-day.
