LEADING OFF: The Curve won their 20th game of the season Monday night. It took the Curve almost the same amount of time to win 20 games last season, as they picked up their 20th victory of 2011 on May 20.
SAFE AT FIRST: The win makes it seven in a row for the Curve, and it's the team's first seven-game winning streak since 2010. The franchise record is 10, which occurred in 2005.
STEALING SECOND: Even though Altoona has won seven straight, its offensive numbers haven't been eye-popping. The Curve are hitting a modest .217 during the streak.
ROUNDING THIRD: On this homestand, the Curve's pitching staff has a collective ERA of 1.00, allowing four earned runs in 36 innings.
HEADING HOME: The Curve will face the Eastern League's best starting pitcher tonight in Harriburg RHP Danny Rosenbaum. In 57 2/3 innings, Rosenbaum has a 0.62 ERA (four earned runs), boasts a 5-0 record and has 37 strikeouts with only six walks.
