LEADING OFF: The Curve wrap up their brief road trip with a Memorial Day game today at 2:05 against Bowie. They return to Peoples Natural Gas Field on Tuesday for a six-game homestand against Richmond and Portland.
SAFE AT FIRST: C Tony Sanchez went 2-for-3 with an RBI double Sunday to raise his average to .262. He's gone 8-for-22 in his last seven games to bring the average up from .240.
STEALING SECOND: The Curve received former major league RHP Logan Kensing from high-A Bradenton on Sunday, and he pitched a scoreless eighth inning. Kensing had gone 1-1 with a 1.69 ERA in four appearances for Bradenton.
ROUNDING THIRD: At 29, Kensing becomes the oldest player on the Curve roster (he'll be 30 on July 3). He pitched for the Florida Marlins every year from 2004-09 and also for the Washington Nationals in '09, going 8-9 with a 5.81 ERA in 134 games (3 starts) in the majors. He missed all of 2010 with a shoulder injury, and after starting 2011 in independent ball, he signed with the Yankees and went 1-1 with a 4.28 ERA in 21 appearances for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
HEADING HOME: INF Greg Picart has been transferred to the roster of short-season State College to make room for Kensing, although Picart remains with the Curve.
