LEADING OFF: July is over, but Curve fans are hoping that how Alex Dickerson hit in the month isn't. Dickerson finished the month of July, hitting .413, driving in 27 runs and six hits. "We know he hits the ball," Curve manager Carlos Garcia said. "He was the player of the year in the Florida State League, and right now he is going towards the same direction. We know he is a player that can be an impact player in Pittsburgh."
