Covering the bases
LEADING OFF: The Curve were rained out Friday night at Richmond and will play a doubleheader tonight beginning at 5:05.
SAFE AT FIRST: RHP Casey Sadler (10-7, 3.41) and RHP Nick Kingham (3-3, 3.06) will pitch for the Curve against Richmond LHP Chris Gloor (9-6, 3.86) and RHP Taylor Rogers (5-8. 5.44).
STEALING SECOND: Richmond has a lot to play for as it is within striking distance of a playoff spot in the Western Division. The Flying Squirrels entered Friday just two games behind Harrisburg and 2 1/2 games behind Erie in the division. The top two teams make the playoffs.
ROUNDING THIRD: Richmond will win the Eastern League's attendance race this season. The Flying Squirrels are averaging 6,608 fans, well ahead of second-place Reading's average of 6,301.
HEADING HOME: The Curve have four home games left, against Akron from Aug. 30-Sept. 2.
