Covering the bases
LEADING OFF: The Curve were rained out again Wednesday at Erie, wiping out a doubleheader. That's now six times the team has been rained out already this season.
SAFE AT FIRST: The Curve and SeaWolves will try once again today to play a doubleheader at Jerry Uht Park, with the first game getting under way at 11:05 a.m.
STEALING SECOND: Pirates LHP Wandy Rodriguez is still slated to make a rehab start for the Curve today in the first game. Rodriguez is coming back from a knee injury and is expected to rejoin the Pirates as long as everything goes well today.
ROUNDING THIRD: LHP Joely Rodriguez (1-2, 5.12) will start the second game for Altoona. Erie's pitchers will be LHP Kyle Ryan (2-2, 3.13) and RHP Nick Avila (0-1, 8.22).
HEADING HOME: The Curve will head home after today's doubleheader and begin a seven-game homestand Friday against Akron and Bowie. Saturday is a 4:30 p.m. doubleheader against the RubberDucks.
