Covering the bases
LEADING OFF: Curve C Elias Diaz has now registered a hit in 10 of his last 12 games. During that stretch, he has six multi-hit games, two of which he had three.
SAFE AT FIRST: SeaWolves manager Lance Parrish is coaching his former teammate Chet Lemon's son, Marcus. Parrish and Chet both played for the Detroit Tigers during the 1980s.
STEALING SECOND: To clear a spot on the 40-man roster for 1B Matt Hague to be called up Wednesday, they designated RHP Duke Welker for assignment. Welker underwent Tommy John surgery on June 5 and is out for the year. Both players are Curve alum from 2010, and 2011-12, respectively.
ROUNDING THIRD: Former Curve OF Robbie Grossman replaced another former OF, Alex Presley, on the Astros roster. Presley went on the disabled list with a left oblique injury.
HEADING HOME: Fans of "The Walking Dead" can meet Vincent M. Ward, who played Oscar on the show. He will sign autographs for two hours and throw out the first pitch. It's also their final home game before the All-Star Break. They will head to Harrisburg for a five game series on Friday, which includes Saturday's doubleheader.
