LEADING OFF: The Curve were off Thursday and begin a three-game series at Akron tonight at 6:35.

SAFE AT FIRST: Tonight’s pitchers: Curve RHP Tanner Anderson (1-0, 0.84) vs. RubberDucks RHP Nick Pasquale (0-0, 4.66).

STEALING SECOND: Akron is off to a rare rough start at 4-9, which is last in the Western Division. The Curve lead the division at 9-4 and swept a three-game series against the RubberDucks last week at PNG Field.

ROUNDING THIRD: INF Chris Diaz was added to the Curve’s active roster Wednesday from extended spring training. He has been with the team all season, just not active.

HEADING HOME: After this series, the Curve head to Erie for three games beginning Monday. They’ll be off Thursday, then return to PNG Field for a six-game homestead against Harrisburg and Richmond.
