Curve’s streak snapped
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — The Curve’s winning streak came to an end Sunday as the team with the worst record in pro baseball finally posted a victory.
Altoona had won seven in a row, while Binghamton had started the season 0-10. But the Rumble Ponies ended their skid with a 7-3 win at NYSEG Stadium.
Binghamton broke up a 1-1 tie with two runs in the third inning and added two more in the fourth to take control.
The Curve are off today, then begin a six-game series at Harrisburg on Tuesday.
The Curve were looking to become the first team to sweep a six-game series in the Double-A Northeast League. The circuit, formerly called the Eastern League, is playing all six-game series this season.
The Curve offense didn’t do much on the day, scoring just one run over the first eight innings.
Stats and stuff
Jeff Passantino (0-1) gave up three runs on five hits in three innings to take the loss. Tylor Megill (1-0) won for Binghamton, allowing one run on four hits in six innings.
Mason Martin went 2-for-3 for the Curve.
The Curve scored four runs in the first inning Saturday night, only to give that entire lead away as the Rumble Ponies rallied to tie. But Altoona prevailed in 10 innings, 6-5.
