Curve’s woes continue

BOWIE, Md. — This has been a rough week so far for the Curve, whose big opportunity has looked like a big mismatch.

Bowie blew out Altoona for the third straight game Thursday afternoon, rolling to a 13-4 victory at Prince Georges Stadium. This was to be a battle for first place in the Southwest Division, but so far the Baysox have looked like the far superior team in building a 3¢-game lead.

There are still three games left in the series, so the Curve have a chance to regroup. And they’ll need to, or else will find themselves sinking even further behind in the standings.

Bowie scored five runs in the third inning Thursday to take control, then poured it on with two more in the fourth and three in the fifth for a 10-4 cushion.

Curve starter Luis Ortiz (3-7) allowed six runs in 3• innings to take the loss.

Andres Alvarez hit his 15th home run for the Curve, while Liover Peguero smacked his seventh. Jared Triolo went 3-for-4 with two runs.
