BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — The Curve came into the week struggling, but they’ve been able to take out a lot of frustrations on a bad Binghamton team.
Altoona clobbered the Rumble Ponies on Wednesday night, 11-1, collecting 16 hits while tossing a one-hitter against the home team.
The Curve had won only three of their previous 15 games before this series, but have outscored Binghamton 17-1 in winning the first two games easily.
The Rumble Ponies have the league’s worst record at 39-64. They are 11-23 in the second half of the season. Altoona is 17-18 in the second half of the season and 50-54 overall this year.
The Curve drilled a season-high five home runs in the game at Mirabito Stadium. Aaron Shackelford smacked his team-high 21st long ball, while Jared Triolo, Liover Peguero, Connor Scott and Endy Rodriguez also homered.
Scott went 4-for-5. Rodriguez was just called up to Double-A and homered in his second game after hitting 16 for Greensboro. Triolo, Peguero, Shackelford and Blake Sabol had two hits apiece in the 16-hit attack.
Kyle Nicolas (1-3) gave up just one hit — a solo homer in the fourth — over six innings and won for Altoona. Three relievers then combined to finish off the one-hitter.
