Curve top Ponies

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — This has been a great bounce-back week for the Curve, and they had a strong bounce-back effort late in Thursday’s game to keep it going.

Binghamton rallied from a four-run deficit to tie in the late innings, but Altoona regrouped in time with two runs in the ninth for an 8-6 win at Maritoba Stadium. The Curve won their third straight and moved back to .500 in the second half, after dropping 12 of 15.

Jared Triolo’s RBI triple scored the go-ahead run in the ninth, and he came home on Endy Rodriguez’s single for an insurance run.

Aaron Shackelford cracked his team-leading 22nd home run for the Curve. Triolo, Blake Sabol and Liover Peguero had two hits apiece, and Malcom Nunez had his first RBI since joining the club in a trade with the Cardinals.

Quinn Priester allowed two runs in five innings for the Curve but didn’t get a win as Binghamton rallied late against the bullpen. Colin Selby (1-2) got the win in relief.
