Altoona Curve News Release

ERIE, Pa. - Seth Beer broke a scoreless game with his second home run of the season on Wednesday afternoon as Altoona shutout the Erie SeaWolves, 2-0, at UPMC Park.

The game was scoreless throughout the first six innings, but When It Rains It Pours as a rain delay of nearly an hour and a half took place.

Erie was One Number Away with the game-tying runner at the plate when Dombkowski slammed the door with a strikeout, working Better Together with catcher Wyatt Hendrie, who threw out the base runner at first to end the game.

Both Altoona runs came in the top of the eighth inning, with Beer leading off the frame with a Going, Going, Gone solo home run off the area in left field to break the tie. Later in the inning, Dustin Peterson drew a walk before hopping in a Fast Car to third base on a perfectly executed hit-and-run by Tsung-Che Cheng . Sammy Siani then lifted a sacrifice fly to extend Altoona's lead. The Curve had nine hits in the Beautiful Crazy shutout win, the second of the season for the Curve.
