Curve Fall Behind Early, Lose to Bowie in Rain-Shortened Game

BOWIE, Md. – The Altoona Curve lost Sunday afternoon’s rain-shortened contest to the Bowie Baysox, 8-3, at Prince George’s Stadium. The game was called after the seventh inning for rain.

The Curve (27-21) fell behind early and scored their only three runs in the fourth. The Baysox (19-29) jumped ahead 4-0 through three innings and never trailed.

The Baysox stormed in front in the second inning with a solo homer by former Curve Quincy Latimore, and added three more runs in the third with a two-run homer by Garabez Rosa and an RBI double by Joey Terdoslavich, pushing the lead to 4-0.

The Curve closed back within a run in the top of the fourth inning. Austin Meadows doubled, and a throwing error by Terdoslavich allowed Erich Weiss to score. Edwin Espinal followed with a two-run home run, closing the cap to 4-3.

The Baysox answered with four runs in the bottom of the inning to pull ahead 8-3 and chased Curve starter Brandon Waddell (Loss, 3-1), who allowed a season-worst seven runs and did not record an out in the fourth.

In his first game with the Baysox, right-hander Brandon Barker (Win, 1-0) allowed three runs in five innings.

The Curve and Baysox finish the four-game series on Monday afternoon. Right-hander Tyler Eppler (2-3, 4.13) will be on the mound for Altoona, with Bowie sending lefty Chris Lee (5-0, 2.98). First pitch from Prince George’s Stadium in Bowie is scheduled for 2:05 p.m.
