LEADING OFF: With a 3-for-5 performance Sunday, SS Brock Holt raised his season average to .322. Holt's average is now the best in the Eastern League, as it's one point better than Akron's Chun-Hsiu Chen.
SAFE AT FIRST: Holt spent his fourth straight game at DH Sunday night. Curve manager P.J. Forbes said Holt was dealing with a sore shoulder, and he expects him to return to the field on the Curve's upcoming road trip.
STEALING SECOND: The Curve played their sixth extra-inning game of the season Sunday, and their first since July 12. The Curve are 4-2 in games that go longer than nine innings this year.
ROUNDING THIRD: With the win, the Curve improved their season mark at Peoples Natural Gas Field to 33-22. This is far better than their road record (21-31), and the Curve's 33 road wins are the second most in the Eastern League.
HEADING HOME: Altoona will have a chance to better its road record this week as the team heads to Trenton and New Britain for a six-game road trip which starts Tuesday after an off day today. The Curve are 1-2 against Trenton and 2-1 against New Britain this season.
