TRENTON, N.J. - One of the worst and most baffling losing streaks in Curve history finally ended Monday night.
Altoona rallied with five runs in the eighth inning and snapped its 13-game road losing streak with a 6-2 win over Trenton at Waterfront Park. The Curve had not won away from home in nearly a month - since July 24 at Reading - and the 13-game slide far surpassed the previous road-record losing streak of eight, set in 2009.
The win also snapped a six-game losing streak overall, which occurred after the Curve had won five in a row at home.
Despite all their struggles on the road, the Curve showed some spunk in the eighth inning as they overcame a 2-1 deficit by scoring five times. The rally didn't start until there were two outs, and Altoona came up with numerous clutch hits to take the lead.
Ramon Cabrera, who doubled home Altoona's first run in the sixth, started the eighth-inning rally with a single. Andrew Lambo followed with a single, Matt Curry walked and Oscar Tejeda tied the game with a single that scored Cabrera.
Quincy Latimore then delivered a two-run single that brought home Lambo and Curry. Jarek Cunningham added an RBI single that scored Tejeda, and Latimore came home on an error by shortstop Addison Maruszak.
Reliever Erik Turgeon (1-0) won in his Curve debut, with Vic Black finishing things off in the ninth to end the losing streak.
The skid essentially destroyed the Curve's season as they were in the Western Division playoff hunt before collapsing on the road. Now they're 7 1/2 games behind Bowie for the wild-card spot with only 15 games left.
Josh Romanski (1-2) lost in relief for Trenton, which has dropped four in a row to the Curve, going back to last week's three-game sweep at Peoples Natural Gas Field.
Key player: C Ramon Cabrera went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run and got the eighth-inning rally started with a single.
Key play: CF Quincy Latimore singled home two runs for a 4-2 lead in the eighth.
Key stat: The Curve ended their 13-game road losing streak and won away from home for the first time since July 24.
