— Altoona won a wild one over Erie, 11-10. The Curve fell behind 7-0 in the first inning as starter Alex McRae retired only one batter. He was charged with six runs, five of them earned. Jared Lakind, who’s been struggling badly of late, followed with three and two-thirds innings of one-hit, one-run pitching. Lakind walked one and fanned six. The Curve came back with five runs in the bottom half of the first and eventually took an 11-7 lead. Buddy Borden and Luis Heredia combined to walk four and allow three runs in the seventh to make it 11-10, but Montana DuRapau protected the lead over the last two innings. After having his season-long on-base streak stopped yesterday, Kevin Kramer (pictured) went 3-4 with a double, a walk and his fourth HR.

— West Virginia (19-21) beat Columbia, 3-1. Cam Vieaux gave up one run over five and two-thirds innings on six hits and a walk, with three strikeouts. The Power had only four hits, half of them by Hunter Owen in three ABs. His two hits included his fourth HR. The Power may be without Stephen Alemais for a while, as he left yesterday’s game with an apparent wrist injury.
