— Altoona (53-46) finished yesterday’s suspended game, winning 10-2 over Akron. The game was stopped by a power failure with the Curve up, 8-2, in the eighth. Four of those runs came off a rehabbing Andrew Miller. Will Craig was 3-3 with a double and his 17th home run when the lights went out, then added a single to go 4-4. His three RBIs gave him 80, with plenty of time left to reach 100, an uncommon feat in the minors. Christian Kelley went 2-4 with a double and Bryan Reynolds 2-5. Logan Hill hit his 13th homer after play resumed. Luis Escobar gave up two runs over six innings, on three hits and three walks. He struck out three.
