HIGHLIGHTS: The Curve put on a display of power Sunday, connecting for 16 hits, 5 of which were home runs. A 7-run second inning for Altoona put the Sea Dogs (30-25) behind the 8-ball early. Matt Barnes suffered his worst outing of the season, lasting only 1 2/3 innings after allowed 7 earned runs and 6 hits (3 home runs). He did have a shorter outing in his season debut (1 innings), but was pulled from that game due to an inning pitch limit. Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-4 and has hit safely in 7 straight games. He is 11-for-23 with 9 RBIs and 6 runs in that span.
