JOHNSTOWN — Eastern League
Flying Squirrels 2, Curve 1: In Altoona, a ninth-inning rally was too little, too late for the Curve in a loss to the Richmond Flying Squirrels.
Stetson Allie hit a leadoff homer in the ninth and the Curve put the tying run on base, but did not cash in.
Squirrels starter Clayton Blackburn kept the Curve hitters off balance through the first four innings and did not allow a hit until Elias Diaz broke through and singled with one out in the fifth.
Blackburn (1-1) ended up going a Double-A high 6 1⁄3 innings and did not allow a run while striking out three batters.
Richmond scored its two runs off Nick Kingham (1-1) in the third inning thanks to a pair of errors. Jarrett Parker batted a fielder’s choice that scored Richmond’s first run. Kingham then attempted to pick Parker off at first but the throw went by Allie and Parker went first to third. Angel Villalona followed with a sac fly to bring home the second run of the inning, both of which were unearned to Kingham.
