ITS DO OR DIE TIME FOR THE ALTOONA CURVE. NELLIE RODRIGUEZ HIT A WALK OFF HOME RUN IN THE 10TH INNING LAST NIGHT TO GIVE AKRON A 2-1 WIN IN GAME 2 OF THE BEST OF 5 DIVISION SERIES AT CANAL PARK. THE LOSS PUTS THE CURVE DOWN 2 GAMES TO NONE, AND THEY WILL TRY TO STAVE OFF ELIMINATION TONITE WHEN THE TEAMS COME TO PEOPLES NATURAL GAS FIELD FOR GAME 3.

 

THE LONE RUN FOR ALTOONA CAME FROM THE VERY FIRST BATTER OF THE GAME, WHEN COLE TUCKER LED OFF WITH A HOME RUN. BUT THAT WAS ALL ALTOONA COULD MUSTER FOR THE NEXT 10 INNINGS. TOUGH LUCK PITCHER EDUARDO VERA GAVE UP ONY 2 HITS IN 8 INNINGS OF WORK. MATT ECKELMAN SUFFERED THE LOSS.

 

JAMES MARVEL WILL TAKE THE MOUND FOR ALTOONA TO TRY AND KEEP THE SEASON ALIVE, FACING ZACH PLEASAC. FIRST PITCH IS SET FOR 6:00.

 

IUP IS NOW 2-0 ON THE YOUNG FOOTBALL SEASON. THE CRIMSON HAWKS BEAT MILLERSVILLE LAST NIGHT 41-7 TO BEGIN P.S.A.C. CONFERENCE PLAY AT MILLER STADIUM. THE HAWKS SCORED ALL OF THEIR POINTS IN THE 1ST HALF OF LAST NIGHTS GAME.

 

  1. FRANCIS AND JUNIATA COLLEGE WILL BOTH BE AT HOME TOMORROW. THE RED FLASH WILL HOST DELAWARE STATE AT NOON, WHILE JUNIATA WELCOMES FRANKLIN & MARSHALL FOR A 1:00 KICKOFF.
