ERIE- The Altoona Curve's scheduled doubleheader Tuesday
evening against the Erie SeaWolves at Jerry
in Erie was
postponed due to rain. The two clubs will now play twinbills on Wednesday
evening at 5:05 p.m. and Thursday afternoon at 12:05 p.m.
Heavy rains fell
in downtown Erie
starting at approximately 2 p.m. and continued until the game was
officially called at 6:20. The postponement means that for the
fourth time this season in four scheduled meetings at Jerry Uht Park the two clubs were unable to play

scheduled to open the 2007 regular season in Erie April 5-7, but all three of those
contests were postponed due to snow.
In addition to
doubleheaders scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, the two clubs will
also play three more twinbills over the course of the remainder of the
season -- August 31 and September 1 in Erie
and August 18 in Altoona.
one pitching match-up will feature Curve left-hander Josh Shortslef (1-6, 4.30)
righty Andrew Kown (2-3, 4.35). The game two pitching match-up is
undecided for both clubs.
