The Curve answered quickly in the top of the fifth inning as three of the first four Curve batters reached base. Angel Gonzalez led off the inning with a double, Gorkys Hernandez then followed with a single. Gonzalez would score on a Jim Negrych groundout and Jose Tabata singled in Hernandez to tie the game at two runs apiece.
The SeaWolves then began to pull away adding a run in the sixth on an Andy Dirks single and then adding three more runs in the seventh on hits by Scram, Iorg, and Mike Hollimon and the SeaWolves then had a 6-2 lead. Iorg finished the night 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI.

RHP Mike Dubee came on and threw a scoreless eighth allowing no hits and striking out one.
Tabata and Hernandez led the Curve bats Tuesday with Tabata going 2-for-3 with an RBI and Hernandez had a 2-for-4 night with a double and a run scored.
