Portland struck first off of starter Adrian Sampson. Former Curve infielder Stefan Welch clocked a two-run home run to right that also scored Sean Coyle who was plunked by a pitch to lead off the second.
Altoona earned a run back for their only score of the game in the bottom of the inning. After Willy Garcia hit a two-out infield single, he scored one batter later when Gift Ngoepe hit a single to right that Garcia went first-to-third on but was able to score after a throwing error by Portland’s defense.
The Curve and Sea Dogs will resume the game on Thursday night at Peoples Natural Gas Field at 5 p.m. and will complete Wednesday’s suspended game to a full nine innings. After the suspended game is completed, Thursday’s regularly scheduled game will be played to only seven innings after a 30 minute intermission.
