Altoona Curve 11, Erie SeaWolves 3 (F/7)
The other half of Erie's doubleheader was a rough one, with Austin Kubitza getting left in as a sacrificial lamb while Altoona teed off. Joe Mantiply finally came to the rescue, but it was a dismal day for the AA affiliate.

Another day, another extra-inning game for Lakeland.
