The Erie SeaWolves are 20-20, but that has nothing to do with their collective vision.
The SeaWolves’ Eastern League record reverted to .500 when the Altoona Curve won 6-3 Saturday night at Peoples Natural Gas Field. At 18-22, Altoona now has a chance to sweep the weekend series a week after Erie did the same to them over four games at Jerry Uht Park.

Erie was aided by three Altoona errors, but only managed four hits. One of them was Jordan Lennerton’s solo home run off Curve starter Shairon Martis, who formerly pitched for the Washington Nationals.
Altoona did most of its damage off SeaWolves starter Kelvin De La Cruz, who allowed the hosts’ first four runs over five innings. Tony Sanchez was the big hitter for the Curve with two hits, a walk and a run scored.
Erie will try to avert a series sweep Sunday at 6 p.m., and then return to Uht Park for Monday’s opener of an eight-game homestand.
