This is one seven that’s unlucky for the Erie SeaWolves.
Erie’s 46-53 record is its worst this season. Altoona is slightly better at 47-51 in the league’s Western Division.

Erie’s first loss doubled as the Double-A debut for starting pitcher Brian Flynn, who was promoted from Single-A Lakeland (Fla.) last Thursday. Flynn received a rude awakening, as he allowed all of the Curve’s runs and all eight of their hits.
Rawley Bishop drove in the SeaWolves’ lone run.
Bishop was among the Erie batters who were held hitless in the second game, when Altoona starter Mike Colla and two relievers combined on a three-hit shutout.
The Curve scored the game’s lone run in the bottom of the sixth on a Matt Curry RBI off SeaWolves reliever Robbie Weinhardt.
The teams will complete their weather-condensed series with another doubleheader Sunday. The first game is scheduled for 5 p.m.
