The Erie SeaWolves’ Eastern League season was defined by strange baseball scenarios sprinkled amid numerous losses.
They experienced both with the last batter of their last game for 2012.
Altoona beat Erie 2-1 Monday afternoon at Jerry Uht Park. The Curve recorded the game’s final out when Daniel Fields’ check swing on a pitch in the dirt resulted in a soft grounder back to reliever Victor Black.
The cricket-type play concluded the SeaWolves’ 57-84 season, the third worst record by any of their teams since the franchise joined the league in 1999. Only the 2000 (47-94) and 2002 (52-89) teams were worse.
