Reading -

The Fightin Phils swept a four game series against Harrisburg last week, and were looking to keep the good times rolling and sweep a three game weekend series with Altoona on Sunday.  Aaron Altherr accounted for Reading's two runs on the night, hitting a sacrifice fly in the 1st and his 12th homerun of the season in the 4th.  But the Curve would erupt, plating 13 runs on 14 hits as the win streak comes to a crashing end, 13-2.  Reading begins a three game series in Harrisburg on Tuesday night.
