Curve, Marauders in playoffs tonight

The Altoona Curve host the Harrisburg Senators at tonight in the first game of a best-of-five semifinal series. Both teams go with their lefthanded aces: Rudy Owens (12-6, 2.46) for the good and Tom Milone (12-6, 2.85) for the bad. The start time at Blair County Ballpark is 6:30 p.m.

This is the first time the two clubs have met in a playoff series. I would say they are geographic rivals but I suspect my readers would not be unbelievably happy to find out Western PA is close to Eastern PA.

Jeff Locke (3-2, 3.59) has been announced as the Game 2 starter for Altoona for tomorrow, while the poorly prepapred Senators have no further plans after tonight.

The Bradenton Marauders lead the Charlotte Stone Crabs 1-0 and need to win one of the next two to move on to the Florida State League championship series. Bradenton goes with the righthander Brian Leach (9-9, 3.85) against Stone Crabs ace Joseph Cruz (13-6, 2.85).
