Game of the Day - Fisher Cats @ Altoona - It's a battle of teams with identical 68-50 records on the season. Altoona sits on top of the Western division with their record, while the Fisher Cats are in second place in the Eastern Divsion. Both teams have to be feeling pretty secure and confident that they will make the playoffs, so maybe we have a finals preview on our hands here. Of course we don't want to get ahead of ourselves, but it is always nice to have two teams, playing at such a high level, going head-to-head. Altoona took 2 of 3 in New Hampshire back in June and they took down the Fisher Cats again last night to start this series. The Cats are hopeful that they can sweep the rest of the weekend from the Curve and in doing so, provide themselves with the knowledge that they can go out and beat this team should they meet again in the postseason. The Curve have Justin Wilson on hill who is trying to improve on his 9-6 record. Wilson has allowed 3 or more runs in 5 of his last 6 starts. The Fisher Cats counter with Scott Richmond, who is making his first AA start on the season after going 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA in 5 games with Single-A Dunedin. He will know the lay of the land as he pitched for New Hampshire back in 2008 when he started 16 games for the Cats and compiled a 5-8 record. Richmond has plenty of MLB experience as well, making the bigs in '08 when he appeared in 5 games and in '09 when he made 27 appearances. The Fisher Cats are hoping he brings his big league stuff tonight.
