Game of the DayFisher Cats vs. Curve – New Hampshire (68-55) needed a late rally last night to split their doubleheader against Altoona (56-66) and halt their three game slide. This afternoon they will look for a split of their four game series against the Curve as Nestor Molina gets his second start for the Cats. Molina was brilliant in his first start with New Hampshire last Friday after being called up from Class-A Dunedin. In 6 innings versus Akron, Molina allowed just 1 earned run on 4 hits and a walk and struck out 8 opponents along the way. The Cats will be leaning heavily on Molina down the stretch in light of their departed big guns. He will face off against E.L. All-Star Aaron Pribanic who gets his 24th start with the Curve today. Pribanic has gone 3-1 with a 3.38 ERA over his last five starts, which included a game where he got shelled for 6 runs and 12 hits in 3 1/3 innings. His strikeouts per nine innings is a dismal 4.0 and his 147 hits allowed this season is the fourth most in the league…The Fisher Cats started the month of August with four straight wins, followed by three straight loses, followed by another four game win streak and then another three game losing streak. They are 9-6 on the month….The Fisher Cats lead the season series 3-2 against the Curve.
