CURVE, Pa. - Wednesday's game between the Altoona Curve and the Richmond Flying Squirrels has been postponed due to rain. The game will be made up as part of a double-header on Saturday, August 25.
The make-up double-header on August 25 will begin at 4 p.m. and will consist of two seven-inning games at Peoples Natural Gas Field.
