Curry's home run came on the seventh pitch of his at-bat against Hot Rods (4-5) right-handed starter Caleb Sampen, a Brownsburg, Ind., native. Curry, a University of Georgia alum who joined the team from Extended Spring Training on Thursday, drove in catcher Blake Hunt , who had singled, and third baseman Luis Almanzar , who drew a 10-pitch, two-out walk.

 

TinCaps (6-3) starter Gabe Mosser was through three scoreless innings by the time the rainy conditions made the game unplayable.
