Hartford- The Eastern League game between the Hartford Yard Goats and Altoona Curve Friday night at Dunkin' Donuts Park was suspended because of rain, in the last of the fourth inning. The Yard Goats were trailing the Pittsburgh Pirates affiliate, 2-0, with one out and a runner at second base, when the steady rain throughout the game turned into a downpour. The umpires waited one hour, before making their decision.
