Aeros left-hander David Huff earned Eastern League Pitcher of the Week honors Monday, a nod to his standout performance last week against Altoona. Last Thursday's outing was a seven-inning complete-game shutout in which he allowed just one runner to advance to second base in allowing just three hits and a walk. Huff is 3-1 on the season and leads the league with a 2.14 ERA and ranks seventh in strikeouts with 43.
BIG LEAGUE - Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Jack Wilson is expected to join the Curve today and play the remainder of the series in Akron. Wilson has been on the major league disabled list since April 4th with a torn muscle in his left calf.
HOT PINCKNEY - Aeros infielder Brandon Pinckney entered Monday's game with Altoona riding a season-high tying nine-game hitting streak. Over that span he has struck out just three times and is batting .375 (12-for-32) with three multi-hit games to raise his season batting average from .095 to 264.
