Villar homers, drives in six as Flying Squirrels rout Curve 15-3

  • 0

David Villar collected his team-best 15th home run of the season Saturday night in the Squirrels’ 14-4 victory over Erie at The Diamond. He added his 16th in Sunday’s 5-2 win over the Seawolves. That’s two off the franchise record of 18, reached by Jarrett Parker and Mario Lisson.

David Villar homered and drove in six runs to lead an offensive explosion for the Richmond Flying Squirrels in a 15-3 rout of the Altoona Curve in Altoona, Pa., on Saturday night.

Villar was 3 for 5 with three runs scored for Richmond (52-49), which totaled 13 hits and 10 walks. He doubled in the first inning to drive in two, and he hit a three-run home run — his team-high 18th of the season — in the eighth.

Will Wilson also homered and knocked in four. Frankie Tostado added three RBIs.

Ronnie Williams (6-4) pitched four scoreless innings of relief, earning the win for the Flying Squirrels.

Travis McGregor (3-8) allowed six runs over two innings and was charged with the loss for Altoona (52-47).

The Curve pitching staff also issued 10 walks.

Sunday night’s Squirrels-Curve game was halted because of rain in the fourth inning and then canceled.
