The Senators tallied four runs in the first on their way to an 8-2 win Friday night at Altoona. The runs in the first were all Senators starter Cade Cavalli needed. Three home runs by the Senators accounted for five of their eight runs. The win snapped the Senators six-game losing streak.
ON CAPITAL HILL
Cade Cavalli went 6.2 dominant innings. He struck out 12, walked one and allowed just two hits. He retired 16 straight batters before walking the final hitter he faced. He struck out six of the final eight batters he faced.
Ryan Tapani followed Cavalli and went 1.1 innings allowing two runs on two hits. He also struck out two in his second outing since being activated from the injured list.
Reid Schaller pitched the ninth allowing a single in a scoreless ninth inning.
