The Altoona Curve knocked off the Harrisburg Senators 6-0 Sunday night at PNG Field. Five Senators finished with a hit and Austin Voth struck out eight in the shutout loss.

The Curve jumped to an early lead with a three-run first, highlighted by a two-run triple by Casey Hughston. The club added single runs in the second and third on a pair of RBI singles to expand their advantage to 5-0. 

Altoona capped their scoring when Cole Tucker hit a solo home run in the seventh to make it 6-0 Curve.

Austin Coley (6-4) worked seven shutout innings to earn the win while Voth (3-4) took the loss after allowing five runs over his six innings while striking out eight.

Khayyan Norfork doubled in the fifth for the only Senators extra base hit of the night while Jose Marmolejos had his 17-game hitting streak snapped, which is tied for the sixth longest streak in Senators history. 

The Senators and Curve play the final game of the regular season Monday afternoon. Taylor Hill gets the ball for the Senators opposite Curve starter JT Brubaker. First pitch is scheduled for 12:00 pm at PNG Field.
