Game 4 vs. Altoona: Lineups and Notes
The Senators and Altoona Curve finish out their season-opening four game series Sunday afternoon at FNB field. The Senators have lost two of their first three games after splitting a doubleheader Saturday night. The Senators finished 7-10 against the Curve last season, 6-3 at FNB field.
Austen Williams gets the call for the Senators looking to even their season record at .500. The 2014 sixth round selection out of Texas State University aims to build on his experience last year in Harrisburg where he went 1-7 with a 5.68 ERA before being reassigned to High-A Potomac where he finished the season.
JT Brubaker takes the mound for Altoona in the series finale. The 23-year-old is making his double-A debut. The right-hander split time with West Virginia and Bradenton in 2016, going 6-11 with a 4.44 ERA in 26 starts between the two levels. The New Carlisle, Ohio native pitched collegiately at Akron for three seasons, before being drafted in the 6th round by Pittsburgh in the 2015 MLB Draft.
