Aaron Civale leads way in 5-1 Hillcats win

Sam Haggerty had two doubles and scored twice in his first two at-bats, which was plenty of support for Aaron Civale. The right-hander went seven innings for his third consecutive start and held Down East to one run on six hits in a 5-1 Hillcats victory Sunday evening.

Hillcats starters have gone at least seven innings in six of the team’s last 10 contests and 33 times overall. The ‘Cats own a 26-7 record in those ballgames. Civale (7-2) struck out four and walked none. Jared Robinson and Luke Eubank each worked one scoreless inning in relief.

Lynchburg tallied its final three runs in the sixth inning when five straight reached base. Calica walked before Sicnarf Loopstokand Martin Cervenka had back-to-back singles. Cervenka’s base hit drove in a run, and two more scored when Connor Marabell reached on a fielding error by the second baseman.
