Cutters drop eighth game in ten tries
Starter Delvin Perez had a rough outing as he allowed seven runs on six walks in three innings of work.
Chris Serritella hit his third home run in as many games to put the Cutters up 2-0 in the first. Serritella reached four times and finished 2-for-2 with two RBI.
But Perez immediately surrendered the lead in the bottom half, allowing a two-run double to Peter O'Brien to tie the game.
Perez settled down momentarily by getting nine of the next eleven out, but allowed five runs in the fourth to put the Crosscutters in a deep hole. A tough hop sent a grounder past Mitch Walding to score the go-ahead run, before Claudio Custodio hit a two-run double before scoring on a wild pitch. The Yankees then capped the inning on a sac fly by Matt Snyder.
The Cutters cut the deficit to 7-4 in the sixth. Yan Carlos Olmo scored on a passed ball and an error forced on the basepaths by Roman Quinn scored Logan Moore, but that would be it for the Cutters.
Williamsport drops to 8-12 and have lost eight of their last ten.
