Cutters offense comes alive in first win since All-Star break
Williamsport used a five-run sixth inning to beat Jamestown 7-3 Saturday night at Bowman Field.
Kevin Quaranto went 2-for-4 with two RBI on a night in which every Crosscutter reached base.
Williamsport also took advantage of wild Jammers' pitching. Three Cutters scored on wild pitches or passed balls. Six of 14 runs scored against Jamestown this season have come on wild pitches or passed balls.
Kevin Brady got the start for Williamsport, but fell an out shy of qualifying for the win. He allowed two runs in 4.2 innings, before Steven Inch took over to get the win.
Williamsport took the lead in the first inning. Roman Quinn reached on an error, stole second and advanced to third on a Mitch Walding groundout. Cameron Perkins then drove Quinn in to open the scoring.
The Cutters doubled their lead in the second when Quaranto plated Larry Greene on a groundball single up the middle.
But Jamestown battled back and tied the game with two runs in the fifth inning. Mike Vaughn hit a solo home run off of Brady before Michael Main hit a double to drive in Juancito Martinez.
Williamsport's five-run sixth inning was the difference. Yan Carlos Olmo drove in Chris Serritella with a line drive single to right field. Quaranto then plated Greene again to make it 4-2. Olmo and Quaranto would then both score on wild pitches, before Jiandido Tromp came home on a passed ball.
The Crosscutters allowed one run in the ninth, but held on for a 7-3 win. The victory snaps a four-game losing streak and improves their record to 20-37
