Seven-Run fourth inning propels Cutters to blowout win over Spikes
By Williamsport Crosscutters
June 21, 2012
The Williamsport Crosscutters scored seven runs in the fourth inning to beat the visiting State College Spikes 13-1.
Williamsport took a 2-1 lead when Chris Serritella singled home Brian Pointer in the first inning. Serritella would go 3-for-4 overall with two RBI.
Cutters then scored seven in the fourth off of Spikes’ relievers Dalton Friend and Justin Ennis. Mitch Walding led off with a double and scored the first run of the inning on an RBI single by Tyler Greene. Friend was lifted when Pointer drove home Greene to give Williamsport a 5-1 lead. Walding then with his second hit of the inning made it 9-1, when he crushed a ball off the wall in center to score two more runs.
Walding finished 4-for-5 with four RBI.
The highlight of the night may have still been by Roman Quinn in the top of the seventh. Spikes’ DH Jacob Stallings grounded a ball off the second base bag. The ball caromed towards the first base side, where Quinn snatched it out of the air, made a 360-degree spin and completed the throw to first. Overall, Quinn finished 2-for-6 with a double, and forced two errors on the basepaths.
Larry Greene reached base on his first four plate appearances and doubled home Brock Stassi to give Williamsport a 10-1 lead in the fifth inning.
The Crosscutters plated three more in the seventh. Walding doubled his RBI-total for the day and increased the lead to 13-1 with a two-run single in the inning.
Hoby Milner picked up the win, facing only nine batters in three scoreless innings of work.
