Scrappers fall to the Crosscutters in the 4th

Posted: Updated:

NILES, Ohio- Scrappers fans at Eastwood Field got their July 4th fireworks. The Scrappers, however, lacked firepower, falling to the Williamsport Crosscutters 11-6.

Williamsport wasted no time getting the bats going on Thursday. A RBI single by Crosscutter 1st bagger Logan Pierce pushed the lead to 6-0 in the 3rd inning. Despite the deficit, newly acquired Scrapper Cody Ferrell stole the show, legging out an inside the park homer in the bottom half of the third.

By the eighth inning, the Scrappers trailed 9-1. Nevertheless, the Scrappers started a rally, as four runners crossed, including an RBI double by Claudio Bautista and an RBI single by DH James Roberts.

Still that wasn't enough, as Williamsport relief man Lino Martinez finished off the Scrappers to give the Crosscutters the 11-6 victory. The win goes to Williamsport hurler Chris Nichols, who now holds a 1-0 record. The loss is credited to Scrappers righty Rob Whitenack, who falls to 1-2 on the season.
