Scrappers lose early lead, fall to Crosscutters

Posted: Updated:

NILES, Ohio- Scrappers fans had much to be excited about early in Friday's game against the Williamsport Crosscutters. Indians 3rd round draft pick Dace Kime was making his first start out of Louisville. To add to that, 1st baseman Nellie Rodriguez drilled a two-run homer to give the Scrappers a 3-1 lead in the 1st inning.

The excitement quickly turned to despair. Crosscutters DH Jiandido Tromp would reach base on a fielding error by Robel Garcia, then come around to score to tie the ballgame at three runs apiece.

Three more runs would come in to score for Williamsport in the 6th off a wild pitch from Scrappers reliever Breily Puerta, and a RBI single by Crosscutter backstop Corey Bass. That base hit would give Williamsport a 6-3 lead, one they would not relinquish.

Shane Martin picks up the win for the Crosscutters. He now holds a 1-1 record on the year. Rob Marcello gets his first save of 2013. The loss would go to Puerta, his first of the season
