The Williamsport Crosscutters swept a double-header against the Tri-City ValleyCats

The Williamsport Crosscutters grabbed both ends of a double-header against the Tri-City ValleyCats Wednesday. The cutters offense scored a combined 15 runs in the two games and upped their season record to 7-6.

The Crosscutters offense was alive and well as they plated a season-high eight runs in game one and seven more in game two to complete the double-header sweep of Tri-City. Williamsport took the first game 8-5 and followed that up with a 7-3 win in game two.

Henri Lartigue powered the offense in game one, going 2-for-3 with 3 RBI, including a two-run single in the top of the fifth, allowing the Cutters to take the lead for good. David Martinelli and Luis Encarnacion also had two hits for Williamsport. Encarnacion drove in a run and scored two, while Martinelli drove in a run and scored one, hitting his second double of the season.

Despite giving up a season-high four runs, Ranger Suarez (1-0) earned his first win of the season. The 20-year old right-hander allowed his first home run of the season, which was also the first allowed by Cutters pitching. Grant Dyer worked two innings to get his first professional save, but he too, surrendered a home run in the top of the ninth.

In game two, Darick Hall hit his second home run of the season, and Luke Maglich launched his first professional home run to lead the Cutters offense. Hall and Maglich each had two hits in the nightcap, as did Lartigue, who upped his season average to .357. William Cuicas provided a two-run double to highlight the scoring.

Seranthony Dominguez earned his first win, working five innings, allowing two unearned runs on just one one hit and two walks, while striking out four.
