Cutters Finish 2019 in Suspended Tie Game
Williamsport, Penn. - The Crosscutters season finale on Monday afternoon resulted in an odd and somewhat unsatisfying finish to the 2019 season. With Williamsport and State College tied at 3-3 in the middle of the ninth inning the game was called due to rain thus denying the Cutters a chance for their second walk-off win of the series. The suspended game will not be completed and results in an end-of-season tie. All stats from the game count towards the final statistics.
Williamsport finishes the season at 32-43 including 22-16 in the second half of the campaign after going 10-27 in the first half.
Rudy Rott was 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored and Nicolas Torres added an RBI single as well.
Rafael Carvajal won the team's Pitcher of the Year award before the game and then entered in relief retiring 12 consecutive batters.
Corbin Williams became the fifth Crosscutter to win the NYPL Stolen Base Crown. His 30 swipes placed him one ahead of J.D. Orr who had 29.
Kendall Simmons finished with 12 home runs which is third-most in Crosscutters history and second-most in the New York-Penn League.
The Crosscutters 2020 Home Opener is Friday, June 19 against State College. The Cutters will open the 2020 season on the road at State College on Thursday, June 18. The full schedule for next season is available at Crosscutters.com
