Tony Renda doubled to left field to score Angelberth Montilla and give Auburn a 10-9, walk-off win over Williamsport on Saturday. The Crosscutters closed out their six-game road trip with a 3-3 record.
Williamsport entered the bottom of the ninth holding a 9-8 lead thanks to RBI singles from both Chace Numata and Brian Pointer. Steven Inch held Auburn scoreless over the seventh and eighth innings.
Matt Sisto came in for the save in the ninth but gave up a leadoff home run to Shawn Pleffner to tie the game at 9-9. After giving up a single to Montilla, Renda, the Washington Nationals' second-round pick out of Cal, doubled to score Montilla.
Williamsport's Chris Serritella had a brilliant game, going 3 for 4 with a pair of doubles and five RBIs. It was the third time this year a Crosscutters player has had at least four RBIs in a game. Mitch Walding has both and four and six-RBI game.
Serritella, a fourth-round pick out of Southern Illinois, doubled homer Pointer in the first inning. He then singled in the fifth to bring home both Roman Quinn and Pointer. He drove in both Quinn and Pointer again in the sixth with a double.
Pointer was 2 for 3 with three runs scored and a pair of RBIs. Pointer hit .368 on the six-game road trip after sitting out the final game of the Cutters' season-opening homestand.
Jordan Guth allowed four runs - two earned - in his five innings, which was his longest start of the season. Three Williamsport relievers - Nic Hanson, Inch and Sisto - combined to surrender eight hits and six runs in three-plus innings. The loss was the second this season for Sisto.
The Cutters return home today for a three-game series against Mahoning Valley. First pitch is set for 5:05 p.m.
