Roman Quinn hit what appeared to be a sure home run to right field in the sixth inning. And instead of watching his work, Quinn zoomed around the bases.
The hustle paid off when the ball smacked the top of the right-field fence and Quinn was standing on third before the second baseman caught the relay throw. Quinn scored a batter later to give Williamsport a 2-1 lead that held up and its second consecutive win over Jamestown.
"I thought right off the bat it was gone," Quinn said. "It's been my luck all season, though, hitting off the top of the wall. I'll take a triple, though."
Tyler Greene of the Crosscutters forces out Pedro Mendoza of Jamestown Tuesday at Bowman Field.
"I thought he hit a home run," Williamsport manager Andy Tracy said. "He's an amazing player and put a good swing on the ball."
Quinn went on to convert a 6-4 double play in the ninth when he used his speed to grab a grounder up the middle. Quinn then tug second and fired a laser to first base for the double play.
"It was big," Quinn said. "I thought they were going to square, but then I saw the runner take off. I knew it was a hit-and-run all day and just got to the right place at the right time."
The Cutters offense, which struggled most of the night was led by Quinn, who also doubled in the fourth. Quinn reached third, but was stranded after two groundouts.
Williamsport's offense was limited to just four hits on the night, with Quinn getting two and Hoppy and Logan Moore adding a single apiece.
"I'm proud of these guys," Tracy said. "We've struggled at times, but we've worked our tails off."
The Jammers struck first when Avery Romero opened the sixth with a single through the infield. Romero advanced to second on a wild pitch. Yeison Hernandez and Juancito Martinez then hit back-to-back singles to take a one run lead.
