Cutters game in Auburn is suspended

After Williamsport scored four runs in the top of the fourth inning, heavy rains and lightning forced the Williamsport Crosscutters to have their game against the Auburn Doubledays on Wednesday evening suspended.

It’s the second suspended game of the season for the Crosscutters.

The game was officially suspended by the umpires at 8:25 p.m. and will be resumed tonight at 5 p.m. The regularly scheduled game for Thursday will follow the completion of the suspended game and will only be a seven-inning contest.

As of Wednesday, Williamsport’s Rafael Marchan had the New York-Penn League’s sixth-best batting average at .301 and is the only Crosscutter hitting above .300.

Ben Pelletier leads Williamsport with 65 hits, which is third-most in the league, behind only Mahoning Valley’s Tyler Freeman (93) and Lowell’s Devlin Granberg (67).

Williamsport’s road trip with Auburn is their final road series of the season. The Crosscutters return to Bowman Field on Saturday for a three-game homestand against the State College Spikes to close out the season.
