Jackson and Harris lead offensive surges in Crosscutters win
The Crosscutters got back to winning ways with a 6-1 win in five and-a-half innings at Trenton before the game was called for inclement weather. Left fielder Taylor Jackson and third baseman Daniel Harris IV combined for five hits and four RBI, leading Williamsport’s offense. The Crosscutters loaded the bases in the second inning for Jackson to rope a single to left field that scored two runs. A few batters later, second baseman Jesse Hall hit into a groundout that advanced a runner home for a 3-0 lead. Jackson came up again in the fifth inning with a sacrifice fly that scored Harris IV, who hit a leadoff triple. Williamsport added two more in the top of the sixth to extend the lead to 6-1. First baseman Carter Mize hit a sacrifice fly and Harris IV hit an RBI single. Starting pitcher Spencer Taack was excellent on the mound, striking out four batters over five innings while giving up one run on four hits. He currently has a 1.29ERA, tied for 10th in the Draft League.
