A file photo
Game Highlights: August 11, 2016 –The Williamsport Crosscutters were able to take game one of their doubleheader against the Renegades after waiting out a rain delay, but the second game was unable to be completed as the Cutters wrap their season series against Hudson Valley.

After a three hour and thirty-eight minute rain delay, Julian Garcia was dominate out of the Cutters bullpen, scattering five hits and a walk over 3.1 innings. The right-hander struck out a season-high six batters while taking a no-decision.

Will Hibbs took over for Garcia with two out in the 5th inning. Hibbs worked out of jams in the 5th and the 6th innings. Then slammed the door in the top of the 7th with a clean frame. Hibbs earned his 3rd win of the season, striking out a pair over 2.1 innings.

Brett Barbier provided the only offense in game one of the doubleheader, plating Henri Lartigue with an RBI single through a drawn-in infield in the bottom of the sixth. The RBI was the 7th of the season for Barbier.

The second game would be suspended, tied 2-2, at 1:13 a.m. in the top of the 6th inning after a thirty-minute delay. Since Hudson Valley and Williamsport will not meet up again this regular season, per league rule, the game goes as a “no-game” and will officially go as a tie that will not be displayed in the standings.
