Spikes Crush Crosscutters Again Wednesday Night

Washington drives in 3 more, as Spikes down Williamsport 9-3.
STATE COLLEGE, CENTRE COUNTY - The State College Spikes put together another spectacular offensive display on Wednesday night, as David Washington knocked in three more runs and Ronald Castillo collected four hits in a 9-3 victory over the Williamsport Crosscutters at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.
 
The win was the Spikes’ (37-23) sixth in a row, and improved their home record on the year to 23-7. State College remains tied atop the Pinckney Division standings with Jamestown, and both teams share the New York-Penn League’s best record.
 
Washington drove in two runs with his fourth-inning double and another with a single in the fifth to boost his RBI total on the year to 43. The All-Star first baseman is now just one RBI shy of the single-season franchise record held by Nathan Southard, who notched 44 of them in 2006.
 
Castillo went 4-for-5 and produced a double, an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored on the evening. It was the Dominican outfielder’s second four-hit game against Williamsport (29-31) this season, as he also went 4-for-5 on June 19 at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.
 
Five State College players produced multi-hit performances. Brett Wiley scored three runs and stole a pair of bases.
 
Arturo Reyes (1-2) made another quality start for State College, going six innings for the victory. Reyes allowed two runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out one.
 
Williamsport starter Mitch Gueller (3-7) took his league-leading seventh loss of the year after allowing six runs, four earned, on ten hits and three walks.
 
The Spikes have produced 19 runs and 30 hits over the last two nights against the Crosscutters. State College also went 7-for-17 with runners in scoring position during Wednesday’s contest.
