The Cutters had given up the lead in the ninth, thanks largely to a pair of miscues on defense. Mitch Walding misplayed a grounder to third and allowed Austin Booker to reach. Later in the inning with runners at first and third and one out, Sam Roberts popped up an Andre Kinder pitch on the infield. Walding and Quinn both ranged over, but neither called for it. The ball fell to the turf and the bases were loaded. It also gave Jacob Tanis the extra out needed to send a sac fly to center for the eventual game winning run.
The miscue spoiled a great game for Quinn, who went 3-for-5 with a triple and both Williamsport runs.
It also spoiled three innings of solid relief by Kinder, who picked up his first loss despite not earning a run.
Jordan Guth got the start and allowed two runs in five innings. He also walked a batter, his first in 25 innings as a professional.
Quinn led off the bottom of the third with a triple to right. Pretty much anything scores the speedy Quinn from third, and Larry Greene knew it. He sent a grounder to first, and Vermont first baseman Miguel Marte tried to gun down Quinn at the plate, but the throw was not in time as the Cutters took a 1-0 lead.
After Vermont took a 2-1 lead in the fifth, Williamsport answered. Again, it all started with Quinn. He led off with a single and stole second. A Cameron Perkins slap single later, and the game was tied. The steal was Quinn's team-high 11th of the season.
And the Cutters had a chance to come back in the bottom of the ninth. Quinn again led off and reached second on a balk by Lake Monster reliever Austin House, but neither Greene nor Serritella could get the ball out of the infield as Quinn was left stranded at third.
The loss gives Williamsport their sixth consecutive series loss and drops their record to 10-18.
