The loss is the Crosscutters' fourth in a row and their second shutout in three games.
Chris Serritella had the Cutters only two knocks. He chopped a second-inning grounder off of Jammers' starter Helpi Reyes and legged out an infield single. In the ninth, Serritella found a hole on the right side for a seeing-eye single. The game could easily have been a no-hitter.
Despite dormant offense, the pitching, baserunning and defense were stout. The Crosscutters did not commit an error and stole four bases as Warner was strong for his second straight outing. He allowed three runs in six innings, but pitched better than those numbers indicate.
All three runs allowed came in the fifth inning with two outs. After Pedro Mendoza led off with an infield single, Warner got the next two batters on a pop-up and a strikeout. But Warner hit Yefri Perez in the helmet and the Jammers had some luck from there. Michael Main hit a flare to right to score Mendoza and Cody Keefer rolled a ball into right field to score Perez and Main.
Jon Musser impressed in the seventh inning, striking out the side on nine pitches. He did allow a run in the eighth inning, while Ramon Oviedo gave up one more in the ninth to cap the score at 5-0.
The Crosscutters drop to 19-37 and remain in sixth place in the Pinckney Division.
