By Williamsport Crosscutters | August 13, 2014 10:03 PM ET

Wednesday night at Susquehanna Bank Park at Historic Bowman Field dropped both ends of a doubleheader to the Batavia Muckdogs 5-2 and 4-1.

In game one, the Cutters only mustered four base hits and two runs in a 5-2 loss to Batavia.

Former Cutters reliever Ramon Oviedo replaced Batavia starting pitcher Michael Mader and promptly walked Wilson Garcia. Rhys Hoskins grounded into a force out retiring Garcia at second and Hoskins reached first.

Derek Campbell was called out on strikes, Wilmer Oberto walked and Hoskins moved to second.

Robinson Torres was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

Batavia went back to the bullpen and summoned Josh Hodges to replace Oviedo. Sean McHugh doubled on the first pitch he saw from Hodges inside the bag at third and down the left field line Hoskins and Oberto scored to make it 5-2.

Jiandido Tromp had two hits for the Crosscutters in the loss.

In game two, Williamsport jumped on Batavia starter Scott Squier for a run in the bottom of the first, with one out Jiandido Tromp singled to center field followed by a Wilson Garcia single to center fielder that moved Tromp to third.

Rhys Hoskins plated a run with a fielder's choice to second base that scored Tromp to put the Cutters in front 1-0.

Squier then retired eleven consecutive batters before a single by Jan Hernandez in the bottom of the fifth inning.

The Cutters loaded the bases in the ninth inning but failed to score off Batavia closer Juancito Martinez who recorded his sixth save.

By being swept the Williamsport Crosscutters fall to (26-33) and have lost four games in a row.

The Crosscutters conclude the 3-game series with Batavia tomorrow night at 7:05 p.m. with Cutters Collectible Pin Giveaway #2 featuring Rhashan, Director of Smiles, plus Thirsty Thursday and Hoss's Knothole Gang Night.
