There were 90 members of the Western New York Muckdogs at the game Sunday. They ran out with the players for the National Anthem and talked to players like Troy Johnston (27).
BATAVIA – The Batavia Muckdogs dropped a game to the Williamsport Crosscutters, 10-3 to start a three-game home stand but retained the half-game lead of first place as West Virginia lost on Sunday as well.
Batavia (37-31) had eight hits but Williamsport was powered by shortstop Bryson Stott, the first round draft pick this year of the Philadelphia Phillies, who went 3-for-5.
Batavia’s offense was led by Milton Smith II who had two hits while Troy Johnston had a RBI double and scored, Nic Ready, Sean Reynolds, Harrison Dinicola and Andrew Turner had hits.
Eli Villalobos struck out four in three innings while Joey Steele struck out three in two innings.
