Ryan Westmoreland was 3-3 with his third homerun, and came a double short of a cycle, driving in the go ahead runs in the top of the 9th, as the Spinners charged past the State College Spikes 8-5. Westmoreland reached base all 5 times he stepped to the plate, Wilfred Pichardo was 3 for 4 and Chris McGuiness and Derrik Gibson added 2 RBI’s to lead the Spinners offense. Alex Wilson went the first three innings, striking out four, but also allowing his first run of the year, on back to back triples by Justin Byler and Pat Irvine. Kyle Rutter picked up his first professional victory in relief and Dennis Neuman pitched a scoreless ninth for his second save. Westmoreland has now reached base safely in all 25 games he has played this season.
The Spinners look to continue their magic tommorow night as they face State College at 7:05. Yeiper Castillo (2-1, 2.64) looks to grab his third win of the season.
