The Batavia Muckdogs remain much in the hunt for the Pinckney division crown after taking three of four games from the Williamsport Crosscutters at Dwyer Stadium over two days of double-headers.
The series put the Muckdogs, now 37-27, three games ahead of Williamsport in the wild-card race.
Tonight at Dwyer, Batavia split the double-header, taking the first game 6-3 and dropping the second 2-1.
Nick McCully (3-2) picked up the win going six innings (of a seven inning game) giving up seven hits and three runs.
First-year pro Mike Reid picked up his second save dispensing of Williamsport in the seventh on quick three outs.
First baseman Victor Sanchez had three hits and scored twice, while catcher Audey Perez had two hits and two RBIs and Jon Rodriquez tripled and drove in two runs. Nick Longmire scored two runs.
In the second game, reliever Keith Butler was unable to protect a one-run lead in the seventh inning. Butler gave up two hits and two runs.
Batavia's lone run came on a lead off home run by Chris Edmondson. It was Edmondson's first homer as a Muckdog. He hit six earlier in the year with Johnson City. Edmondson is hitting .324 in 18 games with Batavia.
Batavia managed only three hits in the second game against three Williamsport pitchers.
Tomorrow the Muckdogs travel to Pennsylvania for the first of five straight games against State College (32-33). The final three games, starting Sunday at 5:05 p.m., are at Dwyer Stadium.
