The Cutters won in walk-off fashion in a 2-1 game with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers Thursday night.
Robinson Torres played the role of hero as he singled in Chase Harris for the winning run.
Starting pitcher Alejandro Arteaga was solid over six innings, allowing one earned run and striking out eight.
The win was Williamsport’s 30th of the season, making them tied for third and nine games back in the division.
The Lakewood BlueClaws continued to be plagued by bad weather Thursday night as their game against the West Virginia Power was cancelled due to rain.
The Claws begin a series with the Greensboro Grasshopper Friday.
Catcher Gabriel Lino and the Threshers attempted a comeback late in Thursday’s game against the Daytona Cubs, but it fell short as Clearwater lost 5-4.
Lino’s two-run blast in the top of the ninth made things interesting, but his 2-for-4 effort with three RBIs was not enough.
The Threshers’ pitching combination of Jordan Guth and Aaron Baker gave up three home runs in the game.
READING FIGHTIN’ PHILS:
Ryan O’Sullivan moved to 5-8 as he took the loss against the Bowie Baysox Thursday.
The starting pitcher allowed five runs on nine hits in a 6-2 final score.
The Fightin’ Phils runs were driven in by Peter Lavin and Edgar Duran.

John Mayberry, Jr. went 0-for-3 with a walk in his second rehab appearance.
Sean O’Sullivan started for the Pigs and went seven innings while giving up two runs and striking out six.
