Ramon Del Orbe pitched his best game of the New York-Pennsylvania League season and the Jamestown Jammers scored most of their runs in one inning to end the four-game homestand with a 2-2 record against the Williamsport Crosscutters on Thursday night.
Del Orbe (2-5) went seven innings and allowed only four hits, two runs, a walk and six strikeouts as the Jammers prevailed over the Crosscutters, 5-2, in the New York-Penn League's Pinckney Division at Diethrick Park.
Del Orbe and Frankie Reed, just back from Greensboro of the South Atlantic League, set down the final 13 Williamsport batters en route to improving the home record to 13-19 for the season.
Reed pitched the final two scoreless innings and struck out three in gaining his second save of the year.
The Jammers erased a 2-0 deficit by scoring all the runs they needed during a four-run third inning against Kevin Brady (1-3).
Cody Keefer drove in the first run via an infield out after Yeison Hernandez, Juancito Martinez and Michael Main had singled to fill the bases.
Viosergy Rosa doubled home a pair of runs to give the Jammers a 3-2 lead and Michael Vaughn doubled in another run for a 4-2 edge.
The Jammers scored their last run in the fourth when Martinez beat out an infield single to third and Mitch Walding threw it away putting Martinez at third.
Michael Main delivered Martinez and went to second on left fielder Larry Greene's error.
At that point, Brady was relieved by Andre Kinder, who, along with Matthew Sisto. held the Jammers scoreless the rest of the way.
The Crosscutters got their two runs in the top of the third when Quinn doubled in Zach Taylor and Tyler Greene, who had both singled. Quinn was thrown out trying for a triple on a throw from right-fielder Main to second baseman Anthony Gomez to third sacker Pedro Mendoza.
Main, Gomez and Rosa all contributed two hits in the 10-hit attack for the Jammers.
With the win, the Jammers raised their overall record to 27-35 and tied Mahoning Valley, which lost a 2-1 decision in 11 innings to Batavia, for fourth place in the Pinckney Division.
The loss dropped Williamsport further into the cellar of the Pinckney Division with a 24-39 record.
Jamestown goes on a six-game road trip with three games each at State College and at Williamsport.
