The first inning put Jamestown into a 3-0 hole as Dave Hollins, the son of former Philadelphia Phillies Dave Hollins, drove in a run with a double. Another run scored on an error and a third on a sacrifice fly by Jeff Palczewski.
Jamestown came back with two runs in the fourth when Jake Sisson was aboard on a fielder's choice and Adam Westley cracked an RBI triple and later scored on an infield out by Cortland Haines.
The Red Raiders threatened in the seventh inning on a pinch single by Connor Stam. An error and a passed ball put the tying runs on second and third, but the final batter grounded out to shortstop to end it.
