BATAVIA - Michael Fransoso's first professional home run couldn't have come at a better time for the Jamestown Jammers on Wednesday afternoon.
Fransoso clouted a three-run home run to cap a seven-run outburst in the ninth inning as the Jammers prevailed over the Batavia Muckdogs, 9-7, in the Pinckney Division of the New York-Penn League.
The ninth inning started with James Wooster, a former Jammers outfielder, pitching for Batavia, which had a comfortable 7-2 advantage.
Wildness plagued Wooster as he walked Jin-De Jhang, Jeff Roy and gave up a single to Erich Weiss before walking Edwin Espinal to force in the first run.
That was all for Wooster and Dane Stone (1-1) was brought in. Elvis Escobar greeted him with an RBI single followed by Adam Frazier's two-run double to slice the margin to 7-6.
Then Fransoso hit his home run to right field to bring in three runs as the Jammers pulled out an incredible victory.
Roberto Espinosa pitched a scoreless ninth, although he walked a batter, to gain his third save and the win went to Henry Hirsch (1-0).
The Jammers opened the scoring in the second inning as Danny Collins doubled for the 11th time and eventually scored on an infield out by Weiss.
Batavia got four runs in the third inning on RBI doubles by Justin Bohn and Avery Romero, an RBI single by Chad Wallach and a sacrifice fly by Feliz Munoz to take a 4-1 lead.
Jamestown got a run back in the fourth when Jhang singled in Harold Ramirez.
The Muckdogs then added three runs in the fifth to take a 7-2 advantage as Romero doubled in two runs and another crossed on an error.
Nine different players scored for the Jammers and Fransoso and Ramirez had two hits each.
Ryan Newell, also a former Jammer, pitched a three-hitter for six innings for Batavia.
The teams play tonight at 7:05 at Diethrick Park.
