AUBURN - Defense was not in style at Auburn in the New York-Penn League on Sunday afternoon as both the host Doubledays and Jamestown Jammers committed three errors each. But in the runs department, Auburn came out ahead for a 5-2 victory.
The loss ended Jamestown's winning streak at five. However, the Jammers retained their five-game lead in the Pinckney Division because both Williamsport and State College lost.
The Doubledays got on the scoreboard first with three runs in the second inning and they were all unearned against Jammers' starting pitcher Chad Kuhl.
James Yezzo singled with one out and went to second when Jean Carlos Valdez reached base on an error. Cody Gunter singled home Yezzo and Valdez moved to third with the help of another error. Then the Jammers committed their third error of the inning that allowed Wilmer Difo to reach base and Valdez scored. After Matt Reistetter flied out, Isaac Ballou singled home Gunter for a 3-0 lead.
Jamestown got two runs back in the top of the third and they were also unearned.
With one out, Elvis Escobar reached base on an error and then Francisco Aponte was safe on an another error. Jeff Roy singled to load the bases and Adam Frazier singled to drive in Escobar. Harold Ramirez followed with an infield single and Aponte scored to cut the margin to 3-2.
However, that was all the scoring the Jammers could do and Auburn added two more runs in the seventh against reliever Will Kendell.
Greg Zebrack doubled with one out, stole third and scored on a sacrifice fly by Rodriguez. Bryan Lippincott followed with a home run to right field to complete the scoring.
The Jammers play at Auburn again tonight at 7:05.
They open a three-game series with Staten Island on Tuesday at Diethrick Park at 7:05 p.m.
