Jammers Win First Road Game
SYRACUSE — The first inning proved to be the key as the Jamestown Jammers made a successful debut on the road Friday night.
Jamestown scored four runs in the first inning and never looked back in a 7-1 defeat of the Onondaga Flames running their Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League record to 5-2 with three straight wins.
Ben Brookover started off the first inning for the Jammers with a single, then Christ Conley ripped a double to put runners on second and third. Skyler Valentine followed with an RBI single. Alex O’Donnell brought both runners in with a double followed by Casey Vincent’s run-producing single for a 4-0 lead on Chase Haggerty (1-1) before the hosts came to the plate at Onondaga Community College.
Left-hander David Lyskama got his first start and made it successful by being the third consecutive Jamestown pitcher to go seven innings. He allowed just three hits with nine strikeouts and no walks.
Onondaga (2-4) scored its only run off Lyskama in the first when Camillo Spinoso singled and Gage Lanning tripled.
Jamestown made it 5-1 in the third when Conley doubled and scored on Matt Cross’ single.
Another run crossed in the sixth as Vincent walked, was balked to second and scored on a pair of wild pitches as the score reached 6-1.
In the seventh, Collin Stack and Brookover singled before Conley walked to fill the bases. Valentine followed with a walk to force in the final run.
Isaac Meza went the final two innings to preserve the win for Lyskama by allowing no hits with a walk and a strikeout.
The Jammers produced 10 hits with Stack, Brookover and Conley each having two hits. Conley had two doubles and Brookover had one.
Jamestown goes to Oneonta for 7:05 p.m. game today and plays at Utica at 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
