ELMIRA — In case you hadn’t noticed, the Jamestown Jammers are on quite a roll.

Highlighted by an outstanding pitching performance by Michael Ginther, the Jammers posted a 2-0 victory over Elmira in a Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League contest Sunday to extend their winning streak to nine straight.

Ginther gave up three hits in six innings as Jamestown raised its record to 11-2. The second game was postponed.

The Jammers, who managed just five hits themselves, scored all their runs in the first inning against starter Houston Roth, one of three Elmira pitchers. Highlighting the inning were RBI singles by Chris Estrada and Alex O’Donnell.

After that it was a pitcher’s duel. In six innings, Ginther struck out five and didn’t issue a walk in raising his record to 3-0. Colin Johnston worked the final inning, striking out two of the three batters he faced.

Christ Conley had two hits and walked twice to lead the Jammers, who took advantage of nine walks. Conor Grammes had two hits, including a double, for Elmira.

The Jammers begin a two-game series at Geneva on Tuesday. First pitch is 7:05 p.m. Their next home game is Thursday when they entertain Newark.
