Down Early, Jammers Win At Elmira, 8-3
ELMIRA — Despite working through some difficulties playing away from home this season, the Jamestown Jammers looked sharp on Friday evening, notching a come-from-behind 8-3 win over Elmira in Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League action.
The Jammers are now 24-9 after scoring three runs in the fourth inning and three more in the eighth to work out of a 3-1 hole.
The Pioneers took that lead on a two-RBI double by Joey Myers and an RBI single from Tanner Johnson in the second.
In the fourth, Jamestown got the bats going, highlighted by an RBI single from Austin Parent, a bases-loaded walk issued by Danny Madden, who also uncorked a wild pitch that led to another run.
The Jammers padded their lead in the eighth inning as Sterling Hayes walked and later scored on an error; Rashad Stewart scored on a fielder’s choice and Jeff Timko smacked an RBI triple.
Josh Brammell had two hits and two RBIs and Timko added a single to complete his two-hit night. While the Jammers finished with only six hits as a team, they were the beneficiaries of nine walks.
Winning pitcher JJ Dunn struck out four with one walk through four innings. Zach Sanders and Trevor Lloyd each struck out a pair with no walks in relief.
