Red Wings Snap Jammers’ Streak
GENEVA — Despite a valiant effort in the top of the ninth inning, the Jamestown Jammers saw their nine-game winning streak come to an end Tuesday night by virtue of a tightly contested 4-3 loss to the Geneva Red Wings in Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League action.
Down to their final three outs, Jamestown (11-3) found itself facing a 4-2 deficit and was able to pull within one at 4-3, thanks to an RBI single from Chris Estrada (University of Texas at San Antonio). However, Geneva (10-6) reliever Coby Mullins was able to work his way out of the jam following the knock from Estrada and preserved the win for the Red Wings.
The Jammers struggled to mount an offensive threat throughout the contest against Geneva starter Alex Bellardini. The right-hander ended up working eight solid innings on the hill en route to picking up the win, surrendering nine hits and striking out four.
Christ Conley (Canisius College) launched his first home run of the summer in the top of the fifth while Skyler Valentine (University of Texas at San Antonio) contributed three hits and Estrada added two hits in defeat.
David Lyskawa (Niagara County Community College) got the nod on the mound for Jamestown and worked 5ª innings, giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits. He also struck out five. Isaac Meza (CSU Bakersfield) and Ryan Boyer (Pitt-Bradford) saw time out of the bullpen as well.
Matt Chamberlain and Joseph Tassin ripped two hits each for Geneva.
The Jammers and Red Wings will square off again tonight in Geneva at 7:05 p.m.
