East All-Stars Defeat West, 10-8
AMSTERDAM — Jimmy Standohar (Mercyhurst University) ripped two hits and drove in a run to highlight the Jamestown Jammers’ performances for the West Division in the 2017 Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League All-Star Game at Shuttleworth Park.
Jamestown’s Christ Conley (Canisius College), Chris Estrada (University of Texas-San Antonio) and Collin Stack (University of Maryland-Baltimore County) all collected one hit apiece as well for the West Division, which ultimately fell to the East Division, 10-8, in eight innings.
Skyler Valentine (UTSA) and Ben Brookover, who were representing the Jammers in the PGCBL All-Star Game for the second consecutive season along with Conley and Cory Blessing (Ohio University), didn’t manage to pick up any hits, but saw action for several innings.
On the mound, Jamestown’s David Lyskawa (Niagara County Community College) got the nod to begin the game and worked one inning, struck out one and surrendered one run. Teammate Colin Johnston (Monroe Community College) hurled a scoreless inning and Blessing also had the opportunity to get some work in.
In the Prospect Game, which took place earlier in the day prior to the All-Star Game, Jamestown’s Connor Rule (Kansas State University) had one hit in three at-bats and he drove in a run.
The Jammers, who hold a four-game lead over the second-place Geneva Red Wings in the West Division, will be right back in action following the brief break tonight at Diethrick Park at 7:05 p.m. against Geneva.
