Jammers Suffer Road Loss To Newark; Are Home Tonight
NEWARK — The Jamestown Jammers were held to just four hits Thursday night as they fell to the Newark Pilots, 7-3, in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League.
Jamestown (28-12) jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the second inning thanks to an RBI groundout from Connor Rule (Kansas State) and an RBI single from Chris Estrada (University of Texas-San Antonio), but Newark scored four runs in the fourth inning to take the lead for good.
The Pilots’ outburst was keyed by an RBI double from Graham Hackbarth, a two-run single from Hunter Wells and an RBI single from Will Allocca.
Newark tacked on one more run in the fifth and two more runs in the eighth to put the game out of reach.
Ben Brookover (UTSA) was the only Jammer to record two hits. Michael Ginther (Canisius College) and Ryan Boyer (Pitt-Bradford) each worked four innings on the mound in defeat.
The Jammers will be back in action tonight at Diethrick Park against the Elmira Pioneers. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
