Jamestown, NY- The Jammers and Muckdogs closed out their commuter series on Tuesday night at Diethrick Park. Jamestown had a victory on their mind before hitting the road for a six game road trip. Dovydas Neverauskas toed the mound for the Jammers looking for his second win of the season.
For the first time in the series the Batavia would fail to score in the first inning. Neverauskas would retire the Muckdogs in order in the first inning. The Jammers would get on the scoreboard first as Jin-De Jhang would score from second off a RBI single from Harold Ramirez to make it 1-0 in the bottom of the first.
Batavia would battle back in the third inning as they would score twice to take a 2-1 lead. JT Riddle scored after a Neverauskas wild pitch for the go ahead tally. Neverauskas would settle into a groove after the third inning and toss a scoreless fourth and fifth innings to keep the Jammers in the game.
The Jammers would take over the driver seat in the bottom of the fifth inning by plating two runs. Jacoby Jones would tie the game at 2-2 after legging out an RBI triple that would score Adam Frazier from first base. Jin-De Jhang would give Jamestown their second lead of the night by driving in Jones with an RBI double to make it a 3-2 game.
The Bullpen for Jamestown would hold Batavia off the scoreboard the rest of the way as Jared Lakind and Roberto Espinosa combined for four innings of shut-out baseball. The Jammers would tack on a pair of runs late in the game to pad their cushion. Francisco Aponte hit his first home run of the season with the bases empty in the sixth inning to make it a 4-2 game. Ramirez would round out the scoring for Jamestown in the eighth inning, scoring from third on a passed ball to make it 5-2 Jammers.
The winning effort gives Neverauskas his second win of the season as he allowed only one earned run and lowered his ERA to 4.58. He also struck out three batters over the course of five innings. Jhang finished the night 2-3 at the plate with one RBI and Ramirez went 3-4 with a stolen base and one RBI.
The Jammers hit the road Wednesday to kick of a six game road trip that will start in Hudson Valley (McNamara) and then travel to Lowell, MA (Stedler). The six games will mark the first time this season that the Jammers will see a team from outside of the Pinckney Division.
