Morning Jam: June 28

Another blowout loss at the hands of Auburn. The three game series ended with a 7-0 loss on Wednesday meaning Jamestown had been outscored 22-5 in the series. They had just five hits and little-used infielders Yefri Perez and Rony Peralta had four of them. In addition, just one walk. Ugly cap to an ugly series.

• Jammers starters have thrown 36 innings, allowed 40 hits, walked 18 and allowed 27 runs (23 earned). Take away Ramon Del Orbe and those numbers are somehow even more brutal. It is going to be a very long year if that keeps up.

• Possible solutions? Well, I’m not sure, but Jake Esch and Blake Logan feel like real options at this point. Esch has done a marvelous job out of the pen and has had outings of three and four innings this year. Logan, a rookie out of college, was a starter this season. So was Drew Steckenrider, who is on the temporary inactive list right now.

• Jamestown is now hitting .244 as a team. Was just this weekend when I said the Jammers were in good shape with their offense. Well, Auburn settled that down as Jamestown batted exactly .200 (19-for-95) in the series and averaged less than two runs. I don’t know, at some point Angel Espada has to use guys that are swinging hot bats. Clearly, the plan has been to use Austin Nola everyday, but the rookie shortstop (who I said wasn’t nearly as bad as his numbers indicated last night) had another tough day at the plate, going 0-for-4.

• They’ll start a three-gamer with Batavia tonight. The Muckdogs are a game better than Jamestown at 4-6 and took two of three from Jamestown this past weekend. Again, they’ll go back-and-forth between Jamestown and Batavia starting in Batavia tonight. Helpi Reyes (0-0, 5.63 ERA) on the mound for the Jammers.
