Morning Jam: July 4 Recap, Transaction Notes

Hope everyone had a great July 4. Back to work for me. Going to recap a few notes since Tuesday night — and there was a lot – and we’ll go in with a pitching report later on in the day. We’re just about at the 1/4 mark of the season (19 games) so I’ll be doing some mid-semester report cards on Saturday. That would have been Jamestown’s 20th game, but the suspension Tuesday killed that.


• Well the Jammers have played good ball since I last talked to you on Monday. They were winning 5-2 Tuesday before the rain came and cancelled it in the third. That game will be made up July 23 in Jamestown starting where it left off with one out in the Auburn third inning. By rule, that game will still be a nine inning game with the originally scheduled game to be a 7-inning contest and start a half hour after the conclusion of the first game. The doubleheader is scheduled to start at 5:05 p.m. in Jamestown.

• But, it was a nice come-from-behind victory Wednesday night that made the start of a six-game roadswing promising. Jamestown beat Staten Island yesterday 5-3 in 12 innings, largely thanks to first baseman Felix Munoz. Jamestown led early 2-0, but Staten Island scored one in the fourth and two in the fifth to take the lead. When Munoz came to bat in the bottom of the eighth with two out and nobody on, it looked like the Jammers were on their way to another loss. But, Munoz crushed a homerun to tie the game. Jheyson Manzueta then got out of a bases-loaded, nobody out jam in the bottom of the 11th and the Jammers scored two in the top of the 12th to win a stunner.

• That was without shortstop Austin Nola, though. The rookie infielder from LSU was called up to Greensboro yesterday. The Grasshoppers are battling some injuries, so no word yet on if Nola will return to Jamestown. Catcher Austin Barnes and outfielder Rand Smith were place on the disabled list Tuesday. In addition, Brent Keys and Terrence Dayleg were also on the disabled list leaving the Grasshoppers with just  11 active hitters. Nola went 1-for-4 in his Greensboro debut.

• Plenty of others moves for the Jammers too, though. Sean Donatello received a big promotion on Tuesday, getting called up to A-Advanced Jupiter. Donatello had been in Jupiter earlier in the year, but he had thrown 12 innings this year in Jamestown and had allowed just one run on eight hits.

• Collin Cargill finished his rehab stint in Jamestown. He was on rehab from Jupiter, but was sent to Greensboro. Cargill threw four innings in two games and allowed four hits. He wasn’t going to be here for long.

• Finally, Michael Vaughn was sent back down to the Gulf Coast League. I was a bit perplexed with what Vaughn was doing in Jamestown. While he was on the disabled list, Jamestown had three active catchers on the roster as is. Vaughn didn’t play a game for Jamestown.

• Confused by all these moves? Check out our active roster page.

• Tonight the Jammers send Mason Hope the mound as the 20-year-old starter looks to get Jamestown its second win in a row. Don’t forget the Jammers have a 3-run cushion in game still to be played, so even though it wouldn’t technically feel like the first three game winning streak this season, it would feel like it.
