Morning Jam: July 6

A good combined outing from Mason Hope and Jacob Esch was spoiled last night as the Jammers lost 2-1 while only picking up four hits, all by the top two hitters in the lineup.

Esch, in particular was great. He threw three more scoreless innings to drop his ERA to 1.69. The collegiate second baseman has been their long man, throwing 16 innings in five games this year. He’s been rock solid for them out of the pen.

The four hits came from Yefri Perez and Pedro Mendoza, two NYPL veterans at the top of the order. Jammers are now 6-11, six games out of first place in the Pinckney Division and 3.5 out of the wild card.

Jamestown team’s ERA is now 3.39 after that fine outing. But while that number is pretty impressive, the starters’ ERA is 5.10. It’s the bullpen that has been so tremendous and with Esch’s three scoreless innings, the bullpen ERA is down 2.23. Plus the bullpen has thrown 96.2 innings compared to just 65.1 out of the starters.

Not much else to report. Jamestown finishes up their three-game series with Staten Island tonight. That game will be on MiLB.tv. Also, after Jamestown finishes its three game set with Brooklyn, they will have 12 out the next 15 games at home. If Jamestown can keep that record right where it is now by going 2-2 over the next four, they’ll have a great shot to make a move in the standings before July ends.

No word on who is starting tonight. It’s is the fourth spot in the rotation, usually Ryan Newell’s, but the Blake Logan started in his place the last time this spot came up. Newell then came on in relief.
