Big Stretch for Jammers

After impressively sweeping the league’s top team on the road, the Jammers begin a stretch of playing 12 of their next 15 games at home over the next 14 days. It will start with the Vermont Lake Monsters, owners of the NYPL Wild Card (along with Batavia) and a team riding a four-game winning streak.

It’s not just a two-week stretch though. Jamestown will play — weather permitting — 21 games over the next 20 days starting tonight with the final six coming on the road. And considering that will take us past the halfway point of the season, it’s safe to say we’ll find out whether or not the Jammers are a contender this season.

It will be a tough start, though. Each of the next 15 games are against teams over .500, including six against division leaders Tri-City and Auburn (doubleheader July 23). Another five are against Vermont and Batavia, the two teams tied for the Wild Card. The remaining four against Mahoning Valley, a key divisional rival and also a team currently in third place in the Pinckney Division.

The schedule eases up, though. From there, Jamestown will have 40 games left. 29 of which will be against teams at or below .500. If they can stay afloat of get themselves into striking position, the Jammers will have more than enough chances to make the playoffs.
