Morning Jam: Jamestown drops fourth straight

June 27, 2012 Leave a comment

It was an ugly 8-3 loss that could have actually been much worse had Auburn not batted 3-f0r-16 with RISP. But, nonetheless, Jamestown has been routed by Auburn on back-to-back nights and with more coming up against the Doubledays next week, they better figure it out soon.

• The lone bright spot was Austin Nola had two hits to bump his average to .161. Say what you want about his struggles, but the rookie shortstop has now reached based six games in a row and eight of nine. In his last five, he’s batting .286 with a .444 OBP. Things aren’t nearly as bad as they seem for him.

• Blake Logan’s pro debut was rather special last night. After being activated earlier in the day, Logan came on in relief of Newell and threw two scoreless innings while striking out five. I still think the 13th round pick is better suited for the rotation and with the way Jamestown’s starters have been this year, I wouldn’t think it would be the worst idea.

• Miguel Fermin did throw last night much like I thought he would. He finished off the eighth, but struggled a little allowing a double and a walk.

• 7 hits and 6 walks last night, but just 3 runs. No timely hitting and another solo homerun. They offense is actually tied for fourth in homers, 7th in average and OBP, but third last (12th) in RBI and second last (13th) in runs. They’re spreading the hits out and not hitting when guys are on. Pretty simple.

• Final game of a three-game set in Auburn. A much-needed win and Jamestown will send Matt Milroy (0-0, 4.50, 2 IP) to the hill to face Pedro Encarnacion (0-0, 2-8 ERA, 4.1 IP).

• Jamestown starts a three-gamer with Batavia tomorrow, but will be doing some traveling. Batavia Thursday, Jamestown Friday, Batavia Saturday.

• Birthday wishes: A happy 20th to Jammers starting pitcher Mason Hope, a fifth round pick in the 2011 MLB Draft.
