Jammers lose opener of doubleheader

July 16, 2012 Leave a comment

Quick notes here from Jamestown in between games as the Tri-City ValleyCats took Game 1 of the doubleheader by a final of 3-0. ValleyCats starter Brian Holmes had a no-hitter through 5 2/3, but Viosergy Rosa broke it up with a solid liner to right.

Ramon Del Orbe wasn’t bad for Jamestown. He allowed just five hits with no walks in six innings of work, but was let down badly by his defense. An unearned run in the fourth thanks to a missed catch fly ball by Jesus Solorzano — with two outs — ended up being enough for Tri-City. But, even the next batter Ryan Dineer hit a slow roller to third that scored the runner from second. Play was ruled a hit, but probably should have been made by Pedro Mendoza.

In the sixth, Austin Elkins ripped a one-out triple that scored a run. He came around to score on a sac fly. In all reality, Del Orbe only made two mistakes (both were triples to Elkins) and only one cost him. Regardless, he took the loss and is now 0-3 with a 4.61 ERA.

Not that the bats helped him, though. The Jammers loaded them up with back-to-back-to-back walks in the first inning, but Anthony Gomez grounded out to end the threat. After that, Brian Holmes sat down 14 in a row until the Rosa single. Solorzano worked a full count, but flew out to right to end the mini-threat. Jamestown then went down in order in the seventh against reliever Blake Ford.

We already know it will be Drew Steckenrider making his professional debut for the Jammers on the hill tonight. The rookie was activated earlier today.

The ensuing roster move sent Blake Logan to the disabled list. No word on why.


1. Rony Peralta – 3B
2. Anthony Gomez – 2B
3. Felix Munoz – 1B
4. Jesus Solorzano – RF
5. Kentrell Dewitt – LF
6. Brian Dice – DH
7. Jose Behar – C
8. Yeison Hernandez – SS
9. Juancito Martinez – CF

SP — Drew Steckenrider

I’ll be switching to a slightly new format this week with a daily morning report called the “Morning Jammer”. That will be an easier way for me to hit on a few things as I simply won’t be able to do a game report each night.

• I had a nice phone interview with second baseman Anthony Gomez. That story will be up on the website tomorrow.

• Jamestown placed Drew Steckenrider on the temporarily inactive list. The rookie righthander out of Tennessee has yet to pitch this year. The ensuing roster opening allowed Jamestown to take Blake Logan off of the temporary inactive list. No word yet on when Logan will be used.

• I have teamed up with Penn League Report and will start contributing to the website this week. They do a good job over there, including recapping games from around the NYPL each night. Be sure to keep up with that each day. I’ll mostly be doing Jammers-related stuff work over there.

• Jammers at it again tonight as they continue their three game set with the Auburn Doubledays. Ryan Newell will look to get Jamestown off of a three-game slide.
