Morning Jam: June 30

June 30, 2012 Leave a comment

Well… it’s going to be a long year in Jamestown.

The Jammers dropped their seventh in a row, fourth of their last five by at least five runs and didn’t show much of anything after a 4-run first inning from Batavia.

Jamestown’s starter Ramon Del Orbe walked four and balked home a run in one of the ugliest first innings I’ve seen as Batavia had a total of one hit (a single) en route to scoring the four runs. Jamestown finished the game with four hits.

• Juancito Martinez had another nice day at the plate. Went 0-for-1, but walked twice and stole a bag. He’s got five steals which is third best in the league.

• Austin Nola’s day off yesterday helped. He went 2-for-4 today with a couple of well hit balls. Nola has reached base in 9-of-11 games despite the batting average under .200. He looks like one of the few players on this team. Did well at third base, too. Not sure where he projects, but third might be the better choice for him.

• Not much else to say here. Jamestown only had seven baserunners and grounded into three double plays. Kentrell Dewitt had a leadoff double in the 8th, advanced on a grounder and scored on a fly ball. Small ball from the Jammers finally, but too bad it was when they were down by seven.

• Jamestown is now batting .227 as a team with a .296 on-base percentage.

• They’ll look to avoid the sweep tonight with Mason Hope on the mound. Ben Freeman is going for Batavia. He shut down the Jammers Sunday at Diethrick Park. Tonight is at Dwyer Stadium in Batavia.

Jammers 3, Scrappers 1 — Recap

June 19, 2012 Leave a comment

With a complete contrast of lineups from Game 1 and Game 2, perhaps it’s only fitting it was a complete contrast in games from Monday and Tuesday. After a fairly sloppy performance Monday, Jamestown held Mahoning Valley to three hits en route to a 3-1 victory for their first win of the 2012 season.

The good: Jamestown’s bullpen. After a rough outing Monday, three Jamestown relievers combined to throw five innings of no-hit ball while walking just one. Jheyson Manzueta was the most impressive, retiring all six batters and striking out five. Brian Dice also went 3-for-3 in his 2012 debut out of the 6-hole.

The bad: Not much to complain about tonight. The two errors came from the pitchers and the Jammers pounded out nine hits. 3-for-12 with RISP isn’t terrible enough to complain about, but leaving 12 on is.

Game was over when: Well to be fair, this one wasn’t over until Nick Wittgren got Richard Stock to fly out for the 27th out. But, looking back on it, Mahoning Valley had the bases loaded with nobody out in the third. Del Orbe got the No. 3 hitter to strike out before getting a double play out of the cleanup hitter. The Scrappers didn’t have another chance — or another hit — the rest of the night.


Cameron Flynn (RF) B+ — 0-for-3 out of the leadoff spot, but walked twice. That’s all you want out of a leadoff hitter, no? Also was his first pro game for the rookie out of Kentucky.

Jesus Solorzano (CF) C+ — 0-for-4 with a walk and I could be wrong about this, but didn’t touch the ball at all defensively except for the final out. Weird night.

Felix Munoz (1B) B+ — Couple of singles from Munoz and it will be interesting to see how Espada uses his first baseman going forward. Rosa and Munoz are both lefties. It looked like Rosa (not just because he played Opening Day) was the guy but if Munoz keeps hitting, he’ll have to be in the lineup somewhere. Tough break when he lined into a double play to end the eighth.

Austin Nola (3B) B — First and foremost, the infield defense was great all around. 10 ground ball outs from Del Orbe and four more from the bullpen. Nola was busy down at third and showed he can play both positions on the left side of the infield. Started the fifth innings rally as well with his first hit as a pro.

Kentrell Dewiit (LF) A- — Another two hits from Dewitt, including his third double of the young season. Really fueled both rallies in the fourth and fifth, even though he only came around to score once. 4-for-7 with a walk this year.

Brian Dice (DH) A — Probably the least known player on this team — at least for me. But Dice, who I assumed wouldn’t see much time this year, went 3-for-4 with a double. He’ll be in the lineup again soon, I can promise that.

Sharif Othman (C) B — Went 1-for-3 with a walk and also had an RBI. I think Behar is the everyday catcher for this team, but Othman had a nice day.

Rony Peralta (SS) B — Like Nola, he was a busy man defensively. Also laid down a nice sacrifice bunt that helped things out in the fourth. Jamestown has plenty of options at short, so we’ll see if he impressed.

Yefri Perez (2B) C — He was actually the only Jammer not reach base tonight, but the infield did such a great job, you have to bump his rating up.


Ramon Del Orbe (SP) C+ — It may just be a pitch count thing, but Del Orbe only got them through four. Three hits and two walks, but he scattered them effectively. Pitched out of a bases-loaded, nobody out jam that preserved the game. Just need another inning or two in the future to be a quality start.

Sean Donatello (RP) A — Started the run of greatness by relievers by throwing two hitless innings. Walked one, struck out two. Got the win.

Jheyson Manzueta (RP) A+ — 2 IP, 0 H, 0 BB, 5 K. Enough said.

Nick Wittgren (RP) A+ — 1-2-3 ninth for the save. Struck out one.

Jammers return the favor to the Scrappers as they travel to play Mahoning Valley for two in Niles, Ohio. First pitch tomorrow is at 7:05 p.m.
