WILLIAMSPORT — Four Jamestown Jammer pitchers limited Williamsport to five hits in Monday’s 6-1 win over the Crosscutters.
Jamestown, now 2-2, scored four runs in the first inning and two in the ninth in handing Williamsport its first loss of the NYP baseball season.
Luis Chirinos threw the first four innings, Isaac Morales getting the win and Jordan Conley his first save.
Conley struck out four in 1 2/3 innings.
The Jammers spoiled the professional debut of Phillies second round draft pick Perci Garner. Garner made it through just one inning, giving up four runs on three hits. The big blow was a two-run triple off the bat of Ryan Fisher.
Fisher and Marcell Ozuna finished 2 for 4, Noah Perio 2 for 5. Dallas Poulk had a two-run single in the ninth.
Jamestown plays again tonight and tomorrow at Williamsport before moving on to State College (1-3).
ERIE — The offense has struggled all season for the Erie SeaWolves and hitting coach Glenn Adams has paid the price, relieved of his duties after four seasons by the Detroit Tigers.
Last-place Erie (30-38) welcomes Eastern Division-leading Trenton (41-26) today for a doubleheader, the first game starting at 6:05 p.m., a continuation from a suspended game on May 27. The contest is 0-0 in the fourth inning.
After that game is finished, a seven-inning contest will follow.
Brooks Brown (4-4) is to pitch in the suspended game for Erie, while Thad Weber (4-7) gets the call in the nightcap.
Former SeaWolve Jay Sborz is expected to be called up by Detroit to replace Rick Porcello who was sent to the minors on Sunday. Sborz was 1-1 with 15 saves and 3.04 ERA at AAA Toledo.
Porcello, 14-9 last year as a rookie, is 4-7 with a 6.14 ERA in 2010.
