TROY — Using a four-run fifth inning, the Jamestown Jammers (15-9) topped Tri-City (9-15) 7-3 Monday in the New York-Pennsylvania League.

The Jammers now have a season-high three-game winning streak.

Ironically, the Jammers struck out 17 times as everyone in the lineup fanned at least once with Todd Muecklisch, Dallas Poulk and Marcell Ozuna whiffing three times each.

Jamestown, which is off to a great start, maintained a two-game first-place advantage over State College and Williamsport in the Pinckney Division.

Eight different players had one hit each for the Jammers, Ozuna with his sixth homer this season, and fourth of the road trip.

Sequoyah Stonecipher doubled home two runs and scored in the fourth when there were two balks by Joan Belliard.

Luis Chirinos (3-2) got the win for the Jammers allowing one run in five innings, striking out five and walking two. He lowered his earned run average to 1.69. Grant Dayton followed with two innings of scoreless relief to put his ERA at 1.17.

The Jammers have had an excellent trip with a 4-1 record and go for the sweep tonight against the Valleycats.

Staten Island, the New York Yankees farm club, comes to Diethrick Park for three games starting Wednesday night.
