JAMESTOWN, N.Y. - After a 1-2 road trip to open the New York Penn League season, the Jammers had little trouble in their home opener - a 7-1 win over the Williamsport Crosscutters.
Trailing 1-0, Jamestown scored two runs in the third, three in the fourth and two in the fifth to even its record at 2-2.
Pedro Mendoza and Marquise Cooper singled to start the bottom of the third and Jamestown manufactured two runs for the lead. Those two also singled in a three-run third, and Jobduan Morales added a two-run triple in the fifth. Mendoza and Cooper - from the eight and nine spots - had two hits each for the Jammers, and five pitchers scattered six hits and struck out 10 for the win. Thomas Peale started and allowed one unearned run over four innings, striking out four without a walk.
Jamestown is home the rest of the week, beginning at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday.
