BATAVIA, JAMESTOWN, N.Y. - After a seven-game losing streak, the Jamestown Jammers were tired of losing.
The Jammers (5-9) broke the losing streak with a dramatic 6-5 victory in Batavia Saturday evening and backed it up with a dominating 7-1 victory over the Auburn Doubledays Sunday at Diethrick Park in Jamestown.
Entering Saturday having not won in over a week, the Jammers were staring their eighth straight setback directly in the face, trailing 5-2, as the game entered the ninth inning. Instead of rolling over, Jamestown erupted for four ninth-inning runs.
Matt Juengel started the rally with a single and Viosergy Rosa followed with a walk. A passed ball moved both runners up and Jesus Solarzano drove home a pair with a single to make it 5-4. Kentrell Dewitt's sacrifice bunt was misplayed allowing him to reach next and both he and Solorzano moved up on a groundout from Jose Behar.
Cameron Flynn next walked to load the bases and Yefri Perez grounded out to score Solorzano and tie the game. Pedro Mendoza was up next and his screaming single to left scored Dewitt and gave Jamestown the lead.
That momentum carried into Sunday as the Jammers plated five runs in the first and were never challenged. Mendoza had an RBI single, Juengel and Rosa had RBI doubles and Behar and Flynn worked bases loaded walks to account for Jamestown's early scoring.
