JAMESTOWN, N.Y.-The Jamestown Jammers dropped their third straight game Tuesday night, 3-1, to the Pinkney Division Leading State College Spikes at Russell Diethrick Park. Despite the loss, Jamestown holds a one game lead in the New York-Penn League wild card race thanks to the Aberdeen Ironbirds 8-7 victory over the Lowell Spinners.
After four scoreless innings, Jamestown's Adam Landecker hit into a fielder's choice that allowed Austin Meadows to score, giving the home club a one run lead.
State College answered in the top of the sixth when Cesar Valera connected on a solo home run to tie the game at one run apiece.
The visitors broke out the bats again in the eighth when Luke Voit singled in a pair of runs, and the Jammers were unable to answer as they fall to 42-32 on the year.
Cody Dickson allowed just one hit over five scoreless innings on the mound for Jamestown, earning no decision. Jackson Lodge took the loss after working the sixth and seventh, and Jared Lakind threw two scoreless innings to close things out.
Austin Meadows had two out of Jamestown's four hits at the plate.
The Jammers (jamestownjammers.com) will close out regular season play Wednesday night against the Spikes at Russell Diethrick Park.
A win or a Lowell loss would all but secure the wild card for Jamestown with the playoffs set to begin later this week.
