Old Timers baseball
The Jamestown Old Timers hosted 50-Plus National League leading Girard, Ohio this past Saturday at Russell Diethrick Park. Girard took an early lead in the top of the second with Jamestown tying the game in the bottom of the third. The teams were well matched through the sixth inning with Jamestown plating a second run in the bottom of the inning to take a 2-1 lead. Jamestown starter Sammy Spera worked through six and two thirds innings until Girard sparked their offense and got 3 runs in the top of 7 to take a 4-2 lead. The Old Timers manager, Larry Persing, called on Ted Morrison from the bullpen to close out the inning and eventually the game. The Old Timers woke up the bats in the bottom of the seventh sending 16 batters to the plate, scoring 12 runs on seven hits. Jamestown padded their lead adding another five in the eighth and won 19-8. Seven of the Old Timers had two hits including Brian Moldovan, Ron Thomas, Dave Matz, Wade Nelson, Ted Morrison, Ed Baldensperger and Brian Bennett.
The Old Timers get a week off before traveling to American Division leading Greenville for a double header on Sunday, July 13. The Old Timers next two home games are Hubbard on Sunday, July 20 and Niles on Sunday, July 27.
