Tarp Skunks rout Niagara
NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. — Jamestown had trouble scoring runs in its exhibition game Thursday night — a 2-0 win over Olean, a member of the New York Collegiate Baseball League.
Twenty-four hours later, the Tarp Skunks had no such issues when they traveled to Niagara Falls to open their Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League schedule.
Jordan King collected two hits, including a triple, as part of an eight-hit attack and Jamestown rode another strong effort from its pitching staff to knock off Niagara 11-1 at Sal Maglie Stadium on Friday.
King drove in three runs, Cody Bey knocked in two, and Patrick DeMarco and Bryce Jackson combined on a seven-hitter. Jamestown broke the game open with five runs in the third inning, and tacked on three in each of the fifth and seventh innings to win via the 10-run rule.
DeMarco, the winning pitcher, gave up four hits and struck out three. He didn’t walk a batter. Jackson worked the final three frames, giving up three hits and an unearned run in the fifth. He struck out four and walked two.
Jamestown is off today, but will be back in action Sunday when it travels to Elmira. First pitch is at 4 p.m.
