For the second day in a row, rain halted several games, as three of Monday’s scheduled contests were postponed to a later date. The wet weather, however, wouldn’t keep the Geneva Red Wings and Jamestown Jammers off the field, as two teams met at Russell E. Diethrick Jr. Park.
Here’s a look back at the scores from June 5:
Jamestown (2-1) 10, Geneva (2-1) 6
The Jammers handed the Red Wings their first loss of the 2017 campaign with an early offensive explosion and held off a late Geneva rally for the win. In the first and second innings, the hosts scored a combined nine runs and pulled ahead by a 9-0 score. A walk and three consecutive singles got Jamestown on the board, with the latter of the base hits coming off the bat of Christ Conley (Canisius) and driving in two. Alex O’Donnell (Mercyhurst) doubled the lead to 4-0 with a two-run double two batters later. As a result of the early assault, Geneva starter Slater O’Brien (Saint Joseph’s (Pa.)) lasted only 1.1 innings, but the Red Wing bullpen was taxed for only one more run throughout the remainder of the contest. Geneva made things interesting by scoring three times in the sixth and twice in the seventh, but stranded two runners on base in the eighth, stalling their comeback hopes. Mikey Arman (Kenyon) had a good night at the dish for the Red Wings, going 3-for-5 with two RBIs, while Conley paced the Jamestown offense with three hits and three RBIs.
