Jamestown Tarp Skunks 8, Geneva Red Wings 3 – 7 Innings
The Tarp Skunks (22-17-1) kept up their playoff push with this home win over Geneva (11-30-1).
After scoring the first run of the game in the bottom of the first, Jamestown added onto their advantage with two more in the third on RBI singles from second baseman Tommy Googins (Princeton) and third baseman Jake Kernodle (Princeton). Then after adding one more run in the fourth, the Tarp Skunks broke out with a five-run fifth inning, highlighted by a 2-run single off the bat of left fielder Zack Kent (Wagner). They’d settle for eight run on ten hits in the comfortable victory.
The Red Wings scored their fist run in the top of the fourth when left fielder Jason Shockley (Rutgers) came through with an RBI double. The very next inning, centerfielder Brandon Gelpi (Baldwin Wallace) would come through with an RBI single, before one more Geneva run would cross home on a putout. Jamestown would hold them right there.
Peyton Ahlstrom (Finger Lakes CC) picked up the win for Jamestown, going five innings, giving up three runs, and striking out five.
