JAMESTOWN — The Geneva Red Wings dropped their first game of the 2017 Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League season on Monday night as they fell by a 10-6 score to the homestanding Jamestown Jammers.
Jamestown (2-1) scored four runs in the first and five more in the second to take control of the contest.
Geneva (2-1) battled back with a run in the fourth, three in the sixth and two in the seventh inning, but it wouldn’t be enough to complete the comeback.
Mikey Arman led Geneva’s offense with three hits, including a double, and two RBIs. Joe Tassin added two hits and scored one run in the loss.
Justin Etts, Justin Barr, TD Walker, Jake Lyle and Matt Collins also had hits for the Red Wings.
Geneva starting pitcher Slater O’Brien took the loss as he went just 1 1/3 innings and gave up nine runs (six earned) on six hits and three walks.
Travis Owens came on in relief and went 4 2/3 with just one run allowed and five strikeouts. Brett Holcombe tossed a scoreless eighth inning, and Geneva native Pat Connor didn’t surrender a run as he closed out the game on the hill.
Geneva will travel to Elmira for a battle with the Pioneers on Wednesday.
