JAMESTOWN, N.Y. - State College's bats were held nearly silent on Wednesday night as the Jamestown Jammers held the Spikes to just two hits and became the first team to hold them scoreless this season in a 6-0 win at Russell Diethrick Park.
Adalberto Santos and Kyle Saukko were responsible for the State College (6-7) base hits on the evening, with Santos extending his streak of consecutive plate appearances reaching base to nine by adding three walks as well. The shutout marked the first time the Spikes have been held to less than two runs in one contest in 2010.
Jamestown (8-5) took the lead early when Ryan Fisher delivered a two-run triple in the first, followed by an RBI single from Sequoyah Stonecipher. Wilfredo Gimenez also aided the Jammers offense with a solo home run to left in the fourth inning.
Brooks Pounders (1-2) started and took the loss for State College, allowing four runs on five hits while striking out five. Pounders retired seven straight batters from the second through fourth innings.
In his first professional appearance, Jamestown reliever Grant Dayton (1-0) earned the win with three no-hit innings. An Auburn alum, Dayton walked one batter and struck out one in relief of starter Saul Gonzalez, who allowed both Spikes hits.
State College returns home Thursday to meet the Williamsport Crosscutters and resume the 2010 SawBuck Series at Medlar Field at 7:05 p.m.
