Good Pitching Not Enough For JHS

Jamestown (0-5, 1-8) continued to get good pitching in defeat at the Martin Road Complex on Friday.

Brett Dehner and Jeff Miller of the Red Raiders spun an eight-hitter with three walks and two strikeouts in a 4-2 setback to Orchard Park (3-2) in ECIC Division 1 baseball.

Dehner worked 6 innings, giving up all four runs with three strikeouts and two walks while yielding eight hits. Miller retired the two batters he faced.

The first inning put Jamestown into a 3-0 hole as Dave Hollins, the son of former Philadelphia Phillies Dave Hollins, drove in a run with a double. Another run scored on an error and a third on a sacrifice fly by Jeff Palczewski.

Jamestown came back with two runs in the fourth when Jake Sisson was aboard on a fielder’s choice and Adam Westley cracked an RBI triple and later scored on an infield out by Cortland Haines.

The Red Raiders threatened in the seventh inning on a pinch single by Connor Stam. An error and a passed ball put the tying runs on second and third, but the final batter grounded out to shortstop to end it.

Jamestown plays a makeup game at West Seneca West, starting 10 a.m. today.
