Outstanding pitching carried the Jamestown Tigers travel baseball team to a doubleheader sweep in the Buffalo Police Athletic League on Wednesday.

Jacob Kindberg fanned 12 and scattered just five hits over seven innings to earn the complete game victory, 8-1, over Tosh Collins in day’s first contest.

Jeff Miller led the way at the plate, connecting for a pair of hits, including a double, while teammates Kindberg and Brett Payne each hit a double.

In the nightcap it was the combined efforts of a trio of pitchers – Robbie Burgess, Miller and Winfred Nelson – that secured for the Tigers a 6-2 win over Iroquois.

Together the group surrendered four hits and fanned nine.

Chad Nelson had two hits, including a double, and Winfred Nelson delivered a triple during the victory.

The Tigers are back in action on Monday in Buffalo at noon when they square off against Frontier, the team that handed them their lone loss in league play thus far this season.
