The Jamestown Jammers (5-10) wasted excellent pitching in seeing their brief winning streak end at two games on Monday night at Diethrick Park.
Matt Milroy (0-2), Jheyson Manzuetta and Beau Wright pitched very effectively in allowing only five hits and two runs, but came out on the short end of a 2-1 score to the Auburn Doubledays (10-5) in the Pinckney Division of the New York-Pennsylvania League.
On the other side, Blake Monar (1-1) and Brian Rauh held the Jammers to just three hits and Auburn evened the series at 1-1.
It was Auburn's fourth win in five outings against the Jammers this season.
Milroy of the Jammers and Monar of Auburn pitched three hitless innings until the Doubledays came to the plate in the fourth and scored twice.
After the first batter was retired, Shawn Pleffner doubled and Angelberth Montilla brought him in with an RBI single. Montilla reached second on a throwing error by catcher Jose Behar, advanced to third on Carlos Alvarez's grounder to first and came in on Wander Ramos' single for what proved to be the winning run.
The Jammers threatened in the home portion of the fourth when Pedro Mendoza, who reached base on a force out after Yefri Perez singled, reached third on a wild pitch and a passed ball. But Molar got out of jam by striking out Viosergy Rosa and Jesus Solorzano.
Jamestown finally got on the scoreboard in the sixth to slice the deficit to 2-1.
Rauh replaced Molar and walked Juancito Martinez, who stole second and went to third on Perez's infield out. Then he scored the only run for the Jammers on an infield out by Mendoza.
After that, the Jammers didn't threaten against Rauh, who allowed one hit in four innings to get his second save.
Besides Perez, the other singles for the Jammers were by Rosa and Anthony Gomez.
Jamestown will try to get back in the win column at 7:05 p.m. today against the Doubledays at Diethrick Park.
