The Jamestown Jammers had one of those games Saturday night where everything that could go wrong, did.
Jamestown was riding a six-game winning streak coming in against Tri-City, which was on four-game streak of its own, but the ValleyCats (19-7) took advantage of the Jammers' shoddy play in the six-run third inning and cruised to an 11-1 New York-Pennsylvania League victory at Diethrick Park.
The Jammers (12-13) only had four hits with three being in the fourth inning when they scored their lone run.
Helpi Reyes (1-1) started for the Jammers and didn't get the support as six of the seven runs he allowed were unearned.
Tri-City got a run in the second inning without a hit.
Ryan Dineer walked, stole second, took third on an infield out and scored on a Reyes' wild pitch. That was the only earned run off Reyes, whose four walks did him in.
The ValleyCats broke it open with six runs in the third, thanks to poor Jammers' defense. Walks to Andrew Aplin and Joe Sciafani and back-to-back errors by first baseman Viosergy Rosa and second baseman Yeison Hernandez led to two runs.
Jess Wierzbicki hit a sacrifice fly followed by Tyler Heineman's run-scoring double and Emilo King's two-run triple that capped the outburst and gave the visitors a 7-0 cushion.
Bryan Berglund of the Jammers relieved in the fourth and allowed two earned runs .
Andrew Aplin greeted Berglund by smashing a triple and that was followed by a RBI double by Austin Elkins. Elkins eventually scored on a single by Wierzbicki for a 9-0 lead.
Aaron West, who came in with an earned run average under one, gave up his only run in the Jamestown fourth.
Ronnie Peralta cracked a leadoff double and went to third on Pedro Mendoza's single. Jesus Solorzano delivered Peralta with an RBI single. West (3-0) bore down and retired the next two batters.
There was no scoring for three innings as Jamestown relievers Jose Rodriguez went two innings and Ryan Newell one.
But in the eighth against Brian Ellington, the ValleyCats cashed another unearned run on an infield out by Heineman.
The final run came in the ninth on an Elkins' single off Miguel Fermin.
Jamestown threatened to score in the ninth against John Neely. Neely walked Mendoza and Rosa with nobody out, but got Solorzano to rap into a double play and Felix Munoz to ground out.
Jamestown tries to start a new winning streak at 1 p.m. today against the ValleyCats in the second game of the series.
