The Jamestown Jammers continued their poor second-half play Wednesday night in the New York-Penn League at Diethrick Park.
Jamestown lost for 18th time in the last 26 games as Williamsport, a struggling offensive team all season, took a 10-6 sloppily-played decision with three errors apiece .
The win lifted the Crosscutters (24-38) to within three games in the loss column of the Jammers (26-35) in a battle for fifth place in the Pinckney Division. Mahoning Valley is also involved with a 27-34 record.
Williamsport had a 7-4 lead after three innings as it sent starter Helpi Reyes (2-6) to the showers after he allowed all seven earned runs on seven hits.
A three-run second inning and a three-run third did the damage as the Jammers never recovered.
Both teams scored a run in the first with Williamsport tallying on Cameron Perkins' infield out and Jamestown on a single by Michael Main and a double by Cody Keefer.
In the second inning things changed with Williamsport getting three for a 4-1 edge.
Roman Quinn knocked in two runs with a single and Jiandido Tromp, an .091 hitter, drew a walk, one of three by Reyes, with the bases loaded.
Back came the Jammers with two runs to cut the margin to 4-3 as Yefri Perez doubled in the Rony Peralta and Keefer singled in Perez.
Another three was put up by Williamsport in the third as Chace Numata hit a two-run double and Larry Greene had an RBI double for a 7-4 edge.
A double play by Felix Munoz scored the walking Viosergy Rosa in the third to make it a 7-5 deficit for the Jammers.
Casey McCarthy relieved Reyes in the fourth inning and gave up an RBI double to Serritella. Otherwise, McCarthy was impressive by going four innings, striking out six and allowing just that run.
The scoring stopped until the sixth when the Jammers scored once when Keefer got his third RBI on a single to plate Juanito Martinez, who singled, to slice the margin to 8-6.
Williamsport added two unearned runs in the eighth as the Jammers' defense fell apart with errors by third baseman Rony Peralta and center fielder Martinez, a balk by Jose Rodriguez and a walk by Rodriguez. The only hit was an RBI single by Perkins with the Tromp scoring on a balk.
Jamestown closed out the scoring in the bottom of the inning when Main hit a sacrifice fly to score the singling Perez.
Williamsport stole six bases in six attempts with Quinn swiping three, Walding two and Tromp one.
The teams play again tonight at 7:05.
