NILES, Ohio - For the second straight game, the Jamestown Jammers went into extra innings and like on Wednesday when they won at State College they once again won on Thursday night.
It was a three-run outburst in the top of the 10th inning that gave the Jammers, now winners of four of the last five games, a 6-4 verdict over Mahoning Valley in the New York-Penn League.
The 10th inning fireworks started with one out when Mike Suchy drew a walk off James Stokes (0-2) followed by another walk to Kevin Krause. Chase Simpson brought them both home with a double to left field and went to third on Dave Andriese's infield out. He eventually scored the third run on a wild pitch.
Luis Urena was brought in to pitch for the Jammers in the bottom of the 10th and ran into immediate trouble as Greg Allen and Steve Patterson singled. Urena retired Leo Castillo on an infield out as the runners moved up. The right-hander got Francisco Mejia on a popup, but a balk scored Allen to slice the deficit to 6-4.
The final out was recorded when D'vone McClure grounded to shortstop Tyler Filliben and Urena had his first save of the season and it was the third straight win on the road for the Jammers.
Jamestown scored two runs in the third inning to tie it up at 2-2.

Anderson singled and Erik Lunde walked and both runners advanced on Taylor Gushue's sacrifice bunt. An infield out by Suchy scored a run and Krause's double tied it up for the Jammers.
The Scrappers had scored twice in the second for a 2-0 edge as Shane Rowland and Drake Roberts singled home the runs.
After MV had taken the lead at 3-2 on a wild pitch in the seventh inning, the Jammers tied it up again in the eighth when Simpson hit a sacrifice fly to score Gushue, who had walked.
Newcomer Sam Street made his debut a success as he recored the win with two hitless innings in which he fanned a pair for the Jammers.
The Jammers play at Mahoning Valley again tonight at 7:05 in the second of a four-game series.
