BATAVIA - For the first time this season, the Jamestown Jammers have had a game rained out.
Tuesday's New York-Penn League game with the Batavia Muckdogs was postponed because because of wet grounds at Dwyer Stadium.
The Jammers (8-16) begin a six-game home stand against the Tri-City Cats (16-9) at 7:05 p.m. today in hopes of breaking an eight-game losing streak.
Tri-City is at Diethrick Park for 7:05 p.m. games also on Thursday and Friday.
Andrew Lambo, who played 18 games for the Pittsburgh Pirates last season, will be beginning a rehab assignment with the Jammers today. Lambo is scheduled to be with the team throughout the upcoming homestand tonight through Monday.
Lambo is recovering from an injury to his right thumb, which required surgery in late May.
Last season, Lambo split time between the Altoona Curve (Double-A), and the Indianapolis Indians (Triple A) before being called up by the Pirates. In 120 games combined for the Curve and Indians, Lambo hit .282, had 125 total hits, 32 home runs, 99 RBIs and 24 doubles. He also received the Pittsburgh Pirates Minor League Player of the Year award for his efforts.
He was called up to the Pirates in mid-August, and made his major league debut on Aug. 13 against the St. Louis Cardinals. He hit his first major league home run on Sept. 28 against the Cincinnati Reds.
In 18 games for the Pirates, Lambo hit .233, with seven hits, two doubles and two RBIs.
Lambo was a fourth-round pick of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2007 amateur draft. In 2009, Baseball America rated Lambo as the top prospect in the Dodgers minor league system. In 2010, he was traded by the Dodgers along with James McDonald to the Pirates for Octavio Dotel.
