The Jamestown Jammers continued their scoring woes at Diethrick Park on Saturday night.
Jamestown (30-35), which has scored only six runs in four games, suffered a 7-3 loss to State College (41-26) to fall 10 games behind the Pinckney Division leader in the New York-Pennsylvania League.
The Jammers fell behind from the start as the Spikes hit starter Austin Coley (0-2) for two runs in the first inning.
Darren Seferina walked and stole his 15th and 16th bases to set the stage for Nick Thompson's RBI double. Thompson, meanwhile, scored on a two-out single by Robelys Reyes.
Jose Regalado of Jamestown replaced Coley and after recording a scoreless second inning ran into trouble in the third and fourth innings by permitting five runs.
Three runs crossed in the third when Danny Diekroeger and Thompson singled followed by Jake Stone's three-run home run to left field for a 5-0 lead.
In the fourth inning, Stone was at it again as he belted a two-run double to give him five RBIs and the Spikes a 7-0 margin.
Will Anderson, now 6-2, was working on a shutout until the seventh inning when the Jammers ended a 15-inning scoreless streak with three runs.
Chase Simpson started it off with a double, followed by a walk to David Andriese. Francisco Aponte hit a two-run double to center field and at that point Anderson was relieved by Jeff Rauh. Rauh was greeted by an RBI double by Deybi Garcia to cut the deficit to 7-3.

Garcia reached third on a passed ball by catcher Brian O'Keefe and Elvis Escobar walked with only one out, but the Jammers couldn't plate any more runs.
Rauh retired the side in the eighth, despite two walks, and pitched a perfect ninth with two strikeouts.
Jerry Mulderig pitched well in relief as he gave up just one hit in three scoreless innings and Julio Eusebio went the final two innings for the Jammers and yielded no runs and a hit.
In falling to 14-19 at home, the Jammers have been outscored 18-6 in the first four games of the homestand.
State College recorded 10 hits with Stone, Thompson and Reyes having two each. The Jammers had only six hits with Simpson and Aponte having two apiece.
Jamestown concludes the home stand against State College at 4:05 p.m. today with Tyler Eppler (1-2, 2.70 earned run average) scheduled to start for the Jammers against Fernando Baez (2-1, 3.68 ERA) for the Spikes.
