Batavia Muckdogs (SS) - Thumped by Jamestown 13-4

With another shot to close out the Pinckney division, the Muckdogs came up short once again. Batavia's Colt Sedbrook singled in the first and scored on a triple by the ultra-hot Shane Peterson.

The Jammers would then put runs on the board in three separate innings to go up 6-1 going into bottom of the sixth. The Muckdogs put a run on the boar before Jamestown exploded for six runs in the top of the seventh to pull away.

Starter Zachary Pitts was charged with three runs in 4.1 innings. Muckdog ace was knocked around for eight runs in 1.2 innings. The outing raised Nieto's ERA by over a full run.
