Muckdogs Back In 1st After Win Over Jamestown

By Mollie Radzinski

In the battle for first, the Muckdogs (42-26) overtook the lead as they beat rival Jamestown (42-27) by a score of 5-3.  Ramon Delgado (6-1) looked sharp once again in the start, getting the win in his five innings with three hits, one run and seven strikeouts.  Brad Hand (0-2) came out on the losing end for the Jammers, going four and two-thirds innings with six hits, three runs, three walks and five strikeouts.

Batavia started off the offense by scoring three runs in the 2nd inning.  Shane Peterson walked, Christian Rosa singled and Frederick Parejo was hit by a pitch to load the bases.  Chris Swauger then came up with a two RBI single.  In the next at-bat, Edwin Gomez singled to score Parejo.  The Jammers got on the board in the top of the 3rd as Brandon Turner singled and Justin Bass had a RBI triple.

The score remained 3-1 until the Muckdogs added two insurance runs in the 8th.  Charlie Cutler, Parejo and Swauger started off the inning with consecutive base hits to score one.  Jermaine Curtis had a sacrifice fly to score Batavia's fifth and last run of the game.  Jamestown looked to make things interesting in the 9th as they scored two runs on a single and triple, but to no avail.

Curtis ended 2-for-2 with an RBI.  Parejo and Swauger both went 2-for-3; Parejo had two runs scored and Swauger had three RBI.  The Muckdogs now sit half a game up of the Jammers.  Batavia now heads to State College for two games, before traveling to Jamestown again on Wednesday.

A slow game but a meaningful one. Delgado pitched lightsout. His slider was nasty. By the way the best hitter in the league Miguel Fermin (15HR) struck out 2 times and went 0-4

Yes. Yes, Travis will.
If we keep marching on to the championship round, you're going to want to be on board.
Plus, I don't want to do on field anymore. I pale in comparison to the wonderful "Mollie of Albion"
We miss you at Dwyer and hope all is well. Go Kent State!

Its so great that the Batavia Muckdogs are here, they really have become part of everyone's family and are indispensable to our local economy. As a Batavian I'm so proud of their accomplishments this year.

I would like to give a big thank you to the entire Muckdogs organization, from the players, to the coaches, to the management and the interns...I was an intern last semester at a political campaign, we know that we make the world go 'round, right guys? :)...Lets go Muckdogs, *lifts diet coke*, here's to a run at the title!
