(Photo Credit: Matt Brown) A-: JAMESTOWN JAMMERS Box Score Result: State College 3, Jamestown 1 Starting Pitcher: Cody Dickson, LHP (2.37) – 5.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 0 HR Top Hitter: Austin Meadows, CF (.500) – 2-for-3 Other Notable Performers: Edwin Espinal, 1B (.287) – 1-for-3 Game Notes: Jamestown lost, but Lowell also lost, so Jamestown didn’t lose any ground in the Wild Card race. Tomorrow is the final day of the season. Jamestown has a one game lead, so a win or a Lowell loss sends them to the playoffs. Cody Dickson threw five innings without an earned run for the sixth time in his last seven starts. The 2013 4th round pick finished his season with a 2.37 ERA in 57 innings, along with a 59:24 K/BB ratio. Austin Meadows picked up two more hits.
