Prior to this outing he had given up eight earned runs in 26 innings over his previous four starts. Ryan Beckman came in and threw two shutout innings.

Alen Hanson was out with a leg cramp.   A: WEST VIRGINIA POWER Box Score Result: Lakewood 3, West Virginia 0 Starting Pitcher: Jason Creasy, RHP (3.21) – 5.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 6 K, 0 HR Top Hitter: Barrett Barnes, CF (.264) – 2-for-5 Other Notable Performers: Dilson Herrera, 2B (.274) – 1-for-4, 2B Game Notes: Check out John Dreker’s live game report.   A-: JAMESTOWN JAMMERS   Box Score Result: Auburn 8, Jamestown 5 Starting Pitcher: Dovydas Neverauskas, RHP (0-2, 6.52) – 4.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 1 K, 2 HR Top Hitter: Michael Fransoso, SS (.344) – 2-for-5, SB Other Notable Performers: Jeff Roy, LF (.226) – 1-for-4, 2B, BB, SB Jared Lakind, LHP (0.00) – 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 0 HR Game Notes: Dovydas Neverauskas had a great debut, throwing five innings with no walks and one earned run.
