With a 3-1 victory over Jamestown on Tuesday, State College continued its dominance over the Jammers this season. The Spikes are 8-1 against the Pittsburgh Pirates affiliate with just one game remaining in the New York-Penn League’s regular season. The lone blemish was a 6-5 loss June 23 at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.
Lowell’s 8-7 loss to Aberdeen keeps the Jammers one game up in the wild card race heading into Wednesday’s season finale. If Jamestown wins, it would host Game 1 of the semifinal playoff series against State College on Friday.
Jamestown starter Cody Dickson stifled State College bats early. The left-hander retired the first 11 he faced before Voit singled in the fourth, the only hit Dickson allowed in five innings of shutout baseball. He also struck out five and walked one.
Willy Paulino (2-2) will start for State College on Wednesday. Chad Kuhl (2-4) gets the ball for Jamestown.
