Blue Sox snap losing skid

UTICA — The Utica Blue Sox snapped a four-game losing streak on Saturday night, beating the Jamestown Tarp Skunks 5-1.

The Blue Sox offense got started by a double from Dewey Roden, a graduate of Vernon-Verona-Sherrill, in the first inning that brought in Brady Short to make it 1-0. In the third Short scored again, this time off of a Will King single.

The 2-0 advantage was all the Utica pitching would need as Jacob Roettgen threw five scorless innings and striking out eight. He was replaced by Sam Thompson in the sixth who picked up where Roettgen left off.

The only Jamestown run came with two outs in the ninth. Thompson and Roettgen combined to allow five hits in the game.

The five Utica runs were driven in by five different players, highlighted by three insurance runs in the sixth.

The Blue Sox were back in action Monday on the road against the Adirondack Trail Blazers. Results were not available at press time. The team returns home to host the Auburn DoubleDays at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Murnane Field at Donovan Stadium.
