JAMESTOWN, N.Y. - If you couldn't make it to Diethrick Park on Friday night, you missed a doozy of a New York-Penn League season opener.
Mahoning Valley tied the score at 4-4 on a throwing error by Jamestown Jammers third baseman Aury Diaz, and the Scrappers scored three more times in the top of the 10th for a 7-5 win.
Jamestown trailed 2-0 in the short-season Single A opener for both before putting up a 3-spot in the bottom of the fifth, keyed by Mahoning Valley's own error to start the inning and, later, an RBI triple by Ryan Fisher.
