JAMESTOWN, N.Y. - Sometimes you're the windshield - sometimes you're the bug.
Just ask Jose Urena and the Jamestown Jammers.
Urena pitched a gem in his last outing - an 8-1 win over Auburn on July 8 - and the Jammers entered Thursday's home game with Hudson Valley feeling good after a shutout win (3-0) on Wednesday.
Both Urena's and the Jammers' fortunes faded Thursday as the Renegades roughed up the Jamestown righty and handed Jamestown a 10-1 loss at Diethrick Park.
Jamestown actually staked out an early lead in the game before surrendering 10 unanswered runs. Rand Smith led off with a single and advanced 90 feet on a groundout by Austin Barnes. Brent Keys' single moved Smith to third and he scored by stealing home during the next at-bat.
In the top of the second, Urena and the Jammers ran into trouble. Tanner Biagini and Cesar Guillen led off with singles and Biagini scored on an RBI double by Ray Church. Moments later, Chris Winder sent a two-out Urena pitch over the left field wall to make it 4-1.
Urena was pulled after five and two-thirds innings, allowing four runs on eight hits and striking out three. Unlucky for the Jammers, the bullpen didn't fare much better.
Hudson Valley got runs in the seventh off of reliever Frankie Reed and added two more scores in the top of the ninth. Those two runs were charged to Stephen Richards.
The Jammers (16-11) ended Thursday's game with just five hits to the Renegades' 15. Smith and Keys had two hits each and Josh Adams added the other.
The rubber match of the three-game set is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. Friday at Diethrick Park. A three-game series with Mahoning Valley starts Saturday night as the Jammers' eight-game homestand continues into next week.
