-- Eighth round pick Austin Coley had a rough debut as Jamestown got hammered by Williamsport, 12-5.  Coley failed to get out of the 2nd inning as a two-out error led to six unearned runs.  Coley went one and two-thirds, allowing three hits and two walks, and striking out none.  Twenty-second rounder Eric Karch also made his debut, giving up a run in one inning.  Gushue was 2-5 with his third and fourth HRs and three RBIs.  Chase Simpson added his first pro HR.  Carl Anderson was 2-4.
