Pavlik And Jackals Overcome All Obstacles To Take Game ThreeJuly 13, 2012 - Canadian American League (Can-Am) New Jersey Jackals
On a humid, mid-summer night at Yogi Berra Stadium, the Jackals sent ace Isaac Pavlik to the mound. The southpaw threw seven innings and allowed three runs on ten hits. With the win, he moves to 6-1 on the season and adds four strikeouts to his season total.
The Boulders came into this one on a six-game win streak. Boulders starter Will Hassett allowed three runs on six hits, exiting the game after the fifth inning. He earns the no-decision.
Dan Jurik came on in relief of Hassett, allowing four hits including the go-ahead run in the sixth inning. He drops to 3-3 on the year.
After dropping the first two games of this five-game set, the Jackals were down 2-0 in the bottom of the fourth. Angel Berroa cut the deficit in half with a home run to lead off the frame, his 12th of the season. Nick Giarraputo would single in two runs later in the inning. He now has 47 RBIs this season, tied for second in the league.
Qualon Millender's RBI single to right tied the ballgame in the fifth.
With two outs and no one on in the sixth inning, the lights dimmed at the ballpark, causing a 20-minute delay. Jurik came back and allowed a Guzman double, followed by former Boulder Matt Nandin's RBI single to put New Jersey up 4-3.
Second baseman Matt Cusick paced the Jackals, going 3-4 with one run scored. Guzman went 2-3 on the day including his game-winning run.
The Boulders' Landis Wilson got the scoring started off in this one with a solo shot to left in the top of the second, his second home run of the year. A run-scoring double play by Ryan Scoma would extend the Boulders lead in the next inning.
Keith Cantwell earns his eighth save on the year after pitching a scoreless ninth inning.
The Jackals snap the Boulders' six-game win streak and move to 29-23 on the year. The Boulders are now 26-26 but still lead the five-game series two to one. With the first-place Quebec Capitales also winning tonight, the Jackals remain five-and-a-half games back of first place as the Boulders move to seven-and-a-half games back.
These two teams will face off once again tomorrow night at Yogi Berra Stadium. Fresh off his third win of the season, right-hander Kyle Greenwalt (3-1, 4.13) gets the ball for New Jersey. Fellow righty Bobby Blevins (4-6, 4.20) goes for Rockland. First pitch is slated for 6:35 p.m.
