Persichina Provides Winning Run As Hawks Beat Jackals In 12
Sussex 2B Joe Persichina motored for a run-scoring triple in the top of the 12th to break a deadlock and edge New Jersey 5-4. Sussex had built a 4-2 lead before the Jackals plated single runs in the seventh and eighth innings to force extra frames. Sussex reliever Jared Locke then pitched three scoreless innings and earned his third win when the Skyhawks took the lead. New Jersey had the winning run at the plate with one out in the bottom of the 12th before Sussex's Tim Stringer induced a game-ending double play.
