NJ Jackals Shut Out Defending Champs

by Steven Bassin | Posted on Saturday, June 7th, 2014

The New Jersey Jackals kept their hot start going on Friday night at Yogi Berra stadium. The Jackals defeated the defending Can-Am league champions the Quebec Capitales 3-0, to start off the their three game series. The Jackals, behind a strong performance by their starting pitcher, Gabriel Perez, and timely hitting helped them beat Quebec and improve to 3-1 against the defending champs this season.

Perez was lights out for the Jackals. He pitched seven shutout innings, giving up six hits and striking out three. Perez was not just the only pitcher that night in the game. The Capitals starting pitcher, Zach Staniewicz, was just as good as Perez. Staniewicz pitched six scoreless innings before faltering in the seventh. Staniewicz gave up a double to the Jackals second baseman, Alonzo Harris, and left with the game tied at 0-0 in the seventh. That’s when the Jackals offense started to erupt.

After the Jackals right fielder, Carlos Mesa, was hit by a pitch, the Jackals first baseman, Jon Talley, hit an RBI to give the Jackals the lead. Talley, on the big hit said, “It felt amazing. It always feels good to help your team win and I was able to get the job done at that moment.” After Talley’s hit, Jackals third baseman, Jose Cuevas, helped add to the Jackals lead by hitting a two-run double to put the Jackals up 3-0. Cuevas, on the hit and his performance in the game said, “It feels good. You definitely play more comfortable in the ninth inning knowing you have a three run lead. It feels good to get the hit and I felt I had a good game overall.”

The Jackals bullpen would keep the game at 3-0 in the last two innings. Both relievers, Shaun Ellis and Salvador Sanchez, each pitched a scoreless inning with Sanchez earning the save, his sixth of the season.

With the win, the Jackals improved to 9 and 4 on the season, and will finish off their three game series with the Capitales Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Winning the first game of the series really hyped up the Jackals. Talley said “Feels great to get a W and start the series off with a win with a great ball club that they are and, hopefully, we can build on this win for the next two games in the series.”

The Jackals also, with this win, add to their lead in the Can-Am league standings. They are now up three games over the Capitals.

Hi my name is Steven Bassin and I am happy to have an internship at Double G Sports this summer. I am currently going into my junior year at Fairleigh Dickinson University where I am majoring in Communications with a minor in Multimedia Journalism. I have been involved with sports my whole life. I am currently a college football player at Fairleigh Dickinson University, but also participated in baseball and wrestling in high school as well. I am big New York football Giants and New York Yankees, but I am most importantly a sports fan who follows every team or player for NFL,MLB,NBA, and Minor League Baseball. If you need any facts or information about a team or player in those sports I am the guy to ask. I can tell you where a player is from, to where he went to college, to even his strength & weaknesses on the field. I am really looking forward to being a part of Double G Sports this summer and can't wait to start writing about sports.
