Bourquin's Three Run Double Gives RedHawks Extra Inning Win

Little Falls, NJ – Unable to hold a 3-1 lead, the New Jersey Jackals fell to the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks by a score of 7-4 in extra innings on Friday night at Yogi Berra Stadium.

The RedHawks jumped to an early first inning lead, as leadoff man Zach Penprase reached base on a throwing error by Jackals starter Brandon Moore. After stealing second base and being moved to third base on a single by Nic Jackson, Penprase scored on a sacrifice fly by second baseman CJ Retherford.

The Jackals answered back in the fourth inning. Chris Duffy walked to start the inning, and later was driven in by Bryan Sabatella on a RBI single. Danny Rams followed Sabatella by reaching base on a fielding error by CJ Retherford.

Gaetano Giunta fouled a tough inside pitch off his foot, then drove the next pitch he saw into right field for a two run single, which gave the Jackals a 3-1 lead.

Brandon Moore was phenomenal in his second start for the Jackals. Only allowing the one run in the first inning, Moore allowed three hits in his six strong innings pitched, striking out for RedHawk hitters. This was Moore’s longest outing of the season; he missed most of the season due to elbow tendonitis.

Unfortunately Moore picked up a no decision in this ballgame.

Corey Young, in his NJ Jackals debut, struggled, as he failed to record an out. Young walked Keith Brachold to lead off the top of the seventh inning, and then allowed a RBI triple to deep left center field to Tim Alberts. His night would end one batter later, after he hit Ronnie Bourquin on the first pitch of the at bat.

Tim Adleman would come into the game with runners on first and third with no outs, retiring all three batters he faced. One of Young’s earned runs scored after he left the game, as Buddy Sosnoskie hit a hard groundball right back at Adleman, whose only play was to first base.

The RedHawks reclaimed the lead in the top of the eighth inning. Nic Jackson hit a one out double, his third hit on the day, and was brought home on a fielding error by shortstop Jeremy Barnes.

The lead would not last for long! A Chris Duffy walk was followed by a lineout by Nick Giarraputo. Trying to double up Duffy at first, shortstop Zach Penprase threw the ball into the stands, allowing Duffy to go to third base on the two base error. Duffy later scored on a wild pitch by Nathan Kilcrease.

This ballgame would head into extra innings, and Fargo-Moorhead would capitalize. Nic Jackson once again gave the Jackals a hard time, reaching on a single and stealing second base a few pitches later. Keith Brachold was intentionally walked, and Tim Alberts followed after with an infield single. Ronnie Bourquin was the hero, as his two out double cleared the bases and gave the RedHawks a three run cushion.

Chase Johnson picks up the win for the RedHawks. Johnson entered the game in the ninth inning, striking out Jose Cuevas with the winning run on second base with two outs.

The Jackals (17-15) continue their four game series with the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks tomorrow night, with first pitch scheduled for 6:35 pm. After tomorrow night’s game, a fireworks display will be held for all fans in attendance.

The New Jersey Jackals, proud members of the Canadian-American Association of Professional Baseball, play their home games at Yogi Berra Stadium located on the campus of Montclair State University in Little Falls, NJ. 2013
