NEW JERSEY HALTS WIN STREAK
June 1, Augusta, NJ – Isaac Pavlik silenced the Miners bats for eight innings on Thursday night as the New Jersey Jackals defeated the Sussex County Miners by a score of 6-1 at Yogi Berra Stadium. The loss snapped the Miners winning streak at six games.

Giarraputo would be the only Miner with multiple hits, as he went 2 for 4 in the contest. Ari Kaufman (0-1) went five innings in getting the loss. For the Jackals, Conrad Gregor hit two solo home runs to help pace New Jersey.
