UPCOMING MILESTONES: Leonard Davis’ next home run will be the 100th of his career... Manager Joe Calfapietra is 12 wins shy of 400 regular-season victories with New Jersey.

Jared Locke, and infielders Kris Sanchez and Nick Giarraputo. The Skyhawks were owned by Floyd Hall Enterprises, which is the same ownership group that owns the Jackals.

A RIVALRY BEGINS: In the first-ever regular-season meeting between the two teams, the Jackals fell to the Bears, 4-3, on Sunday afternoon at Bears and Eagles Riverfront Stadium in Newark. Jackals’ catcher Myron Leslie doubled, homered, and scored a pair of runs, but Bears’ starter Eric Eden allowed just one earned run in 6 2/3 innings to earn the win. The Jackals overcame a 5-1 second-inning deficit to earn the victory last night in game two of the series.

FAMILIAR FACES: Seven players from the Jackals 2010 team are on the 2011 opening day roster, including pitchers Isaac Pavlik, A.J. Wideman, Mike Pontius, and Chris Vasami, and infielders Argenis Reyes, Dan Betteridge, and Mike DeJesus.

JACKAL BITES: The Jackals have allowed a firstinning run in four of their first five contests... The Jackals’ bullpen has allowed just one run in 5 2/3 innings this series after being tagged for eight earned runs over eight innings during the first three games of the season. OPENING ACT: After their 8-4 win at Pittsfield on Thursday, May 26, New Jersey is 11-3 (.786) all-time on opening day. The Jackals have now won their season opener nine times in the past 10 seasons, with the lone loss during that span coming last year. The Jackals also won their fourth straight home opener on May 31 when they downed Newark 7-6. MR. JONES: Designated hitter Mike Jones launched a two-run home run in each of the first two games of the season at Pittsfield. Last season with the Advanced-A Myrtle Beach Pelicans, Jones homered just five times in 97 contests.

LOADED WITH LEFTIES: With five left-handed hitters and three switch hitters on his roster, Jackals’ skipper Joe Calfapietra has the potential to roll out a lineup consisting of eight players who bat from the left side of the plate. JERSEY FRESH: New Jersey’s opening-day roster features five players who hail from the Garden State: Dan Betteridge (Turnersville), Mike DeJesus (Manalapan), Steve Fox (Washington Twp.), Bobby Gagg (Hamburg), and Isaac Pavlik (Rutherford).

JACKALS vs. BEARS 2011.................................................................. 1-1 The Jackals and Bears will be meeting for the first time this season. With their ballparks separated by just nine miles, the Jackals played their inaugural season in 1998 and the Bears followed in 1999. The Bears played in the Atlantic League from their inception through 2010.

FOLLOW THE JACKALS

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: The Jackals added a pair of potential impact players late in spring training. Outfielder Leonard Davis, who hit 20 home runs between Double-A Harrisburg and Triple-A Syracuse last season, signed on May 20. Myron Leslie, a 2009 Can-Am League All-Star with the Jackals, re-signed on May 24 after spending the past year in the Yankees’ organization.

You can listen to every pitch of the 2011 Jackals season live online at jackals.com through a partnership with Stretch Internet. For home games, the live webcast will also be broadcast in-stadium on 88.1 FM. Cody Chrusciel returns for his fourth season as the Jackals play-by-play announcer for all home and road contests. Matt Sutor will join the broadcast for home games. Broadcasts begin ten minutes prior to first pitch.

FLYING EAST: When the Augusta, N.J.-based Sussex Skyhawks announced they would not be operating in 2011 this past winter, several former Skyhawks made their way to the New Jersey Jackals. Ed Ott, who managed the Skyhawks in 2010, returned to the Jackals, where he served as a coach from 2007-09. Players migrating from Augusta to Little Falls include reliever

NEW JERSEY’S LAST CONTEST THREE HOMERS SPARK JACKALS COME-FROM-BEHIND WIN IN HOME OPENER May 31 Recap

Little Falls, N.J. – The New Jersey Jackals used a trio of home runs to overcome an early deficit and defeat the Newark Bears, 7-6, in Tuesday night’s home opener at Yogi Berra Stadium. The Jackals took their first lead of the contest in the bottom of the eighth inning when center fielder Chris White followed a leadoff double from right fielder Jeremy Slayden by crushing a two-run home run onto the hill in right field. With the Jackals leading 7-6, right-hander Steve Fox entered in the bottom of the ninth inning and retired the first two hitters of the frame before southpaw Jeff Gogal picked up the game’s final out to earn his first save of the season. Trailing 5-1 in the middle of the first inning, New Jersey plated the game’s next four runs to even the score. In the bottom of the second, Slayden launched a solo homer to right to make it 5-2. An inning later, The Jackals plated a pair of runs to pull within one when Myron Leslie doubled and scored on a Mike Jones single and Jones came around on a fielders’ choice. The Jackals tied the game at five when third baseman Nick Giarraputo connected on his first home run of the season to lead off the sixth inning. Newark re-gained a 6-5 lead in the eighth inning when center fielder Tim Raines Jr. roped a one-out triple to right field following a leadoff single by catcher Billy Alvino. Jackals’ starter Isaac Pavlik, who in the second inning passed John Kelly to become the Can-Am League’s career leader in innings pitched, was tagged for five runs (four earned) over the first two innings of the game before settling down and finishing his outing with 4 1/3 scoreless frames. Pavlik surrendered nine hits while striking out seven batters and walking just one. Newark starter Alex Smith allowed four runs on five hits in five innings. Neither starter factored in the decision with New Jersey’s Jared Locke picking up the win and Newark’s Andrew Pluta absorbing the loss after working the final three innings. Jackal Bites: The win was the Jackals fourth straight in their home opener with their last loss coming in 2007… Argenis Reyes, who committed just two errors in 33 games with the Jackals last season, made his second error of the 2011 season in the fifth inning on Tuesday night… In the win, New Jersey collected a season-high six extra-base hits… In two starts this season, Pavlik has struck out 17 batters and walked just two.
