JACKALS AT A GLANCE: The Jackals and Federals meet for the final time this season in the rubber game of their three-game series tonight. With a win today, the Jackals will move 13 games above .500 for the first time this season. With 44 wins, the Jackals have already eclipsed last season’s win total (42) with 17 games still remaining in the regular season. THE MEN ON THE MOUND: Southpaw Jon Kibler makes his ninth start for New Jersey tonight looking for his first win in a Jackals’ uniform. In his most recent outing last Thursday at Quebec, Kibler took a perfect game into the sixth inning but was knocked out of the contest after allowing four consecutive home runs in the seventh inning as New Jersey fell 11-0. The Federals counter with 23-year-old rookie right-hander Kyle Putnam, who makes his sixth career start. In his lone outing against the Jackals, the Marist College alum allowed just two earned runs on six hits over seven innings in a 3-2 New York loss on July 21. RELIEF REINFORCEMENT: On Thursday, the Jackals signed right-handed relievers Josh Ellis and Kyle Gunderson to help bolster one of the league’s top bullpens. Ellis, a 27-year-old former 11th round pick of the Diamondbacks, boasts four seasons of Triple-A experience and a career ERA of 4.06 over his first five seasons. Gunderson, 26, has pitched briefly at Triple-A in the Marlins’ system and carries a 2.53 career ERA into the 2011 season. To make room on the roster for Ellis and Gunderson, the Jackals have traded rookie reliever Mike Petrowski back to the New York Federals, where he began the season. WHAT A RELIEF: New Jersey relievers have successfully converted 19 of 21 (90.4%) save opportunities this season. Last year, the Jackals converted just 22 of 29 save chances (75.8%). Four different Jackals’ relievers have saved games in 2011. Former Montclair State hurler Jeff Gogal has converted all 13 of his save opportunities.

THE CATALYST: In 21 games since signing with the Jackals on July 25, center fielder Sean Smith is batting .329 with 17 runs scored and is a perfect 16-for-16 in stolen base attempts. The former Rockland Boulder is hitting .394 when leading off innings. FEDERAL FACTS: The Federals, who will play all 94 games on the road, are comprised of the most talented players in the New York State League, a league that serves as the official developmental league of the Can-Am League. The Federals roster is made up of mostly rookies, but they do have a few notable veterans including first baseman Eddie Lantigua and catcher Sandy DeLeon. Lantigua spent nine seasons with the Quebec Capitales where he hit 126 home runs before retiring in 2009. The Federals mark DeLeon’s 13th different team over a 10-year career. Through 77 games, the Federals have utilized a league-high 72 players.

NEW JERSEY’S LAST CONTEST MOORE SHUTS DOWN FEDERALS AS JACKALS TAKE WEDNESDAY MATINEE - Wednesday, August 17 recap Little Falls, N.J. – Right-hander Michael Moore improved to 5-0 over his first seven contests with New Jersey as the Jackals blanked the New York Federals, 2-0, on Wednesday morning at Yogi Berra Stadium. Moore scattered four hits over eight shutout innings, issuing just two walks while striking out seven batters. Jackals’ closer Jeff Gogal followed with a scoreless ninth inning to notch his 13th save in as many chances. With the game scoreless into the sixth inning, New Jersey took advantage of a New York error to open the scoring. With one out in the bottom of the sixth, Myron Leslie reached base when Federals’ second baseman Mike Levy dropped a popup. Two batters later, Nick Giarraputo lined his team-leading 24th double of the season to the gap in right center, scoring Leslie with the game’s first run. The Jackals extended their lead to 2-0 in the bottom of the seventh after Nick Santomauro led off with his second single of the day, stole second, advanced to third on a Chris Anderson sacrifice bunt, and scored on a sacrifice fly to center off the bat of Sean Smith. Federals’ starter Luis Pardo (0-10) pitched well, but suffered the loss after allowing two runs (one earned) over seven innings. The Jackals and Federals meet for the final time this season on Thursday night at 7:05 p.m. when New Jersey sends southpaw Jon Kibler (0-5, 7.12 ERA) to the mound against rookie right-hander Kyle Putnam (1-6, 6.35 ERA) at Yogi Berra Stadium. Cody Chrusciel and Matt Sutor have the call on the live webcast beginning 15 minutes prior to first pitch at www.jackals.com. JACKAL BITES: With the win, Michael Moore improved to 16-8 over his threeyear professional career while New York starter Luis Pardo fell to 1-27 lifetime… Nick Santomauro, who was a late addition to the Jackals’ lineup due to an injury to Jordan Newton, finished 2-for-2 with a walk, a stolen base, and a run scored… New Jersey is now 9-4 against the Federals… The contest took just two hours, 16 minutes to complete.

MOVIN’ ON UP: During an eight-day stretch from July 25 through August 2, the Jackals sold three players to affiliated organizations. On July 25, outfielder Leonard Davis (.317-9-36 w/ a league-leading 18 doubles in 52 games) had his contract purchased by the Washington Nationals and was sent to Double-A Harrisburg. On August 31, second baseman and leadoff hitter Argenis Reyes (.306-2-29 w/ 12 steals in 60 games) was sold to Cleveland and assigned to Triple-A Columbus. On August 2, three-time Can-Am League Pitcher of the Week and July Pitcher of the Month James Leverton (8-4, 2.38 ERA in 13 starts) was sold to the Florida Marlins and assigned to the Single-A Greensboro Grasshoppers. The Jackals have sold 25 players to affiliated organizations since 2006. BIG FISH: On August 1, southpaw James Leverton had his contract purchased by the Florida Marlins. Leverton heads to the Single-A Greensboro Grasshoppers. Leverton, a three-time Can-Am League Pitcher of the Week and the July Pitcher of the Month, was 8-4 with a 2.38 ERA in 13 starts. REYES SOLD TO CLEVELAND: On July 31, the Jackals sold the contract of 2B Argenis Reyes to the Cleveland Indians. The 28-year-old was assigned to the Triple-A Columbus Clippers, where he finished the 2010 season. In 60 games with New Jersey this season, Reyes batted .306 with 12 stolen bases while serving as the Jackals’ primary leadoff hitter. Reyes, who spent parts of the 2008 and 2009 seasons at the major league level with the New York Mets, previously had his contract sold by the Jackals last July when the Boston Red Sox sent him to Triple-A Pawtucket before trading him to the Indians in early August. In 30 Triple-A contests in 2010, Reyes batted .303. NATIONAL TREASURE: On July 25, the Jackals sold the contract of outfielder Leonard Davis to the Washington Nationals organization. Davis reported to Double-A Harrisburg, where he spent parts of each of the past three seasons. Through 52 games with the Jackals this season, Davis batted .317 with 36 RBIs and a team-leading nine home runs. WE’RE GOING STREAKING: During their season-long eight-game winning streak, which ended on June 29, the Jackals outscored their opponents 48-20. In those eight games, New Jersey starting pitchers allowed just 11 earned runs in 53.2 innings, good for a 1.84 ERA. The Jackals’ longest winning streak last season was six games (July 22-28) when they swept a pair of three-game sets against Sussex and Brockton. MR. 400: Manager Joe Calfapietra collected his 400th regular-season win with the Jackals on June 20 in game two of a doubleheader against the New York Federals. Calfapietra entered the season with 386. POWER SURGE: The Jackals tied a franchise record when they launched five home runs in a 10-4 win at Rockland on June 19. Mike Jones and Jeremy Slayden each homered twice while Leonard Davis also left the yard. Twice before in franchise history had the Jackals tallied five home runs in one game: July 18, 1998 at Adirondack and July 28, 1999 at Massachusetts. New Jersey homered 10 times in the three-game series at Provident Bank Park. FOLLOW THE LEADER: 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 Jared Locke, and infielders Kris Sanchez and Nick Giarraputo. The Skyhawks were owned by Floyd Hall Enterprises, which also owns the Jackals. 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. SPRING FLING: In addition to Oakland A’s reliever Craig Breslow (with New Jersey in 2004), who is currently in his sixth major league season, several former Jackals appeared in major league spring training games. 6-foot-7 right-hander Stuart Pomeranz (2009) posted a 3.86 ERA in three relief appearances for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Southpaw Raul Valdes (2006) appeared in seven games (one start) for the St. Louis Cardinals. First baseman John Lindsey (2005-06) went 1-for-4 for the Dodgers. Righty Jon Hunton (2007) made one relief appearances for the A’s.
