The Jackals proceeded to put up four runs in the bottom of the first. The Cuban team showed signs of being young and emotional at times. Displaying passion for the game was great to watch and seeing how invested in the competition the Cubans were was spectacular.The Jackals tacked on another run in the bottom of the second. While the Cuban team fought back and put up three in the top of third, the Jackals solid defense and excellent pitching allowed them to come out victorious by a final of a 5-3.The Jackals are now sitting 26-14 sitting ½ game back of the Quebec Capitales.Art Charles was named CanAm player of the week twice in the month of June.
