Jason Jarvis did it all on Saturday evening at Ironmen Field and he delivered another gem on the mound and produced a clutch hit in the bottom of the 6th to defeated Moncton Fisher Cats 2-1.

The win moves the Ironmen three games up on the second place Fisher Cats in the four-team league.  The Ironmen set at the top of the heap with a 15-8 record while Moncton is next at 13-12 with Fredericton moving out the basement with an 11-14 record.  Saint John Alpines are on a major slump losing their last nine games.

 On Saturday Jarvis pitched a complete game 2-1 win going the full 7 innings giving up 5 hits,4 walks while striking out 5 and surrendering 1 earned run. He remains the league leader with a 0.84 ERA after 66.2 innings on the mound.

At the plate with two batters on and none out he produced a single that scored one run to tie the game.
