Punta Gorda, Fla.– Senior Nick Cesare (South Plainfield) tossed eight scoreless innings as #10 Kean defeated Kenyon College, 18-1, Tuesday afternoon in their conclusion of the 2010 Snowbird Baseball Classic.
Cesare (2-0) allowed just six hits while fanning six to help the Cougars improve to 8-4 this season.
For the second straight game, the Cougar offense exploded, scoring in all frames except two. Kean plated six runs in the second to take an early 7-0 lead. Eddie Jennings (Jackson) got things going with an RBI triple, one of ten extra base hits for KU on the afternoon.
Also in the inning included an RBI single by sophomore Dylan Laguna (Edison), a two RBI double by senior Mike Moceri (Yardville) and a two run blast by sophomore Lee Cavico (North Brunswick).
Kean continued with their offense and built a 12-0 lead after the fifth as Moceri recorded his second homerun of the season, a two run shot. That would be all the offense Kean would need to cruise to the victory.
Offensively Moceri was 3-for-4 with four RBI while Laguna was 3-for-4 with three runs scored. Senior Dave Zavistoski (Edison) was 3-for-4 with three RBI and his first homerun of the season. Continuing the long ball trend, junior Nick Nolan (Linden) hit his third of the year, a solo shot.
Kean concludes their trip to Florida and will play Keystone College on Sunday.
