UNION – Freshman Greg Baruka (Florham Park) tossed a complete-game shutout to lead #12/19 Kean University past the College of Staten Island, 8-0, Tuesday afternoon at Jim Hynes Stadium.

The Cougars plated an early run in the bottom of the first as junior Ken Gregory (Pittstown) delivered a two out, RBI single up the middle. KU would score two more in the third as senior Mike Moceri (Yardville) provided an RBI single and junior Nick Nolan (Linden) added an RBI sacrifice fly.
The Cougars were led by junior Chris Carrano (Lincoln Park) as he was 3-for-4 with three RBI and a double. Senior Dave Zavistoski (Edison) was 3-for-4 with three runs scored and a double while Moceri was 2-for-4 with a triple and two RBI.
For the Dolphins, junior Pat Gale (Staten Island, N.Y.) was 2-for-3.
