Ken Gregory

TRENTON – Sophomore Ryan Zamorsky pitched a five-hit, complete game shutout to lead the Kean University baseball team to a 3-0 win over Manhattanville College in the opening round of the NCAA Division III Mid-Atlantic Regional on Wednesday evening.

Zamorsky struck out eight for the second-seeded Cougars (35-10), who advance to face New Jersey Athletic Conference rival Rowan University on Thursday evening at 7:45 p.m.


The #7 Valiants (22-20-1) will battle third-seeded Widener University earlier in the day at 1:15 p.m., in an elimination game.

The Cougars quickly took a 2-0 lead in the home half of the first inning, as senior Mike Moceri and junior Ken Gregory had back-to-back run-scoring singles to drive in sophomore Ryan Gibbons and Steve Giambrone, respectively.

Two innings later, Gregory had a one-out double to left-center and came home to score the insurance run two batters later when senior Nick Nolan singled to right-center.

Zamorsky was in control throughout the game, recording three 1-2-3 innings and only allowing one Valiant to advance to third base, as he improved to 2-2 this season.

At the plate, Gregory and Nolan each had two hits and a RBI.

For Manhattanville, starter Steve Arroyo-Falcon (4-5) took the loss, scattering seven hits and five strikeouts, while allowing just two earned runs.

First baseman Chris Nardozzi finished 2-of-4 for the lone multi-hit game for the Pride.
