How It Happened
- The Bears advanced a runner to third in the top of the first but failed to advance him the final 90 feet and NJCU capitalized, as a two-run single to center from Bill Feehan had them ahead 2-0 after one. Feehan stayed hot in the bottom of the third, blasting a two-run shot to right to double his team's lead (4-0).
- From there, NJCU scored in five-straight innings highlighted by a bases-clearing double from Juan Pena to open up a six-run fifth inning. The Bears' offense couldn't get anything going until they advanced a runner to third in the eighth, but no comeback was in sight as the Gothic Knights' 16-0 advantage remained safe.
For the Bears
- Michael Ryan (2B) and Paul Pellegrino (SB) each went 1-for-3 on the day, and Adam Schwartz stole two bases off of a pair of walks.
- Matthew Rienzi (0.2 IP), J.J. McLaughlin (0.2 IP), and Daniel Egan (1 IP) all pitched scoreless outings in relief.
