St. John Fisher Propels Past Baseball, 7-1

Union, N.J. (3/19/17) – St. John Fisher College used a seven run, second inning to propel past Kean University by the final of 7-1 on Sunday afternoon.

The Cardinals (6-5) plated seven runs on five hits in the frame with three Cougar miscues.  The big blows came off the bats of Evan Ryan with a two-run shot to left and Scott Eisenmenger with a three run blast to left center.  Eisenmenger had another homerun in the game prior to this as St. John Fisher fell to Misericorida in extra innings. 

Kean (9-6) scratched across a single run in the sixth as Ivan Rivera led off with a four pitch walk.  He moved to third on a double off the bat of Derek Walker (pictured left).  Rivera scored on a groundout RBI from Nick Polizzano.

Freshman Anthony Brophy earned the win with six innings of work.  Brophy (4-0) allowed one run and five hits with two walks and one strikeout.  Offensively, Ryan and Justin Graham each had a multi-hit game going 2-for-4 each.

For the Cougars, Frank Urso and Brian Cole each had two hits.

Kean returns to action on Tuesday when they host Keystone College.
