Rowan's Cannon Hit 3 Run Homer; Final 15-7

SANFORD, FL - Tyler Cannon hit a three-run homer  to key a six-run seventh inning, while Jason Morgan went 4-for-5 at the plate, as #16 Rowan rallied for a 15-7 win over St. John Fisher  at historic Sanford Memorial Stadium, as part of the RussMatt Invitational. The win is Rowan's third on the trip as it improves to 4-1.  


Morgan was 4-for-5 with three runs scored a double and an RBI and Cannon was 2-for-4 with three runs and four RBI.  Phil Sedalis went 3-for-4 with two runs, two RBI and three stolen bases and Dylan Maria had two hits, two runs and two RBI.  


Brayden Davis  earned his first win as a Prof in relief as he went 1.2 innings, allowing just one run while striking out two. Zach Coluccio made the start and went 5.1 innings with Seth Colbert and Ronald Barnebei pitching to a batter each in the sixth inning. Shane Sax closed out the game, throwing 1.2 innings and not allowing a run.  


Despite leading 5-1 in the fourth, Rowan found itself trailing 6-5 in the sixth inning. In the seventh, Pat Defeciani was hit by a pitch and moved on a double from Morgan. Marco Mannino drove in one run with a sacrifice fly and then Mason Dorsey's two-out single brought home Morgan to put the Profs ahead, 7-6. With Karson Harcourt having reached base after being hit by a pitch, Cannon sent a shot over the centerfield fence, his fourth homer of the year, to give the Profs a 10-6 lead. Sedalis, the next batter, did the same thing with a solo homer, his second, to increase Rowan's lead to 11-6.  


The Profs added two more in the eighth as Morgan hit a double that brought home Maria, who had walked, and Chris Serrano doubled down the right field line to score Morgan. 

Rowan opened the game with a run in the first inning as Sedalis singled, stole second and scored on a single by Anthony Schooley. 


The Profs added two in the second as Morgan led off with a walk, advanced on an error and scored when Harcourt singled. Harcourt eventually moved on to third and then came home on an RBI single by Cannon to give Rowan a 3-0 lead.  


St. John Fisher (2-8) got one run in the second before Rowan tacked on one more in each of the next two innings. In the third, Maria hit his fifth home run in three games, giving him six on the year already. And in the fourth inning, Cannon was hit by a pitch and advanced on an error, then scoring when Sedalis stroked a single to left field to increase the Profs' lead to 5-1.  

In the fourth, the Cardinals loaded the bases with two singles and a hit batter, and Jake Meeker tied the game, 5-5, with a grand slam over the right field fence.  SJF took a 7-6 lead in the sixth inning on a sacrifice fly.  


The Profs will be back at Northeast Regional Park in Davenport on Sunday when they face the Milwaukee School of Engineering at 12:15 p.m.
