Rowan Wins Second Straight, now 15-8 and 3-5 in Conference

CAMDEN, NJ – Jason Morgan and Pat Defeciani each homered, and Tyler Cannon and Karson Harcourt had three hits each as #18 Rowan held off a late rally by Rutgers-Camden to take a 9-8 win in the second game of the NJAC baseball series. Rowan wins its second straight to improve to 15-8 and 3-5 in the conference.  


Morgan and Defeciani each homered for the second straight game to lead the way, with Defeciani picking up three RBI. Cannon was 3-for-5 while Dylan Maria had two hits as the Profs recorded 14 hits to build up a 9-4 lead in the game.  


Zach Coluccio (4-1) earned the victory with Charlie Russell closing out the game for his first career save.  


Rowan scored three runs in the second inning, helped by RBI singles from Kevin Stewart and Cannon, with Defeciani driving in another after being hit by a pitch.  

Rutgers-Camden (18-9; 5-3) forced a 3-3 tie after three innings as it took advantage of two Rowan errors.  


The Profs added three more in the fourth when Sedalis tripled to bring home Cannon, and Defeciani hit a two-run homer, his third round-tripper in two games, to give Rowan a 6-3 lead.  


Rutgers-Camden added another in the fourth after a Rowan error, but Chris Serrano singled in the fifth to up the Profs’ lead to 7-4. Morgan followed with his second homer in two games, a two-run shot that scored Maria, to give Rowan the insurance runs it would need.  


The Scarlet Raptors threatened to tie it in the ninth after a two-run double from Salazar and a two-run single by Richards, while being helped by the Rowan’s fifth error. With the tying run on first, Russell faced two batters and was able to get the final out to seal the victory.
