CARY, N.C. (March 9, 2019) – Three runs in the first four innings and 7.1 innings without allowing an earned run by graduate student right-hander Anthony Matarazzo (Medford, Mass.) was enough to get the job done on Saturday afternoon for the Franklin Pierce University baseball team. Senior left fielder Brad Roberto (San Diego, Calif.) and junior first baseman Jonel Ozuna (New York, N.Y.) added a pair of hits each, as the Ravens posted a 6-3, non-conference victory over Cedarville, on the team’s second day at the USA Baseball National Training Complex.
CARY, N.C. (March 8, 2019) – The Franklin Pierce University baseball team opened a seven-day, eight-game trip to North Carolina with a bang on Friday afternoon, as the Ravens plated six runs over the opening four innings. However, it would not be enough in the non-conference tilt against Slippery Rock at the USA Baseball National Training Complex, as The Rock rallied with three in the seventh and four in the ninth to steal a 9-7 win from the Ravens. Junior first baseman Jonel Ozuna (New York, N.Y.) cranked his first home run of the season in defeat for Franklin Pierce.
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (February 24, 2019) – It was a bounce-back day on Sunday morning for the Franklin Pierce University baseball team, after the squad was no-hit on Saturday evening in South Carolina. The Ravens posted nine runs on eight hits on Sunday, as they wrapped up their five-game, season-opening trip with an 8-7 win over non-conference opponent Mercy at The Ripken Experience. Franklin Pierce got home runs in the game from junior shortstop James Boria (Massapequa, N.Y.) and freshman designated hitter Jethro Hurt (New York, N.Y.).
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (February 23, 2019) – The third day of the weekend trip to South Carolina did not go quite as well as the first two for the Franklin Pierce University baseball team, which was held without a hit while dropping a non-conference game to NYIT at The Ripken Experience. It was not the cleanest of no-hitters, as eight walks, three errors, two balks, two wild pitches and a hit batter combined to allow the Ravens to score two runs without the benefit of a hit. Still, it was not nearly enough to keep up with NYIT’s seven-run, 14-hit attack, as the Bears dealt the Ravens their first loss of the season, 7-2.
