Big second inning sends Oneonta State past No. 4 Kean

UNION, N.J. --  Oneonta State used six consecutive hits in the second inning to plate six runs as the Red Dragons shut down fourth-ranked Kean University by a final of 8-0 on Saturday.

The shutout is the first for the Cougars (13-3) since May of last season against Keystone College in the NCAA Regional Tournament.

With two outs and no one on, the Red Dragons used a quick outburst to jump out to a 6-0 lead in the second. Jon Halligan got things going with a double into the gap. Sean Mullins followed with a single to scratch across the game's first run. Junior Matt Mastroianno delivered the critical hit of the frame with a three run homerun to left.

The Red Dragons (4-8) added two additional runs in the eighth off a single and Cougar miscue to seal the win.

Southpaw Steve Ascher picked up the complete game shutout.  Ascher allowed just four hits on the day, all singles, as he improved to 3-1 this season.

For the Cougars, sophomore Ryan Reitmeyer and junior Andy Lopez each collected two hits on the day.
