Tommy DeSarno recorded his first varsity win on the mound, scattering two hits over three innings with one earned run, three walks and five strikeouts for the Bulldogs, which improved to 3-0 at home.
“It was another good team win and anytime you can get three wins in a week, it is a good week. Tommy Desarno stepped up on the mound for us along with freshman Logan Solomine. They competed and threw strikes,” said Dayton head coach Michael Abbate. “We are getting better as a team, but have two big conference games this week that we are going to have to play well in to win.”
Sophomore Angel Gonzalez had an RBI-double in the third inning for Roselle (1-3), which fell to 0-3 on the road.
