RIVERDALE, N.Y. Manhattan freshman left-hander Dan Forman threw seven scoreless innings lifting the Jaspers’ to a 7-0 victory over Siena (7-18, 4-5) this afternoon at Van Cortlandt Park in MAAC baseball action. Ruben Perez and Marc Giordano homered, while Kevin Nieto doubled twice to extend his hit streak to nine consecutive games. Manhattan improves to an even 12-12-1 on the year.


Giordano, a senior designated hitter, broke the scoreless ballgame in the bottom of the third with a two run bomb off the left field scoreboard. Eric Nieto added the second run of the inning courtesy of a Mark Onorati double down the left field line.


The Jaspers added a couple more in the fourth complements of Perez’s two run blast over the left field wall. The homer marked his first of the season and seventh of his career. Perez drove in three RBIs on the afternoon.


Senior Dom Lombardi came around to score after leading off the inning with a double to right.


Manhattan added three runs to the grand total in the fifth, and chased Saints’ starting lefty Craig Marcellus out of the ballgame after just 4.1 innings of work.


Sophomore reliever Mike Gazzola preserved the Jaspers’ seven run advantage shutting down the Saints in the final two innings. Gazzola notched two strikeouts in the shutout effort.


Forman was also dominant on the hill, allowing just two hits and striking out seven leading to his third victory of the season.


With the win, Manhattan takes its three game series with the Saints. The Jaspers travel West Point on Wednesday for its non-conference match with Army. Game time is slated for 3:30 p.m.
