Marco Meleo hit a two-run triple in the bottom of the eighth inning to lead the Stockton University baseball team to a 2-0 victory over New Jersey City in a play-in game Tuesday to advance to the New Jersey Athletic Conference Tournament.

The eighth-seeded Ospreys advance to the best-of-three quarterfinals against top-seeded Rowan in Glassboro. Games 1 and 2 will be played Friday at noon and 4 p.m., respectively.

Game 3, if necessary, would be played at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Rowan (17-1) features Press-area players Ryan McIsaac (Millville), Donald Zellman (Lacey Township), Ryan Bush (Barnegat) and Garrett Smith (Egg Harbor Township). Stockton has Nick Trifiletti (Mainland), Mike Schiattarella and Andrew Luongo (Southern), Sam Sramaty (Lacey Twp.) and Lacey Township resident Ryan O’Sullivan.

On Tuesday, Phil DeMarco was the winning pitcher for the Ospreys (10-13). He struck out four in eight innings. Tyler Apt earned the save. John Perrino and Dominic Meleo each scored the winning runs. Stockton had five hits.
