Zarosinski didnt allow a hit through the first five innings against the University of the Redlands, lifting the Bruins to a 12-1 victory in the season opener Saturday.
The Bulldogs connected for three hits and a run in the sixth to break up the no-hit bid, but GFU had already posted all 12 of its runs by then.
The Bruins held a 2-1 lead over La Verne heading into the fifth inning of Saturdays nightcap, but the Leopards rallied for four two-out runs to pin a 6-3 loss on former Newberg High School standout Sam Morland in his George Fox debut.
The Bruins bounced back Sunday, getting a combined seven RBIs from newcomers Zach Rapacz and Clay Mott to outlast Northwest Conference rival Whitman 11-9.
