Hansen struck out 11 while walking just one in a 4-hit performance to boost Newark to a 2-1 record in pool play.
Nick Zegna gave Delaware a 1-0 lead in the top of the 1st on an RBI groundout which scored Joe Silan, who had singled.
Danny Miller doubled the lead in the 3rd with a 1-out RBI single to plate Matt Theodorakis.
Newark's main damage came in the 4th as Drew Emory led off with a solo home run on a 3-2 count, and then 4 batters later Theodorakis hammered his first home run of the regionals, a 2-run shot, to give his team the winning margin.
A Newark win over the Pennsylvania champions tomorrow at 7pm would cement a berth in the regional semifinals, the round where Newark was eliminated last year.
