Baseball’s winning streak comes to an end

After winning three games earlier in the week, Stony Brook had its five-game winning streak ended by Holy Cross when it dropped two games on Sunday, 3-1 and 5-3.

Prior to Sunday’s losses, the Seawolves had won eight of their last nine games. They swept Columbia in a doubleheader on Saturday, 6-5 and 11-10, and beat Fordham, 11-2, last Tuesday.

In Tuesday’s game at Fordham, freshman Cole Peragine went 4-for-6, leading the team with 3 RBI.

Senior Pat Cantwell and freshman Steven Goldstein each added two hits.

The Seawolves scored twice in the second and then four more times in the fourth. Freshman Kevin Krause hit a two-run single to make the score 6-0.

Fordham’s scoring in the bottom of the fourth, Stony Brook scored four more times in the sixth to seal the game, highlighted by a two-out two-run single from Peragine.

Freshman starter Matt Gallup threw 3 scoreless and hitless innings. Juniors Will Carmona and G.C. Yerry and sophomores Joshua Mason and Bryan Tatelman each added one scoreless inning of relief.

On Saturday, Stony Brook swept Columbia in two close games.

In the first game, the Seawolves took the lead early on, aided by a two-run double from Krause to make the score 2-0 in the first.

Stony Brook had a 5-0 lead in the third, but Columbia cut the lead to 6-2 in the sixth.

The Lions followed with a one-out, two-run single that made the score 6-4 in the seventh. With the bases loaded and one out, Columbia scored a run on a fielder’s choice.

Sophomore relief pitcher Joshua Mason forced the Lion’s Aaron Silbar to line out to center for the final out, and the Seawolves won 6-5.

Stony Brook came back from a 10-4 deficit to win game two by a 11-10 margin.

SBU had a 4-1 lead in the second game, but Columbia scored six runs in the fifth and three in the sixth to take a 10-4 lead.

An RBI double from Goldstein and a two-run homer from junior Maxx Tissenbaum scored three runs for Stony Brook in the seventh. After scoring three more runs in the eighth, a two-out RBI single from Tissenbaum tied the game at 10.

With two outs in the ninth, senior Sal Intagliata hit a single to left to drive in the winning run.

Tissenbaum went 3-for-5 with three RBI.

In Sunday’s first loss, sophomore pitcher Frankie Vanderka allowed three runs on four hits in 6.0 innings and allowed no walks.

A solo home run from sophomore Kevin Courtney gave SBU a 1-0 lead in the first. But Holy Cross responded with a two-run home run and then an RBI double in the fifth made the score 3-1 and gave the Crusaders the win.

In the second game, senior Evan Stecko-Haley allowed just two runs on five hits in 5.1 innings.

An RBI double from Carmona and a run-scoring single from Tissenbaum gave the Seawolves a 3-1 lead in the sixth.

However, the Crusaders scored in the bottom of the inning to cut the score to 3-2. They then took a 5-3 lead in the eighth after scoring three runs.

A perfect ninth inning from Holy Cross’ pitcher gave the Crusaders the win.

Stony Brook plays again next Saturday, when it will host New York Tech for a doubleheader. First pitch is a 12:00.
