Stony Brook baseball downs Fordham, again

There was a familiar foe for Stony Brook baseball on Tuesday and a familiar result. The Seawolves clobbered the Fordham University Rams, 13-1.

Stony Brook is now 11-5 on after having gone 9-1 in their last 10 games.

There were eight overall pitchers for Stony Brook, who had an explosive fourth inning with seven runs.

As for pitcher number one, freshman pitcher Brandon McNitt (Chino Hills, Calif.) threw two scoreless innings to start the game. He allowed one hit in each of the innings but induced a later batter to gound into a double-play.

Those two hits would be the last the Rams would secure until the eighth inning.

In the meantime, the Seawolves would score the first run of the day in the second inning when freshman Joshua Mason (Woodland Hills, Calif.) drove sophomore Travis Jankowski (Lancaster, Pa.) in with a single. Mason would later pitch in the game, and Jankowski would go 3 for 5 overall with two runs and two RBI.

However, the Rams would strike back in the third inning with an unearned run.

Stony Brook would not leave the game tied for long. They exploded for seven runs in the fourth inning and never looked back. Junior Pat Cantwell (West Islip, N.Y.), sophomore William Carmona (Hempstead, N.Y.) and sophomore Maxx Tissenbaum (Toronto, Ontario) each had a two-run double in the inning.

The Seawolves would score a further three runs in the fifth inning. With one out, the bases were loaded. Cantwell scored on a wild pitch. Sophomore Tanner Nivins (Kitchener, Ontario) drove in senior Chad Marshall (Paris, Ontario) with a sac fly. Fordham would make an error that would allow Tissenbaum to skirt home for the final run of the inning.

Stony Brook would finish with 11 hits for the game.

Overall, the eight Stony Brook pitchers would allow only two walks. Sophomore G.C. Yerry (West Shokan, N.Y.), sophomore Jasvir Rakkar (Brampton, Ontario) and Mason each pitched a perfect inning in their time.

The Seawolves will next face Army at West Point in West Point, N.Y. this weekend for a four-game series.
