Softball swept by Boston U.

The Stony Brook softball team (8-12, 0-3 AE)  lost three games to Boston University (15-8, 3-0 AE) this weekend.

BU hit four home runs, with Chelsea Kehr blasting a grand slam in each game of Saturday’s double header. All three games ended in just five innings.

Stony Brook lost the first outing 10-1. Junior Alyssa Hawley (Spokane, Wash.) went 2 for 3 and drove in the Seawolves only run in the third, scoring junior Suzanne Karath (Fishkill, N.Y.).

However, this was no match for the Terrier’s offense, which produced three runs in the third inning, six in the fourth, and one in the fifth.

The second game played much the same way, ending 13-2. BU scored early, with four runs off errors in the first.

Stony Brook attempted to battle back, with Hawley scoring on an error in the first inning.

In the second, freshman Jessica Combs (Hammonton, N.J.) scored off sophomore Samantha Rossi’s (Marlton, N.J.) RBI single.

The Terriers completely split the game open in the third, scoring seven runs after a two-run homer by Holli Floetker and Kerh’s second grand slam of the day.

With an effective BU defense shutting them down at every turn, the only time Stony Brook got on base for the remainder of the game was on an error.

The Terriers scored twice more in the fourth inning to cement their lead.

On Sunday, the Seawolves lost, 9-0. BU’s offense assaulted Stony Brook again, with 11 hits and back-to-back home runs in the second inning. Terrier pitcher Erin Schuppert struck out 11 Seawolves and allowed only three hits.

Stony Brook will try to regain its momentum on Wednesday with a double header at University Field against Sacred Heart. The game begins at 2:30 p.m.
