Final Stats

Miami, Fla. - Freshman Daniel Zamora (La Puente, Calif.) pitched six innings and allowed just one run on five hits while striking out six, but it wasn't enough to secure the Stony Brook baseball team a victory as the Seawolves were shut out by Florida International 1-0 Sunday at FIU Baseball Stadium.

Head Coach Matt Senk's Reaction
"Today was another terrific job by our starting pitcher, Dan Zamora, and an equally terrific job by Tyler Honahan in relief, but we suffered again from lack of timely hitting and offensive execution. Our offensive problems are correctable and we will do so."

Turning Point
The game ended up being decided in the bottom of the first inning as the Panthers garnered the only run of the game. With runners on first and third and no outs, Nathan Burns blooped a ball into the short outfield that fell in. Freshman Brett Tenuto (Audubon, N.J.) recovered the ball and threw to second to force the runner, but Julius Gaines scored from third.

The Seawolves' best chance to score came in the fifth inning. With sophomore Cole Peragine (Belle Ewart, Ontario) on first base, sophomore Steven Goldstein (East Meadow, N.Y.) pulled a double down the right field line. Peragine was held up at third, but Goldstein also ran to third, setting up a pickle play down the third base line. Peragine was tagged out, ending the inning.
