Final Stats

Wilmington, N.C. - The Stony Brook baseball team suffered a 15-4 loss at the hands of the San Diego Toreros Sunday at the Hughes Bros. Challenge on the UNC Wilmington campus.

Freshman Johnny Caputo (Toronto, Ontario) had a two-run double for the Seawolves, and fellow freshmen Jack Parenty (Wantagh, N.Y.) and Austin Shives (San Diego, Calif.) each had multi-hit games to lead Stony Brook.

Head Coach Matt Senk's Reaction
"San Diego lived up to their preseason national ranking today especially their offense. We are looking forward to getting back home to work on improving in every aspect of the game."

Turning Point
Stony Brook fell behind San Diego 3-0, but fought back to tie the game at 3-3 on Caputo's two-run double to center in the top of third. However, it was all Toreros after that. They scored six times in the bottom of the third, the big blows coming at the beginning of the inning as Andrew Daniel stroke a home run to lead off the inning, Kris Bryant then walked before Dillon Haupt smashed a two-run home run to center, the first of two homers on the day for him. In just three batters, it was 6-3 San Diego, and it was 9-3 before the inning ended.

The Toreros tacked on two runs in fourth and fifth to put the game out of reach.
