Baseball Outlasts High Point, 6-4
March 7, 2004
High Point, N.C. - Nick Theoharis broke a 4-4 tie with a two-out, two-run single in the top of the ninth inning as the Stony Brook baseball team defeated High Point 6-4 on Sunday afternoon at Erach Field in High Point, N.C. The win completed a three-game sweep over High Point and improved the Seawolves record to 4-5 on the season.
Theoharis completed a two-out rally for the Seawolves in the ninth inning with the game winning hit that scored Matt Devins and Cole Cicatelli. After High Point recorded two quick outs, Devins reached base with an infield single and Cicatelli got on after being hit by a pitch. High Point then intentionally walked Isidro Fortuna after a wild pitch by Kevin Shorey allowed Devins and Cicatelli to advance to second and third, setting the stage for Theoharis. Kris Bakey (1-1) retired the Panthers in the bottom of the ninth and picked up the win.
High Point came back from two runs down to tie the game at four in the bottom of the eighth inning. Rey Rojas evened the score with an RBI single after an RBI fielder's choice by Anthony Bell plated the first run of the inning.
Stony Brook broke a 2-2 tie in the top of the sixth on a two-run home run by Kevin Solano, his second round tripper in as many days.
Theoharis led the Seawolves at the plate, going 3-for-4 with 3 RBI and a run scored, while Devins went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run. Starting pitcher Kevin Fitzgerald had an excellent outing, scattering eight hits over 7.1 innings and allowing three runs (two earned) while striking five.
The Seawolves are back in action on Wednesday, March 10, when they travel to Hofstra to take on the Pride at 3 p.m.
