Baseball rolls past Fairleigh Dickinson
March 7, 2012
Teaneck, N.J. - The Stony Brook University baseball team pounded out 16 hits and scored seven runs in both the fourth and fifth on its way to a 17-5 victory over Fairleigh Dickinson on Wednesday afternoon. Junior Maxx Tissenbaum (Toronto, Ontario) hit a grand slam and junior William Carmona (Hempstead, N.Y.) also homered to lead the SBU offense.
The Seawolves (5-3) had 12 different players record a hit as they set season-highs for hits and runs. Senior Pat Cantwell (West Islip, N.Y.) had two hits and scored three runs while freshman Cole Peragine (Belle Ewart, Ontario) had two hits and two RBI.
Freshman right-hander Matt Gallup (Albany, N.Y.) allowed one hit in 2.0 scoreless innings to pick up the victory.
Junior James Campbell (Bridgeport, Conn.) and sophomores Joshua Mason (Woodland Hills, Calif.), and Josh Barry (Seaford, N.Y.) each tossed a scoreless inning. The game was called after seven innings due to darkness.
Stony Brook led 3-2 after the third but then broke the game open with the seven runs in the fourth highlighted by a two-run double from freshman Michael Roehrig (Lindenhurst, N.Y.) and a three-run shot from Carmona.
SBU then tacked on seven more runs in the fifth with the help of Tissenbaum's grand slam.
The Seawolves now travel to Minneapolis for the Dairy Queen Classic beginning on Friday with a pair of games against Kansas.
