Stony Brook, N.Y. - Freshman Jack Parenty (Wantagh, N.Y.) and sophomore Cole Peragine (Belle Ewart, Ontario) each drove in two runs, but the Stony Brook baseball team fell short of defeating Marist, losing to the Red Foxes, 12-6, Tuesday afternoon at McCann Field.
Stony Brook's defense suffered on the day, committing a season-high six errors. Six of Marist' 12 runs scored were unearned.
Head Coach Matt Senk's Reaction
"Any time you give a good team like Marist more than 27 outs and not hit the ball consistently hard, it's a recipe for disaster, and that's what took place today."
In the fourth inning, Stony Brook was trailing 4-1 and allowed the game to get away by giving up five runs to Marist. With the bases loaded, Zachary Passerelle drove an 0-2 pitch from junior Josh Barry (Seaford, N.Y.) into left field for a two-run single. Then back-to-back Seawolves errors brought home two more runs as the Red Foxes took a commanding 9-1 lead.
Stony Brook did not give up, scoring runs in each of the final three innings, but fell short in its rally.
Inside the Numbers
- Parenty doubled down the right field line in the ninth inning to bring home two runs and extend his hitting streak to 18 games.
- Peragine's RBI came on a sacrifice fly and a groundout.
- Sophomore Steve Goldstein (East Meadow, N.Y.) hit his first triple of the season as part of a 1-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored day.
- Freshman Tyler Honahan (Parker, Colo.) took the loss after surrendering four runs on three hits in 2-1/3 innings. However, all four of the runs he allowed were unearned as Stony Brook committed a season-high six errors.
- Junior Josh Mason (Woodland Hills, Calif.) had his first plate appearance of the season and got a single in the ninth inning. He has been primarily used as a reliever this season.
The Seawolves return to conference play this weekend as it plays on the road at Albany Saturday and Sunday. The Seawolves and Great Danes are tied for third place in America East at 4-5.
