Stony Brook, N.Y. - The Stony Brook baseball team ran into one of the hottest teams in the country, falling to Bryant, 10-0, as the Bulldogs extended their winning streak to 19 games Tuesday at Joe Nathan Field. Sophomore Cole Peragine (Belle Ewart, Ontario) led the Seawolves by reaching base in all four of his plate appearances.
Although Stony Brook surrendered 10 runs, the Seawolves had a chance to set the tone early and change the course of the game. In the first inning and the game scoreless, freshman Jack Parenty (Wantagh, N.Y.) smacked a hard-hit single to center and moved to second on Peragine's opposite field single through the left side. After a flyout, junior Kevin Courtney (Lindenhurst, N.Y.) drew a walk to load the bases. Unfortunately for Stony Brook, freshman Johnny Caputo (Toronto, Ontario) hit a bouncing grounder to shortstop that led to a 6-4-3 double play and the end of the inning.
Bryant went on to score two in the second and then scored in all but one inning thereafter to pull away while the Seawolves managed only four hits and left eight men on base.
Inside the Numbers
- Peragine is now 15 for his last 36 at the plate, good for a .417 average in a nine-game span.
- Courtney walked a season-high three times in the game.
- Junior Josh Barry (Seaford, N.Y.) started and gave up three runs on three hits in two-plus innings. He suffered his first loss of the season.
- Redshirt freshman Nick Brass (Shirley, N.Y.) pitched a season-high five innings.
The Seawolves will host NYIT at Joe Nathan Field Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.
