April 20, 2004
Stony Brook, N.Y. - Will Brumfield went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI to lead the Stony Brook baseball team to a 7-5 victory over New York Tech on Tuesday afternoon. With the win the Seawolves improved to 13-18 this season, while New York Tech fell to 10-19.
New York Tech put up single runs in each of the first three innings and held a 3-1 lead after five innings of play. Stony Brook chipped away to tie the game in the bottom of the sixth on a two-run throwing error by Bears' first baseman Tim Smith that allowed Brumfield and Kevin Solano to score.
The Seawolves broke the game open in the bottom of the seventh inning, scoring four runs to take a 7-3 lead. Andrew Larsen led off the inning with a single and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Stephen Didsbury. Larsen scored one batter later on an RBI single by Matt Devins, giving the Seawolves their first lead of the afternoon. Brumfield smacked his second double of the day to score Devins and came around to score on a Christian Diez wild pitch. Nick Theoharis singled and eventually scored on an RBI single by Dave Mischo to finish out the scoring in the inning.
New York Tech chipped away at the lead with a run in the eighth and another run on a solo home run by Mike MacMillan in the ninth, but southpaw Matt Restivo recorded the final three outs to pick up his first save of the season.
Brumfield and Larsen each stroked three hits to pace the Seawolves offense. Kris Bakey (2-1) allowed just one unearned run in 4.1 innings of work to earn his second win of the season.
MacMillan went 2-for-2 with an RBI and two runs scored to lead the Bears. Wayne Seder (1-2) took the loss.
The Seawolves are back in action on Thursday when they travel to Wagner to take on the Seahawks at 3:30 p.m.
