Stony Brook, N.Y. - The Stony Brook baseball team saw its 15-game home winning streak come to an end with a 4-1 loss to Central Connecticut State Tuesday afternoon at Joe Nathan Field. Three of Stony Brook's five pitchers combined for 5-1/3 shutout innings.
Stony Brook has dropped three straight games to fall to 22-14. Despite the streak, the #Seawolves have still won 22 of their last 30 games. Central Connecticut improves to 14-15 on the season.
Stony Brook was trailing 2-0 in the fourth inning when the #Seawolves put together a little two-our rally. Freshman Connor Doyle (Maspeth, N.Y.), sophomore Johnny Caputo (Toronto, Ontario) and senior Anthony Italiano (Sayville, N.Y.) hit back-to-back-to-back singles to load the bases. Senior Josh Mason (Woodland Hills, Calif.) was then hit by a pitch to bring home Doyle and cut the deficit to one.
Sophomore Jack Parenty (Wantagh, N.Y.) then had a chance to tie the game but he struck out to end the inning.
The #Seawolves were unable to get a runner to second base the rest of the game, and the Blue Devils tacked on two runs in the seventh inning to ensure victory.
