Baltimore, Md. - Junior William Carmona (Hempstead, N.Y.) went 5-for-6 with four RBI as the Stony Brook University baseball team completed a three-game sweep of the UMBC Retrievers with a 17-1 victory on Sunday. The Seawolves have won 10 straight and 20 of their last 22.

Carmona had nine hits in 12 at-bats in the series and is now hitting .531 with 22 RBI through 14 conference games. Junior Tanner Nivins (Kitchener, Ontario) added four hits and three RBI for the Seawolves, who had a season-high 22 hits.

Junior Travis Jankowski (Lancaster, Pa.) and freshman Steven Goldstein (East Meadow, N.Y.) chipped in with three hits apiece. Senior Evan Stecko-Haley (Coral Springs, Fla.) allowed just one run on five hits in 7.0 innings to pick up the victory.

Jankowski got Stony Brook (34-10, 12-2 AE) off to a fast start, homering to right field to lead off the game. It was the second straight day Jankowski had a home run.

Goldstein added an RBI single later in the first to make it 2-0. The Seawolves added three runs in the second before scoring single runs in the third and fourth to make it 7-0.

UMBC got on the board with a run in the bottom of the fourth but the Seawolves put the game away with four runs in the sixth.

Carmona and freshman Kevin Krause (Staten Island, N.Y.) hit back-to-back RBI doubles to drive in the first two runs of the inning before Goldstein and sophomore Kevin Courtney (Lindenhurst, N.Y.) tacked on run-scoring singles.

The Seawolves return to action on Wednesday, traveling to take on New York Tech.
