Seawolves Fall 4-2 at Vermont
May 15, 2005
Burlington, Ver. - A three-run seventh inning broke a 1-1 tie and propelled Vermont to 4-2 victory over the Stony Brook baseball team on Sunday afternoon at Centennial Field. The loss drops the Seawolves to 22-26 this season and evens their America East record at 9-9. The Brook stands in sixth place in the America East heading into the final week of the season, but still can qualify for the four-team conference tournament.
The Seawolves took a 1-0 lead in the first inning as Andrew Larsen drew a leadoff walk and came around to score on a double play off the bat of Isidro Fortuna. Stony Brook starter Tom Koehler held the one-run lead until the sixth inning, when Miguel Magrass tripled and scored on Stony Brook error two batters later.
Vermont broke the tie an inning later with three runs to take a 4-1 lead. Another Stony Brook error led to the first run of the inning before Magrass doubled home a run and Kyle Massie added an RBI single.
Matt Devins hit a solo home run to lead off the eighth inning but that was all the Seawolves could muster as Vermont held on for the 4-2 final.
Koehler threw six strong innings in a no-decision, allowing just one unearned run on four hits while striking out five. Matt Restivo (4-4) suffered the loss.
Devins went 3-for-3 to lead the Seawolves at the plate, while Larsen and Chris Sipp added two hits apiece.
The Seawolves will be back in action next weekend at home versus Northeastern, playing a single game on Friday at 3 p.m. at Suffolk Community College and a doubleheader on Saturday back at University Field starting at 11 a.m. The Seawolves need to sweep all three games from the Huskies to have any hope of making the postseason.
