Cambridge, Mass. - Stony Brook freshman starter Daniel Zamora (La Puente, Calif.) has been named America East Rookie of the Week for the third time this season, the conference office announced Monday. Zamora is coming off his best game of the season as he tossed eight shutout innings last Sunday at Maine.

Zamora engaged in a pitcher's duel with Maine's Mike Connolly as both threw up zeroes for a total of 17 innings. Zamora matched his career high in strikeouts with nine and was very effective with runners on base, holding the Black Bears hitless in seven at bats with runners in scoring position.

Zamora's performance gave the Seawolves a chance to win, and they did so in the 10th inning as fellow freshman Jack Parenty (Wantagh, N.Y.) delivered an RBI single that held up for a 1-0 final score.

Zamora, who was also America East Rookie of the Week on Feb. 18 and April 1, now has a 3.13 ERA over six conference starts this season. In his last 27-1/3 innings pitched, he has struck out 32 batters.

In total, Stony Brook has had the most Rookie of the Week selections of any team this season, garnering six honors.

Zamora and the Seawolves play a pair of non-conference games this week, taking on Central Connecticut on the road Tuesday and hosting NYIT Wednesday at Joe Nathan Field. Stony Brook will play at Binghamton in an America East three-game series this coming weekend.
