Softball silenced at Quinnipiac in non-conference finale
May 1, 2012
Hamden, Conn. - The Stony Brook softball team dropped its regular season non-conference finale on Tuesday, falling 4-0 at the hands of Quinnipiac in Hamden, Conn. Sophomore Nicole Hagerty had two of the Seawolves' four hits on the day as the team fell to 33-14-1 overall. The second game of the scheduled doubleheader was canceled due to inclement weather.
Sophomore Christine Lucido (Melville, N.Y.) took the ball in the circle and tossed a complete game with five strikeouts. Lucido held the Bobcats (29-15) scoreless in five of her six innings of work, but was tagged for four runs in the bottom of the second, which proved to be the difference in the game.
Quinnipiac recorded all five of its hits in the inning, including a three-run home run by catcher Ashley Heiberger.
Stony Brook threatened to chip away at the deficit in the sixth when Hagerty and senior Bernadette Tenuto (Audubon, N.J.) posted back-to-back two-out singles, but Bobcats starter Katie Alfiere induced a pop up to end the threat.
The Seawolves left six runners on base in the game and were held without a run for the second time in the last four games.
Stony Brook will conclude the regular season this weekend in a pivotal three-game showdown against Albany. The Seawolves continue to lead the America East with a 12-2-1 record, while the Great Danes are second at 12-3.
