Stony Brook, N.Y. - The Stony Brook University baseball team pounded out a season-high 17 hits on its way to a 14-5 victory over the Marist Red Foxes on Wednesday at Joe Nathan Field. Junior William Carmona (Hempstead, N.Y.) led the Seawolves with three hits and three RBI.

Freshman Matt Gallup (Albany, N.Y.) allowed one run in 3.0 innings of relief work to pick up the victory.
The teams entered the bottom of the fourth tied 2-2 but the Seawolves (21-9) then exploded for eight runs, seven which came with two outs. Junior Travis Jankowski (Lancaster, Pa.) singled home the first run of the inning with one out and he then moved to third on a Cantwell double.
Junior Maxx Tissenbaum (Toronto, Ontario) popped up for the second out of the inning but the next six Seawolves reached base to push the Stony Brook lead to 10-2. Nivins drove in two runs with a single to center and Peragine capped the inning with a two-run triple.
