April 25, 2004
Boston, Mass. - The Stony Brook baseball team went deep three times in the first inning and never looked back as the Seawolves pounded Northeastern 13-3 on Sunday afternoon at Friedman Diamond. Kevin Solano went deep twice for the Seawolves, who took two of three games in the series to improve to 16-19, 3-6 in the America East, while Northeastern falls to 16-13, 5-4.
Stony Brook jumped on top of Northeastern immediately as Andrew Larsen led of the game with a home run, and Solano and Nick Theoharis hit back-to-back shots to give the Seawolves a 4-0 lead before Northeastern came to bat. Stony Brook added three runs on three hits and an error in the second inning, before breaking the game open in the fourth. Solano cracked his second two-run shot of the day and Will Brumfield plated Theoharis with an RBI single to give SB a 10-2 lead after four innings of play.
The Seawolves added single runs in the sixth, seventh and ninth innings, as Isidro Fortuna capped the scoring with a solo homer, the fifth Stony Brook roundtripper of the day, to give SB a 13-2 lead heading into the bottom of the ninth.
Northeastern scored a single run in the bottom of the ninth to make it 13-3, but that was all the Huskies could manage as Nick Abel recorded the final three outs.
The Seawolves pounded out 15 hits on the afternoon, as five players had multi-hit games. Solano went 2-for-4 with four RBI, while Larsen was 3-for-6 with an RBI and two runs scored and Chris Sipp went 3-for-3.
Matt Restivo (1-0) earned his first win of the season, throwing 6.0 innings of three-hit ball while striking out five Northeastern batters.
Miguel Paquette was 1-for-3 with two runs scored for the Huskies.
The Seawolves are back in action on Tuesday afternoon when they travel to St. Francis College (N.Y.) to take on the Terriers at 3:30 p.m.
