May 5, 2005
Poughkeepsie, N.Y. - The Stony Brook baseball team could not overcome a 3-0 deficit at Marist on Thursday afternoon, falling 4-3 to the Red Foxes at the McCann Baseball Field. Stony Brook falls to 18-23 this season, while Marist, winners of 21 of their last 26 games, improved to 22-16 overall.
Marist broke a scoreless tie in their half of the third inning when catcher Keith Glasser raced home on center fielder Travis Musolf's RBI groundout.
The Red Foxes added two more runs in the bottom of the fourth when first baseman Bryan Towler scored on a grounder by second baseman Joe Sargent and Glasser's RBI single to center, scoring Buck two batters later.
The Seawolves closed to with 3-2 with two runs in the top of the sixth when Tom Pennino ripped a two-run single up the middle off Marist reliever Kevin Kelly, scoring designated hitter Isidro Fortuna and centerfielder Andrew Larsen.
The Red Foxes would then post an insurance run they would turn out to need in the bottom half of the inning when pinch hitter Justin Lepore scored Buck on a sacrifice fly to left field.
Pennino knocked in his third run of the afternoon in the eighth with a single to left for the final margin.
Mike Errigo (1-1) suffered his first loss for Stony Brook, throwing four innings and yielding three runs on three hits. He also struck out four and walked three. Marist's Brett Hanson earned the win while Robert Ryan nailed down his seventh save.
Larsen, hitting from the three-hole rather than his usual leadoff spot, led the way for Stony Brook with a 3-for-4 effort, including a double, while Pennino had two hits and three RBI.
The Seawolves are back in action this weekend versus Maine in a crucial three-game America East series. First pitch of Saturday's doubleheader is slated for 12 p.m.
