Final Stats

Stony Brook, N.Y. - Behind four home runs and solid pitching, the Stony Brook softball team swept a doubleheader from Fairleigh Dickinson Thursday at University Field.

Sophomore Alexandra Pisciotta's (New Hyde Park, N.Y.) two-run homer provided the run support in a 3-0 victory in game one. Juniors Shayla Giosia (Runnemede, N.J.) and Bria Green (Wheatley Heights, N.Y.) each hit three-run homers as the Seawolves (29-14) won game two, 11-3, in five innings.

Head Coach Megan Bryant Reaction
"Each day, we're thinking about getting better. The best thing about this winning streak has been our ability to be consistent. I like that we seem to be playing our best heading into May."

Game One Recap
Junior Allison Cukrov (Irvine, Calif.) and Fairleigh Dickinson starter Megan Reiner each pitched three scoreless innings before Stony Brook scored in the fourth. Sophomore Melissa Phelan (Saddle Brook, N.J.) walked with one out and Pisciotta drilled a two-run shot to left center.

The Seawolves added another run an inning later after Giosia's sacrifice fly drove in sophomore Kellie Reynolds (Paso Robles, Calif.).

Cukrov, who got out of a jam in the second inning, allowed five hits, walked one and struck out five for her 19th victory of the season.

Game Two Recap
Stony Brook's bats came alive as it scored in all five innings. Already up 2-0 after two, Giosia lifted a ball to left field that just got over the fence for a three-run homer.

 

 

After Fairleigh Dickinson got one back with a home run, Stony Brook countered with two runs in the bottom of the fourth. With runners on first and second and one out, senior Jessica Combs (Hammonton, N.J.) doubled, driving in Green and advancing Reynolds to third. Giosia followed with a grounder to second that was misplayed, allowing Reynolds to score.

Fairleigh Dickinson (14-18) cut the lead to 7-3 after a two-run double from Maddy Wilen.

Stony Brook had runners on second and third with one out in the fifth. Green drilled an outside pitch over the fence in right field for a three-run homer, her team-high 10th of the season, to make it 10-3. Sophomore Patty Borges (Berkley, Mass.) followed with a game-ending home run to left.
