STONY BROOK, N.Y.-- Colleen Mathes fired a three-hit shutout in the opener and Taylor Chain belted a grand slam in the finale, leading Stony Brook (19-24, 5-9 AE) to a sweep over visiting Binghamton (20-19, 8-5 AE) in an America East softball doubleheader on Saturday afternoon at University Field. The Seawolves won the first game 3-0 and the nightcap 6-1.

Stony Brook went to work in the first inning of the opener, taking a 1-0 lead when Bernadette Tenuto smacked an RBI double which scored Jessica Combs. The Seawolves then added another run in the third as Combs knocked in Lauren Maloney with an RBI single to left. Stony Brook tacked on a third run in the fifth when Alyssa Hawley scampered home on a fielding error.

Mathes, who improved her record to 12-15, struck out nine batters and issued only a pair of walks. Junior Kristen Emerling took the loss and is now 7-6. Two of the three runs she allowed were unearned.

Junior outfielder Meghan Tucker went 2-for-2 in the first game.

Chain, meanwhile, capped a six-run bottom of the fifth inning of game two with a two-out grand slam. Hawley and Combs drove in the other two runs.

The lone Bearcat run came when Tucker scored on a sacrifice fly by freshman pinch hitter Demi Laney in the top of the seventh inning.

Mathes shut down the Bearcats again in the second game, striking out another nine batters and allowing just three walks. Sophomore Rhoda Marsteller was tagged with the loss and is now 8-9.

Sophomore outfielder Jessica Phillips, who leads the conference with a .467 batting average, went 0-f0r-2 during the doubleheader but drew three walks.
