Game One Box Score
Game Two Box Score
STONY BROOK, N.Y.-- Freshman catcher Jade Clare drove in three runs in the first game and sophomore outfielder Kelsi Fanelli belted the game-winning homer in the nightcap, leading Stony Brook (23-13, 9-3 AE) to a doubleheader sweep over visiting Binghamton (5-24, 1-11 AE) in an America East Conference doubleheader on Saturday afternoon at University Field. The Seawolves won the opener 11-8 and the finale 3-2.
Clare had a two-run double as part of a five-run third inning, which gave Stony Brook an early 7-0 advantage. Binghamton pulled to within 7-2 in the top of the fourth inning on RBI singles by senior catcher Christina Quijano (Syracuse, N.Y.) and junior third baseman Megan Quinn (Temecula, Calif) but a Bearcat error in the bottom of the fourth inning pushed the deficit back to six runs.
In the top of the fifth inning, Binghamton stormed back to tie the game at 8-8. Senior catcher Mia Bieman (Wingham, Ontario) started off with a RBI double and was followed by RBI singles from sophomore second baseman Sandy Meadows (Buena, Ariz.) and sophomore designated hitter Patty Egan (Sierra Vista, Ariz.). The decisive blow, however, was a two-out, three-run double by senior outfielder Stephanie Woodcock (Harpursville, N.Y.).
Undaunted, Stony Brook responded with three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to pull ahead 11-8. Clare drove in the first run on a RBI single, giving the Seawolves what proved to be the winning run.
Fanelli, meanwhile, broke a 2-2 tie in the second game with a one-out home run in the bottom of the fifth inning. The Bearcats had overcome an early two-run deficit in the top of the third inning as junior outfielder Liz Sequeira (Lakewood, Calif) singled home a run and Woodcock scored on a sacrifice fly. Following Fanelli's homer, however, the Bearcats were held to a pair of walks in the final two innings.
Binghamton and Stony Brook conclude their series on Sunday with a single game at noon.
