The Black Bears took care of business in the first contest in a pitcher’s duel that resulted in a 2-1 win for Maine.  The second game saw the Seawolves jump out to an early advantage and held that to the victory.  Maine moves to 18-30 on the season and is 7-13 in America East Conference play.

During the double header UMaine honored both the 1976 and 1986 baseball teams that made it to the College World Series.

Game One: Maine 2-1 Stony Brook

Maine would avenge an early run by the visiting Seawolves and score in each the second and third inning to take the lead away from their America East foe.  Logan Fullmer was once again stellar from the mound with seven strong innings of one run ball.  He also allowed just five hits and one walk, while striking out nine batters.  Nick Silva pitched a perfect two innings to earn his fifth save of the year.  Collin Ridley and Kevin Stypulkowski each had an RBI for the Black Bears in the win.

 

Game Two: Stony Brook 8-1 Maine

Stony Brook jumped out early on against Black Bear starter John Arel to the tune of seven runs in just three innings pitched.  Brett Clarke for the Seawolves shut down Maine from the hill, allowing just seven hits and two walks for one earned run.  Lou Della Fera and Collin Ridley led Maine with two hits, while the latter drove in the Black Bears’ lone run.
