STONY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) — Stony Brook’s baseball team set the school mark with 43 victories, sweeping a doubleheader from Maine on Saturday to close the regular season.
The Seawolves (43-11) entered the day one win behind last year’s squad, but beat the Black Bears 7-2 in the first game and rallied for nine runs over the last two innings in the second game for a 10-9 victory.
Stony Brook has won 19 of its last 20 entering the America East tournament, and finished 21-3 in regular-season conference games. Coach Matt Senk’s top-seeded Seawolves will host the conference tournament at Joe Nathan Field, which begins Wednesday.
Stony Brook is also the third team in America East history, and first since Delaware in 1997-98, to win 40 games or more in consecutive seasons.
