Impressive pitching performances were the story of the day as Stony Brook (11-10, 4-1 AE) and Hartford (12-9, 3-2) split a doubleheader on Saturday in the first two games of a three-games series. The series will conclude on Monday at 3:30 p.m. ET due to inclement weather in the West Hartford area on Sunday. Recap the first two games:

Stony Brook (11-10, 4-1 AE) at Hartford (12-9, 3-2 AE)
Game 1: at Hartford 1, Stony Brook 0
Box Score | Highlights

  • A matchup of two of the top pitchers in the conference did not disappoint as Hartford's Sean Newcomb and Stony Brook's Frankie Vanderka were both impressive in the Hawks' 1-0 win in game one of the doubleheader.
  • Newcomb extended his season-long streak of not allowing an earned run to 39.2 innings, tossing seven frames of no-hit baseball. Alex Gouin relieved Newcomb for the final two, allowing just one hit to earn the save.
  • Vanderka went eight innings, allowing only one run on three hits.
  • The only blemish on Vanderka's day came in the bottom of the fifth inning, as Adam Touhey roped a leadoff triple into the right field corner for the Hawks. After Vanderka struck out Wilson and walked Ruch, Trey Stover hit a fly ball to right that brought in Touhey for the games only run.
  • Newcomb finished with eight strikeouts and four walks. He is the only pitcher in the country to qualify in the NCAA stats to not allow an earned run.

Game 2: Stony Brook 1 at Hartford 0
Box Score

  • Ryley MacEachern threw a complete-game shutout, allowing only three hits and striking out seven without issuing a walk to held Stony Brook even the series at one game apiece.
  • MacEachern retired 14 of the first 15 batters he faced, four by way of the K.
  • Hartford's Brian Hunter also threw a complete game, allowing only the one run on six hits.
  • The lone run in the contest came in the top of the fourth. Senior Kevin Courtney  hit a leadoff single and advanced to second on junior Cole Peragine's sac bunt. Freshman Casey Baker singled Courtney to third, and sophomore Johnny Caputo brought Courtney home with a squeeze bunt down the first base line.
