what would prove to be the deciding run in game two en route to leading Stony
Brook to a doubleheader sweep of UAlbany in the final America East regular

scored three more runs in the bottom of the fourth, including getting a run in
on Pat Cantwell's triple into left center. Stony Brook added a pair of runs in
the fifth and three more in the sixth, on a three-run homer by Murakami.
UAlbany got two runners on base in the top of the seventh with back-to-back
walks, and both runners scored on a home run by Josh Nethaway over the left

Brook, allowing just one hit over three innings of work. UAlbany starter Ryan
White took the loss for the Great Danes, allowing five earned runs. Brian
Gauthier fanned one in two innings, scattering four hits.

hitting an RBI single through the left side to score Kyle Crean, giving the
Great Danes an early 1-0 lead. Stony Brook scored a pair of runs in the bottom
of the third to take a one-run advantage, and added two more runs in the bottom
of the seventh on a single by Murakami that scored two runs.

the go-ahead run at the plate, reliever Jasvir Rakkar induced a fly out to end
the Great Dane threat and seal up the win for Stony Brook.
