The Seawolves split their two games on Sunday, defeating Bucknell 4-3 in eight innings, but fell to Longwood 3-0. The Seawolves now stand at 4-6 on the season.

Despite beating Bucknell by 11 runs on Saturday, the Seawolves needed extra innings to knock off the Bison. Stony Brook scored the first three runs of the game, but Bucknell was able to claw their way back.

Sophomore Bria Green had an RBI single in the first inning, before junior Jessica Combs hit a two-run single in the third inning.

Freshman Jane Sallen gave up just one run through the first six innings, before giving up a two-run home run to tie the game.

Bucknell started off the eighth inning with a runner on second base, before a groundout moved her to third. The Bison then attempted to squeeze home the run, but third-baseman Gina Bianculli was able to field the bunt and get the runner out at home.

Stony Brook squeezed their runner to third base to start off the bottom half of the eighth inning, before junior Jessica Zeilman singled to right to end the game.

The Seawolves were unable to hit Longwood pitcher Brooke Short, who threw a complete-game one-hitter and allowed just four total baserunners. Short had a no-hitter throw 6.2 innings until Zeilman singled to right field. Freshman Alexandra Pisciotta then drew a walk to bring the tying run to the plate, but Short got the pinch-hitter, redshirt sophomore Nicole Hoyle, to end the game.

Short also had a big day with the bat, as she hit a solo home run in the fourth inning. Longwood scored two more runs later in the game to go up three.
