The Stony Brook Seawolves upset the Central Florida Knights on Monday night, winning 10-6 to advance to the Super Regional round of the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament where they will face the LSU Tigers in a best-of-3 series. The Seawolves fell behind 3-0 after two innings, but came back with a five-run fourth to smother the Knights.
William Carmona went 4-for-5 from the plate, batting in three RBIs and scoring two himself. He capped the Seawolves' scoring with a solo shot home run off Ray Hanson in the seventh inning.
Tyler Johnson earned the win after striking out five while giving up eight hits and three walks for four earned runs in 6 1/3 innings of work. Knights starter Brian Adkins gave up four runs in just 3 1/3 innings to earn the loss. He gave up four hits and walked five while picking up just one strikeout.
The Seawolves totaled 30 runs against the Knights in three games during the Regionals round. The sledding gets tougher against a Tigers squad that went 46-16 during the season.
