Stan Posluzny went 2-2, driving in two runs and scoring another, while sparkplug Grant Psomas reached base on two walks and scored both times. WVU worked Stony Brook pitching for nine walks in the game, which directly contributed to several WVU scores. Kurtis Clinton was also 2-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI.
In game two, the Mountaineer managed just seven hits, and also recorded three errors to assist Stony Brook to a 9-2 win. West Virginia has struggled in the field early this season, and defense was again a problem for them in this game.
Stony Brook scored four runs in the third inning, and added a pair of tallies in both the fifth and sixth to turn the game into a blowout. Tim Edmeads had a solo home run in the thrid inning to give WVU a short-lived 1-1 tie. Psomas and David Carpenter each has two hits for West Virginia, which left eight runners on base.
The third game of the series is set for Hawley Field on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
