The No. 4 Stony Brook Seawolves have advanced to the Super Regionals of the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament by defeating the No. 2 Central Florida Knights, 10-6, in a winner-take-all contest on Monday night. The Seawolves won three games in the last two days, including a 12-5 victory over Central Florida on Sunday night to set the stage for this contest.
The Knights jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the third inning, but the Seawolves used their bats in the bottom of the fourth inning for a five-run inning, highlighted by William Carmona's two-run double. Carmona went 4-for-5 with two runs scored and three RBI.
The Stony Brook offense scored five runs over the next three innings with the entire offensive unit contributing to the runs total. Travis Jankowski, a top MLB prospect, went 1-for-4 with two runs, two walks and an RBI.
Tyler Johnson picked up the win following 6.1 innings pitched and four runs allowed.
Stony Brook will face the No. 7 national seed LSU Tigers this coming weekend. The Tigers are led by No. 4 overall draft pick and Colorado native Kevin Gausman.
