It was a good run for the Stony Brook baseball team in 2018 America East Conference Championship, but the Seawolves’ season came to a close on Saturday with a 9-4 championship game loss to top-seeded Hartford at Mahaney Diamond.

The fourth-seeded Seawolves’ (32-25, 12-12 AE) did win three games during the tournament and came out of the losers bracket to reach Saturday’s championship.

Sophomore 1B Chris Hamilton (Schenectady, N.Y.), sophomore RF Michael Wilson (Colonia, N.J.) and sophomore RHP Greg Marino (Lake Grove, N.Y.) each earned a spot on the all-tournament team.

Hartford broke the game open with a five-run seventh inning. They scored the runs of five hits and gave them a 7-0 lead.

“Getting to play for a championship is a great accomplishment and it is not easy to win a championship. I’m extremely proud of how we competed during the entire tournament and even though things didn’t go our way today, we proved that we are and can be a championship caliber team and program,” said Head Coach Matt Senk.
