Stony Brook, N.Y.— The Retrievers fell in both games of the double header with Stony Brook on Saturday. The losses drop UMBC to 14-12, 4-4 AE on the year.

Game One:

The Retrievers got down early, as the Seawolves stepped on the gas from the get-go. Stony Brook put up a two spot in the second inning, thanks to a Casey Baker home run.

Stony Brook got another run in the seventh off a fielding error, and got the final five runs in the eighth to seal the deal.

UMBC would add to their total with a scarifice fly by Naumann in the seventh to win 5-1.
