The Stony Brook bats would come to life, though, scoring nine unanswered runs, a gap the Knights could not overcome.
UCF had started the regional 2-0, including a 9-8 win over Stony Brook on Saturday, but fell twice to the Seawolves on Sunday and Monday, ending the club’s season. Stony Brook will move on to face LSU in their Super Regional.
