On Saturday afternoon, Jack Carr ’20 made his collegiate pitching debut for Stony Brook University in their match-up vs. the University of South Florida in Tampa.
The sophomore, now fully recovered from an injury that derailed his senior season at the Brook, was impressive in 1.2 innings of work that proved to be a bright spot in the Seawolves’ 3-9 loss. He came on in relief to start the bottom of the 5th and immediately got into some trouble with a single and a hit by pitch to put two men on with nobody out. He bounced back by striking out the next batter before surrendering another single to load the bases. He sat the next batter down looking before inducing a fly out to center to escape the inning unscathed. In the 6th, Carr sandwiched a pop up and a fly out around a single before being lifted for teammate John Kiss.
The Seawolves are back in action this afternoon in a home opener against Sacred Heart.
