On Friday evening, Jack Carr ’20 pitched two scoreless innings for the Stony Brook University baseball team to earn his first collegiate save in a 5-4 win over Western Carolina in Cullowhee, NC.
The sophomore right-hander started the 8th inning with a lineout to the shortstop and a swinging strikeout to sit the first two batters down. A pair of singles followed along with a stolen base as both men moved into scoring position, but the former Bear rose to the occasion, inducing a fly out to left field to end the threat and hold the Seawolves’ lead at 5-4.
In the 9th, Carr again vanquished the first two batters of the inning with a strikeout and lineout to left. A walk and a single followed, but Carr gave the Seawolves the series opening win with a ground out to second. In three appearances this year, he has yet to let up a run in 4.2 innings of work.
Carr and Stony Brook are back in action tomorrow afternoon in a home match-up with Long Island University.
