April 30, 2004
STONY BROOK, NY - Angela Andrews and Sarah Hoffman both tossed complete game shutouts and Kristen Brust hit a walk-off home run in the nightcap-one of her three home runs on the night-to lead Stony Brook to a double header sweep of Sacred Heart on Thursday afternoon at University Field. The Seawolves, who won Game 1 3-0 in eight innings and Game 2 3-0, have now won five of their last six games to improve to 25-27 on the season.
Andrews (16-17) tossed a two-hitter while striking out six in the opener to post her sixth shutout of the season and second straight, while Hoffman (9-9) allowed four hits while striking out three in the second game. Brust, who entered the contest batting just .231 in SB's last 10 games, smacked three home runs on the afternoon to account for all of Stony Brook's runs.
In Game 1, both teams struggled at the plate, but Stony Brook broke through in the bottom of the eighth inning. Marissa Servello drew a one out walk and moved to second when Jane Stein reached on an error. Brust followed with with a three-run shot to right field to give SB the victory.
