Three Seahawk Stars of the Day
1 – Salve Regina starters Tommy Seaver (Rocky Hill, Conn.) and Frank Lemieux (Marshfield, Mass.) - combined for 19 strikeouts; Lemieux struck out the first four batters he faced.
2 – Salve Regina outfielder Brody Santilli (Lincoln, R.I.) - laced a pair of doubles, drove in a run and scored a run in the opener while making a highlight-style catch in left field to rob John Arens (Milton, Mass.) of an extra-base hit.
3 – Salve Regina designated hitter Tristan Dacey (Wyckoff, N.J.) - blasted a three-run homer to right field (his second of the week) as part of a six-run 3rd inning in the nightcap.
Key Stat of the Day
Salve Regina pitchers struck out 23 batters in 14 innings. Curry had only three hits in Game Two, with two of them coming in a six-run 6th inning; the Colonels benefitted from five of their seven bases on balls in the frame.
Senior outfielder Ryan Kelly (Waldwick, N.J.) led off the bottom of the 3rd of a scoreless Game Two with his third home run of the season to jump start the Seahawk offense.
- Curry outfielder John Arens (Milton, Mass.) belted just the second home run of the season for the Colonels; freshman Matt Fogarty (Millis, Mass.) has the other round-tripper for Curry.
- Salve Regina's Sean Healy (Wakefield, R.I.) and Jimmy Fitzgeral (Canton, Mass.) picked up saves in the sweep.
- Alex Perry (No. Attleboro, Mass.) had a Noah's Ark day (everything in two) - two hits, two runs batted in, two runs scored.
- Kelly swiped second and third base after a leadoff walk in the bottom of the 6th, and came home on Perry's RBI single for an insurance run in the 6-4 victory.
- After allowing a leadoff homer to Arens in the top of the 5th, Seaver struck out four Colonels in the frame including freshman Tyler Jenkins (East Bridgewater, Mass.) who reached on a wild pitch after kicking the ball into foul territory which went undetected by the umpires.
"It's good to get a sweep in conference and that was our goal today. Both games we took leads and made some mistakes to let Curry get life. We have to learn from that. Obviously the key to today was two outstanding starts from Tommy and Frank. Both guys had some really good stuff working and it was fun to call their game. Out of the bullpen Lynchy, Healy, and Fitz picked us up and made some things happen. I think the offense battled and we were able to keep the line moving, so to speak. Kelly and Militano set the table for some big innings and our middle guys did a good job driving in runs. We will take the good with the bad from the weekend and continue to work hard to be a more complete ball club." - Salve Regina head coach Eric Cirella
