Saturday's NCAA regional contest between No. 2 seeded-UCF and Stony Brook certainly had a fair bit of offense. The Knights and Seawolves combined for 17 runs on 17 runs in a back-and-forth affair in Coral Gables, Fla. But in the end, UCF prevailed by a final score of 9-8 to to face Missouri State in the regional title game. The Bears eliminated host Miami (Fl.) earlier in the day, 12-2.
For the Knights, they were led by shortstop Darnell Sweeney and designated hitter Jeramy Matos, who combined for six runs on three runs.
Redshirt junior Chris Matulis was credited with the win for UCF after pitching five innings in relief, though allowing four earned runs over that span. Joe Rodgers, who came in during the eighth inning recorded the save for the Knights.
