After SNHU falls Saturday, St. Thomas takes crown from Dowling
Facing elimination in the double-elimination Division II East Regional championship, the Penmen fell to Dowling University, 4-3, in Hooksett.
On Sunday, St. Thomas beat Dowling twice, 4-2 and 3-0, to claim the regional title.
In the winner-take-all second game, Matt Kostalos hurled a six-hitter. He fanned five.
Down 3-0 in the fifth inning, Southern New Hampshire struck back in the bottom of the inning with two runs of its own, also sparked by a lack of control by Dowling pitcher J.J. Bessell. With the bases loaded after a pair of singles and a walk, Mike Mastroberti scored when Tyler Fortanascio walked, and Alejandro Diaz then scored on a wild pitch.
