RALEIGH - After leading the MEAC in home runs last season, North Carolina &T catcher Sabrina Edmonds hit her first home run of 2013, but Stony Brook was still able to claim a narrow 8-7 win over the Aggies during the second day of the Wolfpack Challenge at Dail Stadium.

The Aggies lost their second game of the day, 20-0, to host N.C. State.

Edmonds went 3-for-4 with two RBI in the first game, while shortstop Alejandra Barcenas had a 2-for-3 day with three RBI, including a double.

The Aggies trailed by four going into the visitor's seventh. A seventh-inning Aggies rally rallied started with a one-out walk to pinch-hitter Raven Smith, who was batting for Lexi Dominguez. Edmonds followed with a two-run homer to pull the Aggies to within two. Tiffany Macklin put the tying run on first after working 3-2 count into a single down the left field line. Haley Snyder walked, forcing the Seawolves to turn to relief pitcher Christine Lucido.

Detavia Keenan greeted Lucido with a single to load the bases. Barcenas drove in her third run of the day with a single that scored Smith, but Keenan was thrown out trying to go to second, ending the game with Aggies down one with two runners stranded.

A&T entered the top of the sixth tied at 3. Keenan started a two-out rally with an infield single. Stony Brook starter Allison Cukrov then battled Barcenas to a 3-2 count before walking the freshman out of Pico Rivera, Calif., to put runners at first and second. Cukrov's two-base throwing error on a Zebresha Blakeney  groundball allowed Keenan to score to give the Aggies a 4-3 advantage.

Two home runs in the bottom half of the inning helped the Seawolves recapture the momentum. Bria Green opened the sixth with a solo homer off of A&T starter Ashira Dobison to tie the game at 4. Three batters later, Gina Bianculli hit a three-run home run to left field. A two-out error allowed the Seawolves to keep the inning going. It also led to the Seawolves loading the bases and a pitching change. Shelby Snyder entered the game in relief of Dobison. Snyder walked in a run to give the Seawloves a five-run sixth and an 8-4 lead.

The Aggies dropped to 1-6 with the loss to the Wolfpack. The Aggies close out the challenge Sunday morning with a game against Lafayette at 11:15.
