Seawolves pitcher Frankie Vanderka led his team to Sunday night's 7-2 victory in Game three.

"We love the whole Cinderella story, you know. Everyone underestimating us and then showing what a Northeast team can do? We just played how we played all year. We didn't change a thing," Vanderka said

Stony Brook is the first team from New York to make it to the College World Series in Omaha since 1980.

The series -- which includes a field of eight teams -- starts on Friday.
