The Pride got on the board first, scoring a run in the top of the first as Dylan Nasiatka drew a leadoff walk and went to third on a Matt Reistetter single. Poma followed with a single up the middle to score Nasiatka and give the Pride the 1-0 lead.
The lead was shirt-lived as Miami (31-15) scored five times in the bottom of the first inning. Zeke DeVoss led off with a triple and scored on Chantz Mack's double. A bunt single put runners on the corners and Mack came in on a fielder's choice ground out for a 2-1 Hurricane lead. After a walk and another fielder's choice, Carey singled to drive home the third run. Stephen Perez then tripled to drive in two more runs and make it 5-1.
Hofstra (11-29) cut it to 5-3 in the third as Nasiatka and Reistetter both singled and Poma delivered a two-run double. But the Pride offense was held in check the rest of the way as Eric Whaley, Travis Miller, Javi Salas and Sam Robinson combined on the six-hitter. Whaley (7-3) went six innings and allowed five hits and three earned runs. Miller and Salas each threw an inning of hitless relief and Robinson allowed one hit in the ninth.
The Hurricanes would add two runs in the fifth on Carey's first home run of the season, and single runs in the sixth and seventh to cap the scoring.
Hofstra starter Jared Rogers (0-4) went five innings and allowed seven runs on nine hits. Everett Keller , Andrew Barbarino and Stephan Kungl each threw one inning of relief. Keller allowed two hits and two runs, while Barbarino allowed one walk (intentional) in his inning and Kungl gave up one hit.
Nasiatka (one-for-three, two runs), Reistetter (two-for-four, one run) and Poma, the top three hitters in the lineup, had five of Hofstra's six hits on the evening with Joe Perez adding a ninth inning single.
The series concludes Sunday afternoon at Noon. David D'Errico will start for the Pride.
Notes: The multi-hit game was Poma's 20th of the season and this was his fourth three-RBI performance...Jared Hammer
went 0-for-three with a sacrifice bunt, snapping his career-best 11-game hitting streak.
