Yale shocks South Carolina

For the second time in a week, an Ivy League program defeated an SEC team this time the Yale Bulldogs went down to Columbia SC and defeated the number 4 ranked South Carolina Gamecocks. The Bulldogs used four pitchers in the game while allowing South Carolina to only five hits. Yale starter Stefan Schropp pitched the first five innings of the game allowing only three hits and one run. He was followed by Chris Walsh who struggled through 1.1 innings while giving up two hits and two runs. The final 2.2 innings were pitched by Vinny Lally (1.2 innings) and Steve Gilman (1 inning) who did not allow a baserunner. The Yale offense continues to revolve around Ryan Lavarnway who went 1-4 hitting his fifth homer on the year. He was named to several Watch Lists before the season including ours which can be read here. Trygg Larson-Danforth had the strogest game as he went 3-5 with 2 RBI.

    Brown beat Florida this past weekend too.

    Yale looked awful last year when I had a chance to see them. Lavarnaway is a solid player.
