Game 1: Dartmouth 7 Columbia 0 (7 innings)
Game 2: Dartmouth 6 Columbia 5

NEW YORK — Freshman Kyle Hendricks (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.) twirled a complete-game shutout in the first game of a doubleheader and Dartmouth slammed five home runs in the two games to carry the Big Green (5-9, 4-0 Ivy) to 7-0 and 6-5 victories at Columbia (4-18, 2-2 Ivy), avenging last year’s loss to the Lions in the Ivy Championship series. Dartmouth is the only Ivy League team to emerge from the first weekend of play undefeated.

Junior Nick Santomauro (North Caldwell, N.J.), who was 6-for-8 in the two games, and senior Ray Allen (Longwood, Fla.) each cranked two long balls on the day, with the latter connecting on both of his in the opener. The other bomb for the Big Green was a three-run jack in game two off the bat of junior Brett Gardner (Bellevue, Wash.).

Hendricks (1-2) rarely got into trouble in the seven-inning contest, earning his first collegiate victory. A lead-off single in the first was quickly erased when senior catcher Jack Monahan (Overland Park, Kan.) gunned down the runner trying to steal second, and a walk and a wild pitch with two outs proved to be harmless. Hendricks retired seven straight before hitting the lead-off batter in the fourth, who also was caught stealing.
