Game 1: Dartmouth 14 Brown 9
Game 2: Brown 12 Dartmouth 9

HANOVER, N.H. — Dartmouth (14-10, 11-1 Ivy) banged out 16 hits in the first game of a doubleheader and scored eight times in the sixth to rally for a 14-9 victory over Brown and extend its winning streak to 13 games on Sunday afternoon at Red Rolfe Field at Biondi Park. But the Bears (13-15-1, 8-4 Ivy) clawed back in the second game, overcoming a five-run deficit before scoring three in the ninth for a 12-9 triumph and become the first Ivy team to defeat the Big Green this year. The 13-game streak was the third longest in school history, behind a 21-game winning streak in 1970 — the year Dartmouth advanced to the College World Series — and a 16-gamer in 1997.

Trailing 9-6 in the opener, Dartmouth quickly went to work on Brown closer Matthew Kimball (1-3) as the first seven batters reached base. Freshman Joe Sclafani (Palm City, Fla.) lined a single to left and sophomore Jeff Onstott (Houston, Texas) walked to bring the tying run to the plate. The first run scored on junior Nick Santomauro’s (North Caldwell, N.J.) single through the hole on the left side of the infield. After a walk to senior Mike Pagliarulo (Winchester, Mass.), senior Ray Allen (Longwood, Fla.) tied the score with a two-run single back through the box.
