Game 1: Cornell 2 Dartmouth 0
Game 2: Dartmouth 16 Cornell 1

ITHACA, N.Y. — Dartmouth converted 15 hits, eight walks and six hit batsmen into a season-high 16 runs in the nightcap of a doubleheader at Cornell on Saturday afternoon at Hoy Field, defeating the Big Red, 16-1. The offense was a stark contrast to the first game in which Cornell’s Corey Pappel tossed a three-hit shutout to defeat the Big Green in a crisply played 2-0 game in the Ivy League opener for both teams. Dartmouth is now 7-9 on the season and 1-1 in the league, while Cornell moved to 5-8 on the season and 1-1 in conference play.

The Big Green victory was the 383rd for head coach Bob Whalen, tying him with Jeff Tesreau (1919-46) for the most victories as the Dartmouth head coach.

PRINCETON, N.J. – A pair of close contests saw the Harvard baseball nine split an Ivy League double header at Princeton on Saturday. Princeton rallied for a 4-3 win in 12 innings in the opening game before Harvard answered with a 4-2 victory in the nightcap.

Game 1: Columbia 5 Yale 3 ( 8 innings)
Game 2: Columbia 5 Yale 4

NEW YORK — Columbia’s doubleheader sweep of Yale on Saturday at Robertson Field had a little bit of everything for the loads of fans in attendance on a beautiful spring day in New York City.  It had strong pitching, missed chances, late-inning heroics and 17 innings of gripping baseball as the Ivy League schedule began. 

In the end, Columbia starters Pat Lowery and Tim Giel had strong outings on the hill and there was outstanding relief work by Geoff Whitaker and Derek Squires in each end of the twinbill.  The strong pitching and timely hitting lifted Columbia to a 5-3 win on a walkoff two-run homer by Alexander Aurrichio in the opener and a 5-4 triumph in the nightcap to complete the sweep.
