Even nine lives would not have helped Holy Cross stop Harvard's bats yesterday.
Nine different Crimson batters helped finish off the Crusaders one hit at a time in a convincing 12-6 victory that extended the Crimson's winning streak to five games.
"We've had production from a lot of players all year," sophomore catcher Brian Lentz said. "We just hadn't been doing it at the same time. Everyone's coming together now, moving runners around the bases and improving our run productivity."
Harvard (13-12, 7-1 Ivy) wasted no time, jumping out to 4-0 lead in the top of the second before adding four more in the fifth to down the Crusaders (10-13, 5-2 Patriot).
With two away in the fifth and the Crimson leading, 5-4, Lentz doubled to score sophomore second baseman Faiz Shakir and start the Crimson rout.
Sophomore third baseman Nick Carter and tri-captain Erik Binkowski followed, adding a pair of two-out doubles to give Harvard a commanding 9-4 lead.
With a pair of hits and an RBI against the Crusaders, Carter extended his hitting streak to six games.
The Harvard Coop Athlete of the Week is 7-for-12 in his last three games, and leads the team in RBI (20) and homeruns (4).
