The Crimson split Saturday’s doubleheader with Brown before sweeping Sunday’s two games to improve to 16-20 on the season and 5-11 in conference play. The Bears (12-21, 5-11 Ivy League) have now lost 10 of their last 13 games and are tied with Harvard and Princeton for the worst conference record in the conference.
Rain suspended the Harvard baseball team's Beanpot championship matchup with Boston College. When play is resumed, the Crimson will be trailing the Eagles 3-2 in the bottom of the fifth inning.
In the excitement leading up to next Wednesday’s Beanpot Championship against Boston College, set to be played in Fenway Park, breezing through the remainder of the week might very well be a temptation for the Harvard baseball team. That is, of course, if there wasn’t Yale to deal with first.
For 10 former Crimson baseball players, life after Harvard has led to the same place—professional baseball. As the alumni take to diamonds around the globe, they are not only bolstering the Crimson name but also following dreams that, for some, date back to early childhood.
Despite nearly matching their opponent in hits, nine to 10, respectively, Harvard could not translate their success at the plate into runs. A dominant fourth inning, was neutralized by a strong performance from Boston College in the final four innings, the Eagles scoring six throughout and the Crimson one.
Despite a fourth inning surge, the baseball team failed to hold onto their lead as Boston College dominated the latter innings to win 8-5.
This weekend was a chance for the Harvard baseball team to recover from last weekend’s 0-4 Ivy-opening showing and make a definitive statement on its home turf. Despite the team successfully defending O’Donnell Field against Massachusetts last Wednesday, this weekend’s series against Ivy League rivals Cornell and Princeton saw the Crimson drop three of four in Cambridge and remain bound to the cellar of the conference standings with a 1-7 Ivy record.
A five-run third inning propelled Harvard to a 7-3 win over UMass on a brisk home opener that doubled as a Beanpot semifinal. With the win, the Crimson earned itself a date with Boston College in the Beanpot championship, which will be played on April 19 at Fenway Park.
