Baseball Team Keeps On Winning; Del Rossi Holds Lions to Two Hits

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Despite the rain, the cold, and some pretty fair opposition, the amazing Crimson baseball team lengthened its winning streak to 12 games with two weight victories last week-end at Soldier's held.

The first Crimson victim was Brown, team not noted for brilliance but which always plays its best ball against Harvard. As Harvard seemed determined to play its worst baseball of the season, the Bruins almost went home happy.

However, the Crimson regained its hold touch by the fourth inning, and sent the hapless Bears back to Providence with a 6-4 defeat to breed over.

Harvard actually took the lead against brown when Mike Drummey doubled to upon the Crimson half of the first and strong flies by Terry Bartolet and Dave Morse brought him home. A1 Yarbro, Though, was greeted by three straight Brown hits in the top of the second, and all the runners eventually scored, a feat partially made possible by Morse's error cut short.

After the first three hitters in the third inning also singled off Yarbro's tempting offerings, Coach Norm Shepard made the long walk to the mound and emotioned for Dick Garibaldi to take over on the hill. It was a very smart move, since Garibaldi, a right handed fireball pitcher who usually needs warm weather to work effectively, went through the next 6 1/3 innings allowing only one safe hit. He ended the game nicely, retiring 13 consecutive batsmen.

Meanwhile, the Crimson scoring machine began to click. Drummey, who went four for four for the day, scored in the third. Then in the fourth four more runs runs came across, clinching the victory. Bobby St. Georgo began the rally with a single to right. Gavin Gilmor gave it substance with a 330 foot home run to lead center field. Diehl tried mightily but struck out, Consecutive singles by Garibaldi, Drummey, and Bartolet, however, brought in two more tallies, and a saw Bruin pitcher--Doug Nelson.

Supported by superb infield play (which setted four double plays during the pame). Nelson managed to suspend further Crimson scoring, but the deed was already done.

Saturday's game with Columbia was one of the best college contests in several years. It featured a tense pitching duel between Harvard's sophomore sensation Paul Del Rosel (6-0) and Columbia's hard luck fast ball ace Bob Koehler (2-3). Del Rossi finally won a 2-1, two hit ball game, but suspense was high until the last out.

Neither team scored during the first six innings. Then is the top of the seventh. Del Rossi issued a free pass to Tom Vasell, which led to trouble. A sacrifice, a passed ball, and Columbia's second hit of the day, a sharp single by Gerry Erienbach, brought in the run.

Gilmore rescued Del Rossi When Harvard came to bat, though, with another 400 blast over the centerfielder's head for a homer: his third in the last three games.

Koehler's second walk of the day, to Bartolet, led to his downfall in the next inning. Morse moved him to third with a single, and firstbaseman Phil Bernstein, who had left 13 men on base during the Brown game, atoned for his past sins and singled Bartolet home. Curly Combs nearly brought in another run, but his sharp grounder was dramatically fielded by the Lion's second baseman, John O'Brien.

Speaking of fine fielding, Mike Drummey and Dave Morse certainly demonstrated major league brilliance throughout the wek-ond. Both boys despite some errors, saved Crimson pitchers many times with incredible plays on what looked like sure hits.
