Crimson Nine Sweeps Tigers, 6-0, 7-3

Loses Second of Season to Navy on Friday

By Bill Scheft

The Harvard baseball team came through a weekend road trip in successful style, raising its record to 16-2 thanks to a 6-0, 7-3 twinbill sweep of Princeton, and no thanks to a 6-3 defeat at the hands of Navy.

Coach Loyal Park, whose bad dreams about last year's nightmarish season seem to be well behind him nowadays, said the Crimson "played one bad inning of baseball all weekend." Unfortunately, that inning was the home half of the fourth at Navy, when the Midshipmen got the four runs that proved instrumental in giving Harvard its second loss of the year.

But who wants to talk about that one inning when your team played the other 25 flawlessly? At Princeton on Saturday a capacity crowd was simultaneously entertained and humbled by two strong Harvard performances.

In the opener, Crimson southpaw Paul McOsker hooked horns with Princeton hurler Mike O'Brien for a scoreless duel that lasted nine innings. But as justice would have it, Harvard came through with six runs in the tenth to take it, 6-0

Justice, you say? Yes indeed. "McOsker pitched one of the top three or four games I've seen since I've been here. He made a mockery out of them," Park said, and the left-handed stringbean's nine strikeouts and only three hits in ten innings certainly back that statement up.

Harvard's runs in the tenth came when 1) Tommy Joyce's fly ball with bases loaded was misplayed by the center fielder to score one run, 2) Rich Trembowicz walked with the bases still loaded, and 3) Rick Pearce hit a two-run single. Trem-bowicz eventually came home on a wild pitch, while Pearce scored the sixth run on a Matt Bingham safety.

As for Princeton, afer McOsker hit the first wo batters he faced (he had four hit batsmen on the day), the Tigers apparently decided that they would wait until the second game of the doubleheader to give Harvard problems.
