The Harvard baseball team had scored double-digit runs on four separate occasions going into the weekend of April 16-17, earning a victory each time. That came to on Saturday, April 16, when the Crimson fell 21-12 to Columbia in a shootout which kicked off a three-game sweep for the Lions. The Crimson extended their losing streak to a season-high eight games.
It wasn’t the triumphant return it may have hoped for, but for the first time in almost three years the men’s lightweight rowing team raced the 2,000 meters along the Charles River this past Saturday, fielding five boats in a competitive bout against Dartmouth and MIT.
The last time that the Harvard baseball team stepped on to O’Donnell Field to play a game of consequence was May 18, 2019 in a 3-1 win against Columbia. That changed this past Saturday, when the Crimson returned to its home stomping grounds for a resounding 17-7 win against Brown. That game kicked off a three-game weekend series against the Bears in which Harvard took the second game of the series 7-1 before falling in the matinee by a score of 7-5.
