Baseball Heats Up During Break Trip

The baseball team recently returned from spring break, and as the weather improved so did its play.

The team began with a 12-1 loss to Elon. Despite the sizable margin of defeat, Cornell actually managed to score first, as three different players earned a pair of hits.

The team’s defense improved during its next game, but the offense remained ineffective as the Red continued its downward spiral with a 5-1 loss to UNCG. Part of the defensive effort can be attributed to junior Dan Gala, who held UNCG scoreless for four innings.

Things turned around for Cornell with a pair of wins over Delaware State. In the second game, junior Chris Schutt held the mound for the entire game, while classmate Dan Parant led the team offensively. Besides Parant’s double, the team also connected with the ball nine other times.

Cornell returns to action today against Penn State for a two-game home series.
