Print More


Game three of the baseball team’s series with Princeton this weekend was a marathon, 14 inning affair. Yet the Red was able to come away with the win, guaranteeing an overall victory in its final Ivy League series of the season, after taking the opening doubleheader Friday.

Coming off of a sweep by Columbia the weekend before in which the Red was shutout in three of four games, the bats finally came back to life against conference opponent Princeton. The Red pounced on the Tigers from the start, putting four runs on the board in the first inning of game one. Senior infielder Ryan Plantier drove in the first run and junior designated hitter Ryan Karl blasted a three-run home run to give the home team a comfortable cushion.
