NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Harvard baseball team dropped an Ivy League doubleheader at Columbia on Sunday by scores of 11-2 and 8-0.

In the opener, Harvard (3-20, 0-4 Ivy) lefty Brent Suter was knocked out of the game in the first inning as Columbia (11-11, 2-2 Ivy) struck for five runs on six hits. Neither team scored until the fourth when five walks, an error and a three-run homer put five more runs on the board for a 10-0 Lions' lead.

Columbia added a run on a fielder's choice in the fifth before Harvard got on the board in the sixth on a pair of RBI doubles from Jeff Reynolds and Marcus Way.

Reynolds was the lone Crimson player with two hits in the game.

In the second game, Stefan Olson and Harrison Slutsky limited the Crimson to four hits with Olson going seven strong innings while pitching to contact as he struck out just two.

Nick Cox was 4-for-4 with a pair of stolen bases while Jason Banos had two hits and four runs batted in with a two-run double and two-run homer.

Conner Hulse took the loss for the Crimson, giving up seven hits and four runs in 6.0 innings of work. Reynolds once again was the only Crimson player with multiple hits as he singled in his first two at bats.
