CAMBRIDGE, Mass. –
Fresh off its fifth Beanpot championship in program history, the Harvard baseball team will continue league action this weekend when it travels to face the reigning Ivy League champion Yale for a three-game series. The Crimson will play a single game on Friday, April 13 at 5 p.m. before playing the regularly scheduled doubleheader on Saturday, now set for a 1 p.m. first pitch. Live stats and radio broadcast will be available for all three games. 

Top of the First

  • On Wednesday night, the Harvard baseball team won the 2018 Beanpot championship with an 8-6 defeat of Northeastern at Friedman Diamond in Brookline.
  • Kevin Stone earned the win, putting in five innings worth of work for his team-leading third win of the season.
  • Buddy Mrowka ripped a three-run triple in the third that put Harvard up 7-6.
  • Six different players have recorded double-digit RBI this season.
  • Ben Skinner continues to lead the team with a .340 batting average. 

Scouting Harvard
In the last few weeks, Harvard has emerged as one of the top competitors in New England, beating out regional rivals Holy Cross, Boston College and Northeastern. The Crimson has won four of its last five, and will enter the Yale series confident after winning the Beanpot championship prior to the series. 

Ben Skinner and Jake Allen lead the team with + .300 batting averages while Patrick McColl maintains the top spot with 28 RBI. Devan Peterson and Buddy Mrowka nearly doubled their respective RBI totals after they each posted three in the Beanpot championship game. 

Scouting Yale
The Bulldogs are set to host Harvard boasting a 7-2 conference record and 5-1 home record. Yale front loaded its schedule with regional powers like Virginia and Duke to better prepare for another run at the Ivy League title. Following this weekend, Yale will be more than halfway through its Ivy schedule, having only series with Dartmouth, Princeton and Penn remaining. The Bulldogs are also hot off a 5-2 win against Sacred Heart heading into this weekend. 

Yale has four batters averaging over .300, led by Harry Hegeman at .346. Junior infielder Simon Whiteman has posted a team high 21 RBI and Griffen Day tops the roster with nine extra base hits. From the pitching mound, Kumar Nambiar is one strikeout shy of Ivy League leader Simon Rosenblum-Larson with 45 and 46 strikeouts respectively. 

Ivy League Network
The Ivy League Network returns for a fifth season as the home for all live streaming and on-demand video content for each of the conference's eight institutions. Broadcast in full HD and featuring a live score bug and play-by-play and color commentary, the Ivy League Network provides fans with unprecedented access to the Ancient Eight. 

Multiple subscription options are available to fans, including school-specific and league-wide passes. To learn more about the Ivy League Network or to sign-up today, click here, or download the Ivy League Network app! 

What's Next?
Harvard will make a quick turnaround heading to Princeton on Tuesday April 17 and Wednesday, April 18 to make up the series that was postponed in late March.
