HANOVER, N.H. – The Harvard baseball team (20-10, 10-5 Ivy) fell to Dartmouth (12-21, 6-9 Ivy), 15-7, Monday afternoon in the final game of the series at Biondi Park.

The Big Green got out to the early advantage, scoring seven runs over the first two innings. The Crimson began its scoring in the third inning when junior Jake Suddleson hit a two-run home run to right field. 

Dartmouth continued to score, adding seven more runs until Harvard answered with four runs in the seventh inning. The inning began with senior Ben Skinner's single to left field, which scored first-year Logan Bravo. After a pass ball that scored senior Trent Bryan, classmate Patrick McColl cleared the bases with a two-out single down the right field line, scoring Skinner and senior Devan Peterson.
