What to Know:
- Harvard is coming off a series victory against Columbia, thanks to a walk-off double by junior Jake Suddleson in the 14th inning Sunday. With the victory, the Crimson climbed to the top spot in the Ivy League with just one regular-season series remaining.
- Suddleson picked up Ivy League Player-of-the-Week honors with 10 hits and nine RBIs in four games last week. The junior also surpassed the program record for RBIs in a single-season with 52, snapping a record previously held by Andrew Huling from the 1999 campaign.
- First-year Harrison Stovern also earned Rookie-of-the-Week accolades in the conference, picking up the save in game two of the series against Columbia. Stovern, the next day, pitched 2.2 innings without allowing a run.
- Sophomore Enzo Stefanoni was a crucial bullpen arm this past weekend, pitching three-scoreless innings in the second game of the series, then pitching two additional shutout innings in the series finale.
- Senior Patrick McColl moved up to second in the nation with his .430 batting average and fourth in the country with an .810 slugging percentage. Suddleson also ranks fifth in the country with 1.53 runs batted per game.
Harvard clinches a berth in the Ivy League Championship Series with a win or a Yale loss this upcoming weekend. The team will look to do so on the road against the Brown Bears (11-24, 8-10 Ivy), beginning with a doubleheader on Saturday, with first pitch at 11:30 a.m. All three games will be broadcast on ESPN+.
