Memo to the Gehrig Division: Bunt Against Princeton

Harvard wins 13-8 in a sloppy, sloppy game. I came in midway through, which means I got to see a Princeton 4-error inning. Fun.

Salsgiver threw the ninth and looked good, altough didn't have quite the velocity I remembered from last seeing him pitch a couple years ago.

Klimkiewicz hit a shot over the right field trees to tie it at 5 all, but the Crimson's (first) big inning after that started in a fashion reminiscent of earlier Walsh teams: a leadoff walk, a bunt single up the first-base line by Matt Vance, an even better bunt single up the third base line by Morgan Brown, a walk to Hermann (who laid off a tantalizing 3-2 pitch that wound up outside) to score a run, and a line drive to left by Lance Salsgiver that brought home two.

Curtis Miller, along with Mike Dukovich the only regular lefty arms available out of the bullpen, was used in both games.

Dartmouth swept today to stay a game back. Brown swept Columbia and is two back in the loss column with two extra to play due to rainouts.

Sorry about the sparseness this weekend, folks. Anyone know what cures strep throat?
