Words of Praise From Cornell

Here’s what Cornell sophomore pitcher Blake Hamilton had to say about the Crimson after losing to them 3-1 on Saturday.

"We still had a chance to win towards the end ... I was impressed with Harvard's hitting. When I made a mistake they hit them pretty well. I just tried to keep the ball down and mix speeds."

And as for our pitching…

"Harvard's pitchers are at the top of the line," Hamilton said. "Besides Yale, they have the best staff -- ERA wise -- in the league. We knew coming in it was going to be a tough game."

And what about division-foe Dartmouth?

"Dartmouth's pitchers threw a little bit harder, but they didn't mix their speeds as well," Hamilton said. "That's why we were able to be a little more effective at the plate."

Thanks for the scouting report Blake.
