Harvard loses, 1-0

Penn's Sean Abate, who had made all of two starts on the mound for the Quakers this year, has shut out the Crimson in Game One. My man at the scene says that Haviland looked dominant, especially with the curve, through six, and then Penn just started driving balls in the seventh, making great contact even on the first two outs... A huge win for the Penn program and new coach John Cole, to be sure. Meanwhile, Dartmouth emerged from a similar duel victorious with a 1-0 win over Columbia, and the Yale-Cornell and Brown-Princeton Rolfe-hosted doubleheaders have both been postponed due to rain.

Second game coming up. It's cold and the same rain is expected to hit the area. We'll see what happens.
