What Can Brown Do For You?

Hit game winning singles. Harvard has won the first game, 2-1, in 10 innings. Morgan Brown hit a bases loaded single off sophomore reliever Kyle Zeis to score Lance Salsgiver, silence the loud Dartmouth contingent and give the Crimson a huge win. Shawn Haviland went all ten in his greatest pitching performance yet.

This was the one the Crimson absolutely had to have, with Faiola coming up later and the games tomorrow on the road. It featured Tom Stack-Babich's first Ivy start in a looong while (he had a few rough at bats but a big hit in the ninth) and Josh Klimkiewicz's return (he somehow got thrown out at first on an early single but had a diving catch in the ninth when two outs and men on that may have saved the game).

Harvard is now one win away from postseason play. They'll have three shots now. WHRB is indeed working: Listen to it here.
