Baseball Begins Ivy League Play with Wins

The Columbia baseball team began its Ivy League title defense successfully, with two wins over Harvard. In the first game, the Lions won 8-3 thanks to a complete game from pitcher Joe Scarlata (5 strikeouts). Third baseman Mike Roberts and left fielder Anthony Potter hit back-to-back homers for the Lions in the second inning, and second baseman Jon Eisen drove in three runs. 

In the second game, the Lions eked out an 8-6 win. Tied 3-3 going into the bottom of the eighth, catcher Dean Forthun doubled down the line to score centerfielder Nick Cox, and Columbia went on to score four more runs, and hold off a Crimson rally in the top of the ninth. Starter Dan Bracey went 8 innings, with six strikeouts. (Image by Columbia University Athletics)
