The Bulldogs return to Yale Field for the first time since April 1st with a home game against Sacred Heart on Wednesday afternoon.  First pitch is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.

The bats came alive in the third game game of the series against Harvard last Sunday in an 8-7, come-from-behind victory over the Crimson.   Yale enters the week 11-16 overall and one game out of first in the Ivy League standings with a 5-4 mark. 

Tim DeGraw had four RBI, including a two-run single to tie the game in the ninth against Harvard.  DeGraw finished up the week going 8 for 20 with and at least all five games.

Griffin Dey provided the game-winning RBI, his team leading 27th run batted in this season, in the victory on Sunday.  Dey, who leads the Ivy League in conference games walks, was named to the Ivy League Weekly Honor Roll.  

Harry Hegeman leads the team with a .357 average (10 for 28) and .471 on-base percentage in Ivy League play

Two Yale pitchers also earned a spot on the honor roll -- senior Scott Politz and first-year Ben Gibbs.  

Sacred Heart is 10-19 overall and 5-4 in the Northeast Conference. The two teams are scheduled to play again on April 24 in a game hosted by Sacred Heart.
