Grobman Tallies Four Hits On Day For Bulldogs
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – It had been a bit of a slow start to the Ivy League season for a Dartmouth team that was picked to finish second in the preseason poll. Unfortunately for Yale, the Big Green broke out in a big way on Saturday. Dartmouth banged out 28 hits in sweeping a doubleheader from the Bulldogs, winning the first game 10-2 and the second game 11-3.
Sydney Grobman and Terra Jerpbak had strong offensive days for Yale. Grobman was 2-for-3 in the opener and added two hits and two RBI in the second game. Jerpbak had three hits and two RBI on the day.
The Big Green wasted no time getting on the board, scoring four runs in the first inning of the first game.
Dartmouth, though, scored three more times in the second inning to regain control.
Shelby Wilkison overcame six walks in the circle to earn the complete-game victory.
The Big Green again jumped in front in the second game with a two-run first inning. Yale answered with a Grobman RBI single in the bottom of the first, but Dartmouth added three runs in the second.
Kennedy's double scored Giovy Webb in the bottom of the second, and Grobman's double to the right-field gap scored Vinyard in the third to cut the Big Green lead to 5-3.
Dartmouth then seized control with a five-run fourth inning.
Mary Baumann pitched four innings of relief for Yale, allowing just one earned run.
The same two teams play a single game on Sunday. The first pitch is slated for 12:30 p.m.
