Ivy League Baseball Statistics in pdf format

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Last week’s Ivy League baseball action opened with a two-game set between Penn and Duke, and closed with a three-game series between Columbia and No. 16 Arizona. The Lions and Quakers acquitted themselves well, giving Cornell notice that a return trip to the top of the Lou Gehrig Division will be anything but easy.

Penn (4-5) went 3-2 on the week, including a split at Duke. The Quakers won the first game, 6-0, before falling in the second, 8-1. Penn then took two of three at Winthrop, scoring 15 runs in the process.

Columbia (1-6), meanwhile, took its talents to Tucson, Ariz., to face the 16th-ranked and defending champion Arizona Wildcats. In the first game, the Lions took a 3-0 lead with two runs in the seventh, but were unable to hold on, as Arizona scored three in the eighth and walked off with an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth to win, 4-3. Columbia was far from demoralized, however, as it came back from a 4-1 deficit in the next contest with two in the sixth and five in the seventh en route to an 8-4 victory, its first of the season, and its first-ever against a defending national champion. Although Arizona won the rubber game, 7-5, Columbia came away with a shot of confidence.

Cornell (4-4), the defending Lou Gehrig Division and the Ivy League Champion, dropped three of four at George Washington, with each game decided by two or fewer runs. The Big Red lost the first three contests, 4-3, 5-3 and 1-0, before bouncing back to win the finale, 7-5.

Brown (1-6), Harvard (1-6) and Yale (0-3) each suffered three defeats last week, as the Bears were swept at Auburn, the Crimson lost to Ohio State, Coastal Carolina and Ball State and the Bulldogs opened their season with a three-game sweep at the hands of Army in Tampa, Fla.  

Penn sophomore catcher Austin Bossart (O’Fallon, Ill.) was a key part of his team’s 3-2 week, batting .350 (7-for-20) with four runs, three doubles and one triple. He recorded at least one hit and one run in each of the Quakers’ final four games of the week, including a pair of multi-hit games. He finished a home run shy of the cycle in an 8-1 loss at Duke, going 3-for-3 with a run, a double and a triple. He then batted 2-for-5 with a double, a run and a stolen base in a 7-0 win at Winthrop. For the week, Bossart swiped three bags.

Bossart earns his first Ivy League Player of the Week award after receiving Honor Roll status twice as a freshman.

Columbia junior reliever Joey Donino (Avon, Conn.) helped his team to its first win of the season, giving up just one hit and no runs over two innings of work in the Lions’ 8-4 win over No. 16 Arizona. Donino came on in the sixth after the Wildcats had taken a 4-1 lead with four in the fifth, and held the defending national champions down while his teammates rallied with two runs in the sixth and five in the seventh en route to the win. Donino also came out of the pen with two on and nobody out in the eighth inning of the rubber match with Arizona, getting two outs with one strikeout to help his team get out of the inning.

Donino is the first Columbia reliever to be named Pitcher of the Week since Chris Kotes, who was both a reliever and a starter for the Lions, received the award on March 26, 1990.

Donino’s Weekly Statistics
2 APP, 2.2 IP, 1 Hit, 1 BB, 2 K, 0.00 ERA, 1-0

Penn sophomore Dan Gautieri (Roseland, N.J.) did not give anyone in the Quakers bullpen a chance to enter the game he started, scattering eight hits around nine innings of work in a 7-0 win over Winthrop. It marked the first career complete game for Donino, who never let a runner get past second base while holding the Eagles hitless in five at bats with runners in scoring position. With the win, he improved to 2-0 on the year and saw his ERA fall to 1.23.

Gautieri takes home his first career Ivy League weekly award after earning Honor Roll once as a freshman.

Penn pitcher Pat Bet (Whitehall, Pa.) is not your ordinary rookie, as the junior is seeing his first career collegiate action. After coming out of the pen for his first appearance in a college baseball game at William & Mary on March 1, Bet made his first career start against Duke. He was not fazed by the situation, limiting the Blue Devils to two hits and no runs over six innings of work while striking out two.

Bet set down 10-consecutive Duke batters at one point and left the game with a 3-0 lead en route to his first career victory.
