PRINCETON, N.J. -- Three games, 46 runs.

Cornell's offense woke up in a big way, averaging over 15 runs a game in a three-game set at James Madison, as the Big Red (7-3) took two of three. In the rubber match, trailing 8-4 in the top of the ninth with two outs, Cornell loaded the bases and junior Ryan Karl promptly unloaded them, hitting a grand-slam to tie the game at eight. The Big Red then plated six in the 10th inning to win, 14-8.

Last year's Ivy League Championship Series winner, Columbia (5-7), dropped three of four at UTSA, including a pair of one-run losses. Princeton defeated UNCG, 11-1 in the final game of their three-game set to avoid the sweep. The winning team scored 11 runs in each of the three contests. Penn (2-9) gave first-year head coach John Yurkow his first two career victories, sweeping Delaware State 4-1 and 17-9, before dropping three hard-fought games at Richmond, 6-5, 5-3 and 1-0.

Meanwhile, there is a new leader in the Rolfe Division, as Yale used a 4-2 week, including two of three from Stetson, to vault to the top of the standings with a 5-5 mark. Harvard (2-8) dropped the first two of its series against Michigan State, while Brown (1-5) picked up its first victory of the season, 6-3 over George Mason. Dartmouth (1-5) battled No. 27 TCU but ultimately came up short, 4-1, 5-1 and 8-0.

The upcoming week is a busy one for the Ancient Eight, with all eight teams in action, highlighted by Princeton taking on UNC and Duke on The Ivy League® Digital Network, Columbia's trip to play Texas A&M and Texas and Dartmouth's three-game set at Kansas that will be streamed on ESPN3.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Cornell junior Ryan Karl (Towaco, N.J.), in his first year with the Big Red after transferring from Louisville, was a big part of his team's offensive explosion in its three-game set at James Madison last week. Karl batted .533 (8-for-15) with two doubles, four home run and 11 RBI in three games, slugging 1.467 and walking twice for an on-base percentage of .588. He also scored eight runs. His big blast was a grand slam in the rubber match with JMU that tied the game in the top of the ninth, as Cornell would go on to win in extra innings.

Karl gives the Big Red Player of the Week in back-to-back weeks for the first time since 2001, when Erik Rico took home the honor on April 16 and 23.

Karl's Weekly Stats
3 GP, .533 AVG. (8-for-15), 1.467 Slugging %, .588 OBP, 8 Runs, 2 2B, 4 HR, 11 RBI, 2 BB

PITCHER OF THE WEEK
Columbia sophomore righthander Kevin Roy (Houston) limited a UTSA team that had racked up 34 hits in its previous three games to just three over 7.2 innings of work in a 4-2 Lions victory. Roy gave up just two runs, one earned, for an ERA of 1.17. He walked one and struck out two en route to his first win of the season.

Roy earns his first career Ivy League weekly award. Columbia has received Pitcher of the Week two of the first three weeks of 2014, as senior David Speer was the recipient on March 4.  

Roy's Weekly Stats
1 APP, 1 GS, 7.2 IP, 3 Hits, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 1.17 ERA, 1-0 at UTSA

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Three weeks, three Rookie of the Week awards. Princeton freshman outfielder Paul Tupper (Milford, Conn.) made it three-for-three, joining Nick Hernandez (March 4) and Danny Baer (March 11) as Tigers to be named Rookie of the Week in 2014. Since the Ivy League began naming a Rookie of the Week in 1993, it's the first time that one team earned three-straight honors to start a season.

Tupper batted .571 (8-fo4-14) in three games at UNCG with one double, three runs and four RBI. He slugged .643 and walked once for an on-base percentage of .562.

Tupper's Weekly Stats
