WEST HAVEN, Conn. -- Harvard snapped Yale's eight-game win streak on Friday evening behind a no-hitter from Noah Zavolas.

Zavolas (4-1) allowed two baserunners and struck out 12 in a 4-0 win against a Yale lineup that entered the night averaging seven runs a game in conference play.  The Bulldogs fell to 7-3 in Ivy play, while Harvard improved to 4-3 in conference.

The two teams will play a doubleheader tomorrow beginning at 1 p.m.

Scott Politz took the loss for the Bulldogs.  Politz tossed seven innings and allowed three earned runs with six strikeouts.

Harvard scored three runs in the second and Zavolas did the rest.  

One of Yale's best chances for a hit came in the eighth. Harry Hegeman grounded out to first baseman Patrick McColl, who made a nice stop and flipped the ball to Zavolas who was running to cover first base and dropped the transfer for an error.  

In the ninth, Tim DeGraw worked out a walk on an eight-pitch at bat with two outs.
