Sloan singled leading off the bottom of the first inning. The fans, though, did have to wait quite awhile for the first game to be decided.

  • Trip To Columbia & Penn Starts Ivy League Play
    April 01, 2010
    The 2010 Yale softball season has already had its share of eventful moments. It began a day later than expected because of torrential rain in normally sunny Florida. Kayla Kuretich had her bid for a no-hitter ended by ground ball single in the seventh inning against Marist, and most recently, Yale saw a 9-3 lead go for naught when the game had to be stopped after four innings because of darkness. All of that, though, gets forgotten now as Yale prepares for its Ivy League openers this weekend. The Bulldogs play doubleheaders at Columbia on Friday and at Penn on Saturday. The action on both days begins at 2 p.m.

When yesterday’s heavy rain pushed the starting time for Wednesday’s game with Fairfield back to 4 p.m., the plan was to play only one game. But when the first game ended in a relatively brisk 1:53, the coaches decided to try and squeeze in a second game. That’s when Yale’s bats came alive. The Bulldogs banged out 16 hits in four innings and had a 9-3 lead. Unfortunately, all that offense took time and the game had to be called before it became official as darkness was descending on Alumni Field. As a result, none of the statistics count. Fairfield won the first game 3-1.
