Bulldogs Limited To Six Hits

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Princeton made the most of its opportunities in winning the first game of a three-game series with Yale at 5K Corral Field at DeWitt Family Stadium. Mackenzie Meyer hit a two-run home run in the first inning, and Allie Reynolds tossed a complete-game six-hitter as the Tigers topped the Bulldogs 5-0 on the first true spring day of the season.

Shelby Kennedy, Annie Tarte, Sydney Grobman, Francesca Casalino, Allison Skinner and Madison Sack all singled for Yale.

After Meyer's long home run to left in the first inning, Princeton tacked on a single run in the fourth inning and two in the seventh.

Yale's best scoring chance came in the sixth. Trailing 3-0, Sack and Kennedy singled and Grobman walked to load the bases with two outs. Carlin Hagmaier then hit a hard shot that appeared to be headed down the right field line. Princeton first baseman Kaylee Grant, though, made a diving stop to smother it, and then reached out to touch first, just ahead of Hagmaier.

Reynolds struck out two and issued only one walk in an efficient performance in the circle.

The same two teams play a doubleheader on Saturday. The first pitch of the first game is slated for 12:30 p.m.
