Bulldogs Sit At 3-3 After Two Ivy Weekends
Some late-game heroics earned Yale an important doubleheader split at Princeton. The Bulldogs scored four runs in the seventh inning to erase a 1-0 deficit en route to a 4-1 victory over the Tigers at Class of 1895 Field.
Princeton won the first game 2-0.
Terra Jerpbak and Phylicia Wilkov started the rally in the seventh with back-to-back singles. After a Carlin Hagmaier sacrifice bunt, Maya Seifert's infield single plated Jerpbak to tie the score. Olivia Sardoff followed with an RBI single to put Yale in front. Seifert later scored on a wild pitch, and Olivia Vinyard capped the big inning with an RBI single.
Jerpbak was outstanding in the circle. She tossed all seven innings, struck out seven and yielded just the one earned run.
Vinyard finished 3-for-4, while Jerpbak and Wilkov each added a pair of hits. Annie Tarte also singled for the Bulldogs.
In the first game, the Bulldogs were limited to three hits. Princeton scored once in the first inning and once again in the second.
Nic Conway was the hard-luck loser in the circle. She allowed only five hits and two earned runs in six innings.
After two weekends, Yale sits at 3-3 in league play.
The Bulldogs are home on Wednesday for a non-Ivy doubleheader vs. Central Connecticut before traveling to Cornell next weekend.
