Tim DeGraw scored two runs to add to his team lead for Yale in a 10-2 loss at No. 21 Duke on Wednesday evening in Durham, N.C.

Alex Stiegler singled home DeGraw in the sixth to put the Bulldogs on the board and Simon Whiteman scored DeGraw on an RBI groundout in the eighth. 

 

Whiteman now leads the team with 12 RBI, while DeGraw has a team-best eight runs scored.  DeGraw also notched his first stolen base of the season to set up Yale's first run of the game.  

 

Griffin Dey had two hits for his third multi-hit game of the season.  DeGraw, Harry Hegeman and Brian Ronai also had hits for the Bulldogs, who fell to 2-11 on the season.

 

Tyler Sapsford (0-2) started and went the first three innings.  He allowed three runs, five hits and walked five. 

 

Duke (14-3) scored two in the first, one in the fourth and three in fifth before Yale got on the board in the sixth.  

 

The Bulldogs return to action this weekend in Richmond, Va., to compete in the Spider Invitational.  Yale will face host Monmouth on Friday, host Richmond on Saturday and Lehigh on Sunday.
