Box Score: Game One
Box Score: Game Two

Led by pitcher Michael Fagan’s stellar outing, the Princeton baseball team opened its four-game series at Navy with a 1-0 victory. The Tigers were unable to maintain their late edge over the Midshipmen in game two and fell 9-4 to split Saturday’s doubleheader.

Princeton and Navy will conclude the series with a twinbill Sunday beginning at 12 noon. Free live video streaming will be available for the games via Navysports.com.

Game One

Only four appearances into the year and senior Fagan continues to establish new personal bests, as he earned his first career shutout and complete game win Saturday. The lefty fanned eight in his one-hit two-walk seven inning outing.

Behind a cruising Fagan, the offense was able to muster up run support in the third. With runners on first and second, Paul Tupper’s RBI single to right center sent home the game-winning run.

Princeton tallied two more of its six hits over the final four innings, but would never see a base runner advance past first. Navy’s lone hit came in the bottom of the first.

Sophomore infielder Billy Arendt led the Tigers at the plate, going a perfect 3-for-3.

Game Two

Despite both sides recording 10 hits and an error apiece, a late six-run push by Navy down the stretch was too much to overcome for the Tigers.

Starter Cameron Mingo tossed three scoreless innings, before Navy broke things up with a 1-0 lead in the fourth.

Danny Hoy, who went 2-for-4, put Princeton on top briefly with a two-RBI single to center field in the fifth, but the Mids knotted the score in the bottom half of the frame.

Brett Geren reestablished the Tigers’ advantage, 4-3, with a two-RBI double to left field.

He finished going 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run.

Hitless seventh and eighth innings by Princeton, combined with six Navy runs during that span were enough to derail the Tigers’ hopes of a day one sweep.

Arendt went 2-for-4 to close out the day leading the offense going 5-for-7 with a run and a walk.
