PRINCETON -- Brown used a three-run home run and a pair of two-run blasts in the second game to take both ends of an Ivy League doubleheader on Sunday afternoon at Clarke Field. Brown took Game 1 by a 7-4 score and won the nightcap 7-2.

Game 1 (Box Score)

Brown took the first game by a 7-3 score, breaking open a one-run game with a three-run homer in the sixth inning. Brown scored the game’s first two runs, but Princeton drew even at 2-2 before Brown went ahead in the third.

Brown’s first two runs came in the second inning when Princeton junior starter Langford Stuber got in trouble with a hit batsman and two walks. With the bases full and no outs, the Bears took a lead on a Steve Daniels sacrifice fly. Another runs came home on a Chris Tanabe single.

The Tigers evened up the score an inning later with two runs in the third inning. After bunting for a hit and moving to third on a steal and wild pitch, senior Derek Beckman scored on a sac fly. Sophomore Greg Van Horn, who walked in the inning, also scored on junior David Hale’s double.

The Bears regained the lead with an unearned run in the fourth and then widened the gap in the sixth on Dan Shapiro’s home run. The three run blast to right field came on a full count with two outs and two on.

Princeton got a run back in the sixth when senior Adrian Turnham had a pinch-hit single to plate sophomore Matt Connor. Brown added a final run in the seventh.

The win went to Matt Boylan, who allowed two runs in a four and a third innings pitched. Matthew Kimball got the save. Stuber took the loss, surrendering the first three runs and falling to 2-2 overall.

Game 2
(Box Score)

In the second game, the Tigers jumped on top with two runs in the first inning as Princeton’s first four batters all singled. Beckman scored the first run on an overthrow on a relay and senior Dan DeGeorge scored Princeton’s second run on a Van Horn single.

Brown starter Josh Feit settled in from there, allowing just two hits over the final eight innings in the complete game win. Brown tied the game in the fourth inning on a Robert Papenhouse home run and went ahead an inning later on Pete Greskoff’s two-run homer. Brown added two more runs that inning and Steve Daniels hit a solo homer in the sixth.

Turnham had two hits in the game for Princeton.

The loss went to sophomore David Palms, who allowed six runs in five innings of work. Feit got the win with two runs on six hits in nine innings pitched.

Princeton fell to 8-9 overall and 1-3 in the Ivy League with the loss. The Tigers visit Monmouth on Tuesday afternoon.
