Box Score - Game One
Box Score - Game Two

The Princeton baseball team snapped its 10-game losing skid with a split Saturday at Navy. A pair of late runs lifted the Midshipmen to a 2-1 victory in the seven inning opening game, before the Tigers’ bats rattled off 13 hits to carry them to a 10-4 win to conclude the day.

Senior Zak Hermans went all 6.0 innings, striking out eight in 23 batters faced. He went five innings only giving up two hits, before things unraveled in the sixth. A one-out walk and a single put runners on second and third before Dave Milanes’ upset Princeton’s hopes of a victory with a game-winning two-RBI double. 

The Tigers tallied four hits, but it was a fielding error that allowed freshman Danny Hoy to prop them to a 1-0 lead in the fourth.

In the top of the sixth Princeton recorded two hits, even advancing a runner to third but ultimately stranding a pair of base runners.

It was the squad’s sixth one-run defeat this year.
