Box Score: Game One
Box Score: Game Two

Similar to the opening day of the series, the Princeton baseball team and Navy split Sunday’s action to conclude the Tigers’ annual Spring Trip. Princeton struggled to get its offense going in game one and fell 8-2, before bouncing back with a 4-2 victory to close out its season-opening road swing.

Game One

Princeton was limited to three hits, as Navy jumped out early and capitalized on its 13-hit performance.

While holding the Tigers without a hit over the opening two innings, the Midshipmen scored three runs and forced Princeton on its heels.

A botched fielder’s choice by Navy resulted in Tyler Servais scoring the Tigers’ first run of the day and cutting the Mids’ lead to 3-1.

That would be the closest the game would be, as Navy added four more runs in the third.

Princeton closed out the game recording two of its three hits, a Danny Hoy double and a Paul Tupper RBI single to center field, in the seventh.

Game Two

Paced by an early advantage, the Tigers were able to come away with a split in Sunday’s twinbill.

The offense picked up from the get-go, as Princeton capitalized on its three hits to go up 2-0 in the first behind an RBI grounder from Tupper and an RBI single from Zach Belski.

Freshman pitcher Chad Powers controlled the of the game, giving up only two hits and one run over his six innings of work, and earned his first career victory.

Belski added his second RBI single in the third to put Princeton up 3-0. He finished going 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and a walk.

Navy broke up Powers’ shutout in the sixth, cutting the Tigers’ lead to two runs, 3-1.

Both sides finished the game adding a run apiece, with Princeton’s coming off Tupper’s RBI triple.

Tupper finished with a hit, two RBI and a walk.

The Tigers tallied nine hits in the game, led by Alec Keller who went 3-for-3 with three runs and two walks.

Princeton (5-11) returns home to host its season and Ivy opener versus Harvard (Mar. 29) and Dartmouth (Mar. 30).
