It’s pretty safe to say Penn baseball coach John Yurkow could use a little less excitement in his life.
Penn baseball had a wild first weekend of Ivy League play.
Penn baseball had a dreadful start to its season, but the Red and Blue have finally gained some momentum, and not a moment too soon.
Penn baseball is heating up at just the right time.
After struggling early on in nonconference play, the Quakers (4-8) look to extend their three-game winning streak as the squad prepares for the start of Ivy League play this weekend when it hosts a pair of doubleheaders against Harvard and Dartmouth.
One of the team's bright spots through a dozen contests, Penn’s formidable pitching staff will be put to the test on Saturday against the Crimson (10-8), who have posted at least eight runs in five of their last six games. Senior captain Connor Cuff is set to start the opener on Saturday, while sophomore southpaw Mike Reitcheck is expected to get the nod in game two.
Cuff has been rounding into form recently – the 2014 first-team All-Ivy selection boasts an ERA of 1.00 and is coming off an impressive complete game victory over Lafayette on Sunday.
The road has not been kind to Penn baseball thus far this season, but a return home was not the antidote that the Red and Blue had hoped for.
I should start by coming clean: Baseball is my favorite sport.
