Penn baseball heating up as Ivy play opens

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.

“No, I don’t see any similarity to [Stanford’s athletic program],” Calhoun said when asked of her decision.
