Penn baseball hosted Cornell this past weekend and kept its guests in single-digit scores for every game of the series sweep.

Starring at the dish through the series was sophomore third baseman Wyatt Henseler, who earned the honor of Ivy League Rookie of the Week for his second Ivy weekly recognition this season. Henseler hit 9-for-19 through the past week, contributed 12 RBIs, and put up a home run in a Wednesday afternoon contest at Rutgers and in both of the first two games of the Cornell series.

Henseler now ranks first in batting average and on-base plus slugging on Penn's roster, but his current statistics boost him to top places in the Ivy League as well.

The Quakers' straight series sweep over Cornell lands them a crucial momentum toward their final Ivy League matchups. With final scores of 10-1, 10-4, and 15-6, Penn's conference record climbs to 9-2.

Penn currently stands 22-9 overall, fast on the heels of Columbia (18-13, 10-2 Ivy) for the top standing.
