There’s really only one way to describe the end of Penn baseball’s season: Frustrating.

Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity, to seize everything you ever wanted, would you capture it, or just let it slip? That is the question currently facing Penn baseball, which will travel well over eight miles to Columbia this weekend to play in the Lou Gehrig Division’s one-game playoff. The winner of the game will head on to the Ivy League championship series, where it will take on Red Rolfe Division champion Dartmouth.

Penn baseball knew it would be in for its greatest test of the season this weekend against an evenly matched opponent in Columbia. The Quakers  took the field on Saturday tied for first place in the Ivy League's Lou Gehrig Division hoping to clinch the title by winning at least three out of the four games.

To paraphrase the famous hardball philosopher Yogi Berra, it’s deja vu all over again. For the second time in as many years, Penn baseball enters the final weekend of the regular season tied with Columbia atop the Ivy League’s Lou Gehrig Division. And for the second consecutive year, the Quakers (20-12, 14-2 Ivy) will face off with their foes from the Big Apple in a winner-take-all, four game series.

Exactly one year ago today, Penn baseball stood tied atop the Lou Gehrig Division heading into a four-game series against Columbia. Some outside the program viewed their success as unexpected, shocking even.

For the second straight year, Penn baseball controls its own destiny with a four-game series against the Columbia Lions on the horizon. Princeton may have been the team in the opposite dugout this weekend, but for the Quakers, keeping pace with Columbia has been the chief concern as the race for the Lou Gehrig Division championship continues to gain steam.

Each year, the start of spring heralds the most glorious time of the year—great weather, fun times as school winds down and, of course, baseball season. While the Philadelphia Phillies may have 154 games remaining in their regular season, Penn baseball is nearing the peak of Ivy League play with only two series remaining against Princeton and Columbia, respectively.

A lot of things don’t live up to the hype.

The Big Red weren't able to break the momentum of the red-hot Quakers this weekend. Penn baseball took three out of four games from Cornell over the weekend in the teams’ opening series of Lou Gehrig Division play.

The date was April 13, 2014. Those of you with keen memories will remember this day as the Sunday of last year’s Fling weekend.

On Tuesday, Penn baseball took a seven-game winning streak to Plymouth Meeting, Pa., to take on Villanova in the Liberty Bell Classic.

Pitching? Check. Offense? Check. Penn baseball notched two Big 5 awards Monday, as senior outfielder Connor Betbeze took home Player of the Week while teammate and fellow senior Ronnie Glenn notched Pitcher of the Week. The awards came on the heels of a perfect seven-game stretch for the Quakers, who, in addition to a midweek victory over Saint Peter’s, notched doubleheader sweeps of conference foes Brown, Yale and Harvard. Glenn was dominant in his two appearances, notching two wins — both complete games — against Harvard and Brown.

After powering through the Ivy League’s four Red Rolfe division squads, Penn baseball returns to Philadelphia for a slight changeup in its action. Only two days after completing a four-game sweep against Yale and Brown by a combined 52-10, the Quakers return to the diamond on Tuesday in the semifinals of the Liberty Bell Classic against Big 5 rival Villanova. The midweek matinee marks the second time this season Penn (12-9) and the Wildcats (11-15) face off.

Penn baseball put on quite a power display this weekend. Facing two Ivy League rivals on the road, the Quakers (12-9, 7-1 Ivy) handily dispatched Yale on Saturday and Brown on Sunday.

Penn baseball easily takes down St. Peter's, 11-4

As Penn baseball opened up its April slate on Wednesday afternoon, Saint Peter's stood no chance of fooling the Quakers at Meiklejohn Stadium. Behind senior infielder Mitch Montaldo's two home runs and three RBI and a masterful outing by senior pitcher Dan Gautieri, the Red and Blue scored their seventh win in their last eight contests with an 11-4 victory over the Peacocks.
