Cambridge, MA – Brown took a pair of critical Ivy games from Harvard on a rainy Sunday afternoon, taking 10-3 and 7-1 victories over the Crimson behind strong pitching performances from rookie Kevin Carlow and senior Will Weidig. The duo combined to throw 13.2 of the 16 innings, while allowing just four combined runs, while Brown's offense turned in an efficient day at the plate.
In the first game, the bats for both sides were relatively quiet early in the game, before the Bears broke through with a three-run third inning, sparked by a two-run double from freshman Cody Slaughter. Though Harvard pulled back to within 4-3 in the fourth, Brown added three more runs in both the fifth and seventh innings, pulling away late for the 10-3 victory.
Carlow turned in another solid start in an impressive rookie season, throwing his second consecutive complete game, while allowing just three runs and striking out five, running his record to 4-2 on the year.
In the rematch, Weidig was similarly effective, lasting 6.1 innings and allowing a single run, striking out three. Junior Andrew Bakowski then came on in relief, and closed out the game while shutting out the Crimson. At the plate, Brown took an early 1-0 lead in the first, and continued pulling away to take a 7-1 win.
The Bears will be back in action tomorrow afternoon, when they play another doubleheader at Harvard beginning at 12:00 p.m.
