NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Alex Stiegler struck out 10 over seven innings for the Bulldogs in a 4-1 loss to Columbia on Sunday afternoon.
It was the second time this season Stiegler fanned at least 10 in a start. He's gone at least seven innings in all four of his Ivy League starts and has a 1.72 ERA against conference opponents in 31 and 1/3 innings.
The Bulldogs left nine on base today and couldn't produce the big hit at the right time. With the loss, the Bulldogs dropped to 5-7 in league play and Columbia improved to 9-3 in the conference.
Whiteman stole second and advanced to third on a Griffin Dey single. Gehri ranks second on team with 26 RBI.
Up next in league play, the Bulldogs travel to Penn next weekend. The Quakers will enter the series at 8-4 in the Ivy League.
Yale's next game is on Tuesday with a match-up at Quinnipiac for a 3 p.m. start. The Bulldogs defeated the Bobcats 11-2 back on March 20.
