The Bulldogs look to keep pace in the Ivy League standings with a three-game series at Penn beginning on Saturday with a doubleheader starting at 11:30 a.m.  The teams will play a single game on Sunday beginning at noon.

Here are some news and notes heading into the weekend:

  • The Bulldogs, who have earned a spot in the Ivy League Championship Series (ILCS) three straight seasons, enter the weekend three-games back of the No. 2 position in the standings.  The top-two teams qualify for the ILCS.  Penn is one of two teams at 8-4 in the second spot.  
  • Griffin Dey continued his hot hitting on Wednesday and launched his team-leading eighth home run.  Dey is 8 for his last 19 after a 3-for-5 performance at Quinnipiac last Tuesday. The senior has 26 home runs in his Yale career and is two away from tying his season-high (10). He leads the team among everyday players in batting average (.347), RBI (34) and on-base percentage (.462).
  • Yale's starting pitchers have kept the Bulldogs in games. Alex StieglerScott Politz and Kumar Nambiar all had solid performances last weekend against Columbia.  Stiegler earned a spot on the Ivy League weekly honor rolll with his 10-strikeout, no-walk performance in seven innings against the Lions.  
  • In conference games, the Bulldogs lead the Ivy League with a 4.15 team ERA.
  • Yale entered the week ranked fourth in the nation in team fielding percentage (.981) and lead the Ivy League in conference games with a .987 percentage (6 errors in 12 games).  
  • Team captain Simon Whiteman continues to spark the offense for the Bulldogs.  He leads the team with 32 runs scored and 46 hits in 32 games.
  • Last season, the Bulldogs dropped two of three games at home to the Quakers.
