Hagmaier Belts Two Home Runs, Vinyard, Ponce One Each
It was a day to remember for the Yale offense. The Bulldogs hit four home runs, scored 27 runs and had 33 hits in a doubleheader sweep at Cornell. Yale won the first game 12-5 and cruised to a 15-5, five-inning win in the second game.
Terra Jerpbak pitched a complete in the opener, scattering seven hits.
There were a number of big offensive contributors in the first game. Vinyard was 2-for-4 with two runs scored and three RBI, Annie Tarte was 2-for-3 with three RBI, Ponce was 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI, and Sydney Grobman was 2-for-4 with a run scored.
Yale scored three runs in the first inning, once in the third and then broke the game open by scoring three times in the fourth and five times in the fifth.
It was more of the same in the second game. The Bulldogs had a 12-3 lead after three innings and were never threatened. First year Katie Tews was 4-for-4 with three runs scored and an RBI. Hagmaier hit a grand slam in the second inning and added a solo shot in the fifth to finish with five RBI. Ponce's homer was inside the park and came later in the fifth.
Vinyard and Grobman each had three hits, while Jerpbak and Maya Seifert added a pair of hits.
Nic Conway struck out seven in five innings to earn her fourth win of the season in the circle.
Shelby Kennedy had a hit in both games.
With the two wins, Yale improved to 5-3 in Ivy League play.
The same two teams play a single game on Sunday. Because of the weather in Ithaca, the start time has been changed to 1 p.m.
