MEDFORD -- Junior pitcher Carlos Lopez

work to pace the Tufts Baseball team to a 2-0 victory over local
rival Brandeis University on Tuesday afternoon at Huskins Field.
Lopez held the Judges hitless into the fifth
inning until sophomore 3B Malcolm Cone-Coleman (Portland, ME)

save with a 1-2-3 ninth (two strike outs).
Brandeis starter Tyler Robinson (Manotick,

Bryan McDavitt (Holden, MA). He came home on a single by
junior C Chris Decembrele (Walpole, MA) with two outs.
The Jumbos extended their lead to 2-0 with
three singles in the fifth. Senior CF Jim O'Leary (North Easton,
MA) had a one-out base hit, moved to third on a base hit by
freshman RF Brian McDonough (Hanover, MA), then scored on a
single by junior LF Kyle Backstrom (Worcester, MA).
The Judges had base-runners in the seventh
