BABSON PARK -- The Tufts University baseball team recorded a
sweep of host Babson College in a non-conference doubleheader at
Govoni Field on Sunday, winning by scores of 8-5 and 2-1.
Tufts (18-13) scored five runs in the fourth inning to take a 5-1
lead in game one, highlighted by a two-run single by freshman
Chase Rose (Scottsdale, AZ). The Beavers responded with three
runs in the bottom half of the inning, including two on a double to
right by senior Steve Tahmoush (Arlington, MA), but Tufts plated
another in the fifth and two more in the sixth for an 8-4 advantage.
Matt Delaney would knock in the Beavers� final run with his second
hit of the game in the sixth, but Jumbos� senior Jason Protano
(Milford, MA) pitched a scoreless seventh to save it for
classmate Adam Telian (Stoughton, MA), who improved to 5-4
with the victory. Rose and freshman Ian Goldberg (Lake Forest,
IL) each drove in three in the opener for Tufts, while Delaney
recorded three RBIs for Babson.
Game two featured a pitchers� duel between Tufts freshman Pat
O�Donnell (Worcester, MA) and Babson junior Jeff Wojnar
(Bellaire, TX). The Jumbos scored the game�s first run on an RBI
single by junior Kevin Casey (Milford, MA) in the third and
then added an unearned run on an RBI single by sophomore Alex
Grzymala (East Setauket, NY) in the fifth. The Jumbos made what
would turn out to be a big defensive play in the bottom of the fifth
when they cut down sophomore catcher Brian Scanlon (Lawrenceville,
NJ) trying to score on a single by sophomore CF Peter O'Toole
Babson plated an unearned run of its own off O�Donnell in the
seventh, as first-year Billy Besinger (Milton, MA) recorded a
run-scoring single to make it 2-1, but Protano came on to get the
final two outs for his second save of the day.
Despite the losses, Babson senior Matt Delaney (Newton, MA) still
made history for the Beavers as he went 4-for-8 to become the
program�s all-time hits leader.
