Game 1 Box Score

Game 2 Box Score

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 (Salem, MA).

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.
