Game Box Score
MEDFORD -- Nine Tufts University pitchers limited visiting
Brandeis to four hits as the Jumbo baseball team opened its 2010
home schedule with a 3-1 victory against the Judges on Tuesday
afternoon at Huskins Field.
Tufts scored three runs in the bottom of the first and was then
held scoreless the rest of the way by a Brandeis pitching
performance that was successful in its own right. The Jumbos
finished with five hits. The game was played in a tidy two hours, 34
Tufts sent eight men to the plate in the first, with sophomore 3B
Sam Sager (Cranston, RI) and junior DH Ben Walkley
(Trumbull, CT) hitting RBI singles. Junior RF Chase Rose
(Scottsdale, AZ) also brought in a run with a ground out.
Tuft starter Tom Hill (Robbinsville, NJ), who was credited
with the win, allowed a single to Brandeis sophomore RF John Chu
(Hollis Hills, NY) in the top of the first. The Judges didn't
get their next hit until the seventh inning. Alex Cronkite (Palos
Verdes Estates, CA), Jake Crawford (Boise, ID), and
Kevin Gilchrist (Medford, MA) pitched 1-2-3 innings for Tufts.
Meanwhile, Brandeis starter Dylon Britton (Poughquag, NY) settled
down and pitched into the fifth without allowing another run.
Sophomore Alex Tynan (Barnegat, NY) pitched out of a bases-loaded
jam in the fifth, while freshmen Stefan Weiss (Jericho, NY), Andrew
Weissenberg (Demarest, NJ), and Jesse Link (Weston, CT) all pitched
no-hit relief for the Judges.
One-out singles by senior DH John O'Brion (Portland, ME) and
sophomore SS Sean O'Hare (Southampton, MA) had the Judges
threatening in the top of the ninth. Pinch runner Kenny Destremps
(Mashpee, MA) scored their lone run on a wild pitch. Tufts sophomore
Chis DeGoti (Miami, FL) finished off his fourth save with a
come-backer to the mound.
With singles in each of the first two innings, Tufts junior LF
Ian Goldberg (Lake Forest, IL) was the lone player to finish the
game with two hits.
The Jumbos have won seven of eight overall to improve to 12-3,
while Brandeis has lost four of five to drop to 8-13. Tufts hosts a
NESCAC East Division set against Colby at Huskins Field this weekend
(Apr. 9-10). Brandeis is at Rhode Island College on Thursday.
