Milo Sklar: I would say that we aren’t tempering our expectat...

The baseball team ended its season with three consecutive losses of 14–2, 13–6 and 4–1 against the DePauw University Tigers this past weekend in the North Coast Athletic Conference Crossover Series. With the losses, the Yeomen were eliminated from the conference tournament, and the Tigers will advance to Chillicothe, Ohio this weekend for the playoffs. “Obviously, it wasn't the result we wanted,” junior outfielder Andrew Hutson said. “DePauw came out and played the best series of their season and beat us, simple as that. No reason for us to be too down about it.” The Tigers set the pace in the first game of the series, scoring 14 runs before the Yeomen could get on the board. “We scored in each...

Last Sunday the Yeomen played the Case Western Reserve University Spartans in a doubleheader, winning the first game in walk-off fashion and losing the second in a blowout. The Spartans are a nationally ranked team and first in their conference, so the Yeomen knew they were in for a challenging set of games. “A lot of teams tend to psych themselves out before playing tougher opponents,” first-year Justin Cruz said. “The fact that we came out and didn't let their good reputation affect...

The baseball team will hit the road this weekend for its first games of the season. This spring the Yeomen welcome 10 first-years to their roster, pushing the total number to 39 players.
