Baseball steals one game from Red Rolfe champs

(05/05/05 9:00am)

Coming off of a Red Rolfe title and a heartbreaking loss to Princeton in the Ivy Championships last year, the Dartmouth baseball team had large shoes to fill. The loss of key starting pitchers and offensive dynamos added to the uncertain 2005 season for the Big Green. Despite endorsement by "Baseball America" for the Ivy title this year, the Big Green failed to meet the high expectations for the season, ending league play with three losses to Harvard in four games. Harvard (24-14, 15-5) swept the doubleheader on Sunday with two one-run wins of 9-8 and 11-10 against the Big Green (13-20, 8-12 Ivy). Dartmouth managed to pick up a win against the champions of the Red Rolfe title in the second game of the doubleheader on Monday. The Crimson won the first game 10-6 before surrendering the nightcap 8-5.

Dartmouth's Record Breakers

(04/25/05 9:00am)

Baseball's running game has been a source of tension for many fans and enthusiasts over the years. Baseball purists have bemoaned the decline of the stolen base as one of the games current flaws. Those who follow the "Moneyball" approach to baseball, however, see the stolen base as a risk that base runners shouldn't necessarily take. These two camps will debate the issue for the years to come, but it won't change sophomore Will Bashelor's approach to the game.

Big Green outlasts Big Red, sweeps two-game series

(04/12/05 9:00am)

This weekend saw two more starts and two more wins for the Big Green baseball squad. Sunday afternoon the Dartmouth baseball team came out on top in both games of the doubleheader, 6-2 and 4-3, against Cornell at Red Rolfe Field. Both games were defined by solid pitching and timely hitting. The Big Green (9-9, 6-2 Ivy) extended its winning streak to six games, the longest since a 12-game streak in 2000. Dartmouth has won its last seven games against Cornell (6-13, 1-5). After this weekend, it's clear to the Big Green that this year's team is not the same as last year's, but different doesn't mean worse. The games against Cornell and Princeton established positive team morale giving the players the confidence needed going into the divisional play.

The junior from Pueblo, Colo., has received a slew of awards and accolades since coming to Hanover and looks to continue that streak, having been one of three Ivy League pitchers designated as "Players to Watch" in Baseball America's 2005 college preview. Baseball America also listed Faiola as the top Ivy prospect for the 2005 and 2006 drafts.
