Baseball Splits with Hamilton

The Williams College Baseball team took on Hamilton College in the final two games of the three-part series. After the first game yesterday, the Ephs were looking to complete their sweep in today’s action.

As they stood coming into the game, the Ephs record is 19-7 overall and 4-3 in conference. On the other side, Hamilton College sits at 14-15 overall with 4-6 in conference.

After a series of long delays and consistently poor weather, it ended in favor of the Ephs at 2-1. While both games were low scoring, they included all the excitement of a typical split series.

With this weekend’s baseball completed, the Ephs are entering the later portion of their season. Only five regular games separate the Ephs from a postseason run. Two of these games are out of conference, while the final three will be in conference against Wesleyan. The rescheduled series could factor in importantly for how the Ephs complete the regular season. Their next chance at competition will be a home game against Dean College. The Boomers have an 11-23 overall record and a 6-6 conference record. That game will take place on Tuesday 4/30 at 4:00 pm.

Playing at Williams isn’t easy. Lousy weather, short season.

I pitched opening day my freshman year. It was 34 degrees and snowing, Coach clearly didn’t want to risk our #1 or #2 pitcher on a day like that (!).

We ended up 9-2 and to my h.s. Coach’s shock, I was 2-0 with 3 saves, a 2.80 ERA, and a strikeout per inning (even good college hitters couldn’t hit what umpires told me was a near major league quality sinker).

I should check the NESCAC online tv schedule …
