The Carnegie Mellon baseball club finished its spring season yesterday with a doubleheader against Robert Morris University. Robert Morris took the first game 5–0, but the Tartans came back to win the second game by the mercy rule 11–1. Carnegie Mellon ends its season with a 4–13 record overall and 3–10 in the North Atlantic South Conference.
During the first game on Sunday, senior pitcher Matt Corbett and sophomore Brett Rehfeld had the Tartans’ only hits, as the Tartans were unable to come up with a run in the loss. Corbett threw a complete game, allowing five runs on 10 hits.
In the second game, the Tartans came out strong and scored four runs in the first inning to take a 4–0 lead.
Senior Jack Bader’s two-run homer in the third increased Carnegie Mellon’s lead to 6–0 before Robert Morris scored one run and Carnegie Mellon scored five more to end the game early on the mercy rule.
Bader led the Tartans’ offense with two hits and four RBI. Sophomore Brian Tabata and first-year James Langhauser each had two hits and two RBI, while junior Jim Stedman had a hit and three RBI.
Junior Ryan Comes and first-year Dave Watters had two hits and an RBI apiece, and Corbett had a hit to round out the Tartan offense.
Sophomore pitcher Jon Coens threw for five innings and allowed only three hits and one run in the win.
The Carnegie Mellon rowing club traveled to West Virginia on Saturday to compete in the Governor’s Cup, which was hosted by the University of Charleston. All of the Tartans’ boats made it to their respective finals, but poor water conditions caused most of the finals to be canceled.
Only graduate student Jon McCune and senior Adam Suhy were able to compete in their finals. They took first place in the men’s double event.
