Yale gets no-hit, somehow wins anyway

In this handsome electronic space, it's not often that we wander into the wilds of Ivy League baseball, but just look at us: lost in a thicket of ivy. We're here because you need to know that Yale was recently no-hit by UMass-Lowell. That in and of itself isn't all that notable, but what follows is. Here's the dirty from the Yale Daily News:

The Bulldogs' breakthrough came in the bottom of the fifth inning. Green Campbell '15 was hit by a Bracha pitch to start the “rally.” Captain and shortstop Cale Hanson '14 then reached on an error, placing men on first and second for the Elis.

One wild pitch and a Brent Lawson '16 sacrifice squeeze later, the Bulldogs had all the scoring they would need to spoil the sixth no-hitter in UMass Lowell (8–3, 2–0 America East) history.

So ... HBP, error, wild pitch, squeeze play, and Yale plates a run sans hit. Then they win. Even though they got no-hit.

This calls to mind an immutable truth: Even when the Ivy Leaguers lose, they win. Also note that each player's graduation year is listed above. That's for your convenience, as that's when the Yalie in question will start telling you what to do and how to do it, just before firing you.

Anyhow, since it's customary to include photo art in an EOB post and since the usual archives are curiously free of Yale baseball images, here's President George H.W. Bush back in his days as a Yale first baseman ...

Lest we forget: Yale got no-hit and won anyway.
