ITHACA, N.Y. – Sophomore Chris Cruz (Mohawk Valley 2012)
hit a pair of home runs Sunday, giving him 11 on the season to tie the program record for home runs in a single campaign while helping the baseball team to a doubleheader split with Columbia at Hoy Field. The Big Red won the opener, 5-4, then saw its 10-game Ivy League winning streak end with a 5-1 loss in the nightcap.
Cornell (24-8-1, 10-2) still leads the Ivy League's Lou Gehrig Division by one game over Princeton, which also split a Sunday doubleheader. The victory in Sunday's first game made the Big Red 17 games above .500 for the first time in the 143-year history of the program.
Cruz's 11 homers ties the program mark, shared with Eric Kirby (1995) and Erik Rico (2002).
