Robinson Selected Ivy Co-Pitcher of the Week
Dartmouth won two games during a trip to Kansas last week, and Robinson earned both of those victories on the mound. First, he made his second career start and hurled seven innings in a 10-3 triumph over Nebraska Omaha. He yielded just two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three, but he still trailed by a 2-1 score entering the seventh when the Big Green bats exploded for seven runs to blow open the game.
In the final game of the trip against then-No. 18 Kansas, Robinson entered the game to start the bottom of the ninth with the score tied at two. He worked around an error to start that inning to send the game into extra innings, then closed the door in the 10th to preserve the 3-2 lead and give Dartmouth its second victory over a ranked opponent this season.
For the week, Robinson posted a 2-0 record and a 2.00 ERA, giving up a mere five hits in nine innings with four strikeouts.
The first weekly award for a Big Green player this year came after the first week of play when senior outfielder Jeff Keller was pegged as the Ivy co-Player of the Week on March 4. That last pitcher to earn the honor for Dartmouth since left-hander Michael Johnson took home the award almost exactly one year ago on March 26, 2013.
Dartmouth (3-9) is scheduled to begin Ivy League play this weekend with a trip to Cornell (7-7) and Princeton (5-11) for noon doubleheaders on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
