HANOVER, N.H. — Right-handers Michael Danielak and Cole O’Connor each twirled seven innings of one-run ball to allow Dartmouth (17-11, 7-3 Ivy) to sweep a doubleheader from visiting Brown (9-16, 3-7 Ivy) on Saturday afternoon at Red Rolfe Field at Biondi Park by scores of 5-1 and 7-1. Sophomore Matt Feinstein drove in three runs in the opener, and senior Michael Ketchmark had three hits and scored three times in the nightcap as the Big Green beat Brown at home for the 13th and 14th consecutive game.

Danielak (6-1) settled in after loading the bases in the first with one out, inducing a double play to escape the jam, then going the distance in the seven-inning game for his second complete game. The senior surrendered the one run on six hits and one walk while fanning four to win for the sixth time in seven starts this year.

Brown had its ace on the mound in Christian Taugner (3-3), and although none of the seven hits he allowed went for extra bases, he also walked three and was done in a bit by his defense in the second inning as four unearned runs crossed the plate.

Taugner quickly retired the first two hitters in the fateful second stanza before freshman Michael Calamari snuck a single past the second baseman, sophomore Nate Ostmo beat out an infield hit and senior Adam Gauthier walked to load the bases for freshman Trevor Johnson at the top of the order. The rookie grounded a 1-2 pitch to the shortstop, but instead of the inning ending, the throw to first sailed just high, allowing Calamari and Ostmo to cross the plate. Feinstein followed with a two-run single to center to give Dartmouth a 4-0 lead.

The Bears immediately got one run back in the third when Sam Grigo tripled and trotted home on Marc Sredojevic’s deep fly to right. But in each of the next two innings, Brown had a runner caught stealing to quickly snuff out any possible rally.

The final Big Green run came home in the bottom of the fourth when Feinstein pulled a single between third and short, scoring Ostmo who had walked to lead off the inning and gone to second on a Gauthier sacrifice bunt.

Thanks to those two outs on the bases, Danielak faced the minimum over the final four frames, striking out a pair in the seventh to finish with a flourish.

Much like Danielak, O’Connor (4-1) found trouble in the first inning of game two as Brown loaded the bases on just four pitches with two singles and a hit batter. Josh Huntley then hit the next pitch for a sacrifice fly and a 1-0 lead, but even though the Bears loaded the bases again with one down, O’Connor denied any more scoring by getting a force at the plate and a routine fly to center.

And like the first game, Dartmouth took the lead for good in the second inning after two were out. Ketchmark ripped a double into the gap in left-center to get things started, but found himself still on third with two gone. Calamari walked before Brown hurler Reid Anderson uncorked a wild pitch to allow Ketchmark to slide across the plate with the tying run. Anderson’s control completely eluded him at that point as he walked the next three batters to force in the second run. After falling behind Feinstein with three straight balls, however, he was able to get a grounder to third to end the inning.

The Big Green lineup continued to torment Anderson in the third as the first five batters reached base to end his afternoon. Anderson hit junior Dustin Shirley with his first pitch of the inning, Ketchmark singled and junior Kyle Holbrook walked to load the bases. Junior Justin Fowler and Calamari both delivered RBI singles, leading Brown to summon Cameron Deere in from the bullpen. Although Deere walked Ostmo to force in a run to make it 5-1, he caught a break when Gauthier’s line drive was stabbed by the third baseman, and then got the double play he needed to wriggle out of the mess.

But the damage was done and O’Connor cruised after his rough first inning. The Bears did not have another runner advance past second with him on the mound, and only once had more than one man on base, that coming in the fifth when two were out. O’Connor fell behind 2-0, but managed to get an easy grounder to second to snuff out the threat. He then retired the next six batters he faced to finish his seven-inning stint having yielded one run on five hits — all singles — without a walk to go with a pair of strikeouts, throwing 108 pitches in the process.

Deere pitched hitless relief for 4.1 innings before Ketchmark ripped his second double of he game to left-center. An error put runners on the corners before Fowler lined an RBI double to left. The scoring concluded on Calamari’s chopper to first as Holbrook sprinted home with an unearned run.

Junior Marc Bachman and freshman Austen Michel both tossed a scoreless inning of relief to close out the victory.

Anderson (1-2) took the loss having given up five runs, all earned, on four hits and five walks in just two-plus innings.

While Ketchmark had three of the Big Green’s eight hits, Fowler and Calamari each contributed a pair of RBIs to the cause.

The two teams will conclude their four-game series on Sunday with another doubleheader with the first pitch scheduled for noon. The games will be streamed live on the Ivy League Digital Network with Wayne Young ’72 calling all of the action.

Notes: Shirley collected his 100th career hit in the first game of the doubleheader … Brown’s last (and only) victory on Dartmouth’s field since the renovation in 2009 was that very same year in the final game of the four-game series … the Big Green remain two games behind Yale in the Rolfe Division standings as the Bulldogs swept a doubleheader from Harvard today, 4-2 and 21-13.
