HANOVER, N.H. — Junior Jack Fossand twirled seven shutout innings while surrendering a solitary hit as Dartmouth blanked Cornell in the second game of an Ivy League doubleheader on Sunday afternoon at Red Rolfe Field at Biondi Park, 5-0. In the seven-inning opener, the Big Red (13-11, 3-5 Ivy) tossed a shutout of their own to defeat the Big Green (15-10, 5-3 Ivy), 2-0.

Fossand (1-1) earned his first victory of the season by throwing a mere 72 pitches over his seven stanzas and only twice allowing a base runner to advance to second. The lone hit against him was a one-out single in the second, and he walked just two while striking out two. Although his defense committed a pair of errors, he had a number of stellar plays behind him to keep the innings quick, including a terrific diving grab in left by sophomore Matt Feinstein on a sinking line drive and a pair of double plays.

After Dartmouth was shut out on six hits in the opener, the Big Green bats went right to work in the bottom of the first against Cornell ace Paul Balestrieri, who entered the game third in the Ivy League with a 1.62 ERA. Freshman Trevor Johnson led off with a single, and after a force play, junior Kyle Holbrook and senior Michael Ketchmark also singled to bring home the game’s first run. Another single, this one a line drive to center, by freshman Michael Calamari scored the second run, and junior Justin Fowler added an RBI single back through the box to the Green a 3-0 advantage.

In the third, Feinstein sent the first pitch of the inning over the center fielder’s head for a triple, then scored on a Holbrook sacrifice fly. Ketchmark started another rally with his second of three hits in the game and was safe at second when a throw was dropped on a force play. Following a fielder’s choice, Fowler once again grounded a ball back up the middle for an RBI single for a 5-0 lead.

The rest of the game only featured goose eggs on the scoreboard. The Big Red’s best scoring opportunity against Fossand came in the fourth when Trey Baur reached on a throwing error and Pierre le Dorze was hit by a pitch. But Fossand got ahead of the next hitter with two quick strikes before inducing a routine 4-6-3 double play to end the threat.

Junior Marc Bachman tossed a scoreless eighth as the defense turned its third twin-killing of the game, and junior Patrick Peterson completed the shutout despite surrendering a leadoff double. Shortstop Nate Ostmo squeezed the final out on a pop to shortstop to strand the runner at third.

Ketchmark and Fowler both went 3-for-4 with the former scoring twice and driving in a run and the latter collecting a pair of RBIs. Dartmouth had 11 hits as a team, ending a six-game streak without double-digit knocks.

Balestrieri (4-2) took the loss for giving up a season-high five runs, four earned, on 10 hits over six innings to go with a walk and four strikeouts.

In the first game, Tommy Morris did not have nearly the same trouble with the Big Green lineup that Balestrieri did. The junior right-hander from Hawaii pitched the first six innings, yielding four singles without a walk and just one strikeout as his defense did most of the work, catching a number of routine fly balls — 12 of his 18 outs came on balls in the air.

The two teams traded zeroes for the first three innings, but senior Beau Sulser was touched for a solo home run in the fourth off the bat of Will Simoneit, his third of the year. In the fifth, a leadoff double led to a runner sitting on third with two down when Tommy Wagner swatted a pitch just over a diving Johnson in center for an RBI triple and a 2-0 lead.

Morris (1-1), meanwhile, faced just one batter over the minimum through five innings before Dartmouth finally put a scoring threat together in the sixth as Calamari and Feinstein singled to put runners on the corners with two down. But the very next pitch was skied to right for a can of corn to end the inning.

With Morris having thrown 77 pitches and showing signs of tiring in the sixth, Cornell summoned closer Paul Lannoo to pitch the seventh. Holbrook ripped a one-out single and Fowler followed with a base hit as well. But after the second out came on a fielder’s choice, Ostmo have the unfortunate luck to hit his line drive right at the left fielder to end the game, giving Lannoo his fifth save of the season.

Wagner and Kyle Gallagher each had two hits for the Big Red to account for half of the team’s eight safeties. Both Feinstein and Holbrook had two hits as the rest of the lineup mustered just two as well.

Sulser (3-1) was the tough-luck loser for surrendering the two runs on eight hits and two walks while fanning five.

Dartmouth next hosts UMass Lowell (14-12), which also won by a shutout today against Albany, 18-0, on Tuesday afternoon at Red Rolfe Field at Biondi Park. First pitch is slated for 3 p.m., and the game will be streamed live on the Ivy League Digital Network.
