Marquette takes two from Tigers
PRINCETON — The Ottawa Marquette Crusaders defeated the Princeton Tigers one run at a time in the first half of a twinbill on Saturday and then doubled their pleasure in the nightcap, defeating the Tigers by scores of 5-1 and 10-1.
“The bats are still quiet,” Princeton coach Tim Taylor said. “If we don’t hit the ball, we can’t score runs, and we’re not hitting the ball well. Too many of us are popping up or watching the strike go by. We just have to get through the order with everybody getting the bat on the ball.”
The Tigers scattered 13 hits over the two games, seven in the opener and six in the nightcap. The Tigers; offense was paced by senior Sam Schlesinger, who was 3 for 5 on the afternoon with two stolen bases. Juniors Austin Schindel and Nick Rolando chipped in with a hit in each game while sophomore Isaiah Taylor collected two knocks in the nightcap including the Tigers’ only extra base hit of the day when he stroked a double in to lead off the game.
