PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It all comes down to this for the Penn baseball team.
The Ivy League’s Gehrig Division title will be on the line on Saturday afternoon as the 24-16 Quakers host 24-17 Columbia in a one-game playoff.
The two teams finished the regular season with identical 15-5 “Ancient 8” marks. Last weekend they battled four times, each team winning twice, setting up this showdown on Saturday.
“It was a tough series last weekend,” Penn head coach John Yurkow tells KYW Newsradio. “You have two very good teams playing hard and nobody wanted to give in. So it doesn’t surprise me that it’s going to take a one-game playoff to determine our division championship.”
