It was quite an afternoon at storied Yale Field, where the Bulldogs closed out their regular season against Brown. Yale needed one win to clinch its division title, and had a magic number of two to clinch homefield advantage for the Ivy League Championship Series. It got a little hairy when Yale lost the first game 12-1, but the Bulldogs rallied to win the second game, and will host either Penn or Columbia in a three-game series next weekend for a chance to go to the NCAA Tournament. Yale hasn't been there since 1994. ... The state could have multiple teams in the tournament. Fairfield, after splitting a pair with Niagara, is leading the MAAC, and Central Connecticut, which split two with Binghamton, is battling Bryant for the top seed in the Northeast Conference. ... The UConn baseball team lost a crusher on Friday, when normally reliable closer John Russell gave up a game-tying grand slam to A.J. Bumpass, and eventually lost 5-4 on a passed ball. On Saturday, coach Jim Penders again brought Russell in with the bases loaded, in the eighth inning and the same hitter up. This time, Russell struck out Bumpass, got a double-play ball and closed out the Huskies' much needed 6-4 win over Cincinnati.
