WEST HARTFORD, CT - Harvard University loaded the bases with no one out in the sixth inning, eventually scoring a pair of runs to help the Crimson win the second game of a doubleheader with the Pioneers 3-2 Saturday afternoon at the University of Hartford.

Sacred Heart, 6-11, took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning off Harvard starter Marcus Way on an RBI double by Rob Griffith that scored Steve Tedesco.

Harvard, 4-11, tied it in the top of the fourth when Mike Albright homered to right field on the first pitch he saw from starter Troy Scribner.

Scribner surrendered a pair of singles to start the sixth and then walked Dan Zailskas to load the bases. Sophomore Chris Dionisio came out of the bullpen in relief and got the first out when Brent Suter hit a fielder's choice to first and the runner on third was forced at home. The Crimson took the lead on when Dillon O'Neill singled to left to drive home a run. Kyle Larrow made it 3-1 when he lifted a sacrifice fly to center.

The Pioneers got one back in the bottom of the sixth when Chris Whittemore singled home pinch runner MJ Schifano from second. Schifano was running for Griffith who had walked with one out.

Dionisio pitched a scoreless seventh and the Pioneers got a leadoff double in the bottom of the frame from sophomore Mike Olszyk off Harvard reliever Will Keuper. Keuper then got Rocco Gondek on strikes, got JJ Edwards to line out to third, and fanned Mike Drowne to end the game.

The Pioneers are back in action on Tuesday at home against Iona College at 3:30.
