For the third consecutive season, senior third baseman Wyatt Henseler has continued his record-breaking streak at Penn, launching his 19th home run of the year in a 14-4 loss to Harvard on Sunday. 
Despite the defeat, the Quakers (17-21, 9-9 Ivy) secured a series victory with two wins on Saturday, strengthening their hold on the fourth and final Ivy League postseason tournament spot. This success sets the stage for an upcoming home series against Dartmouth this weekend. 
The race for postseason contention remains tight, with Yale also sporting a 9-9 Ivy League record. However, Penn holds the tiebreaker due to their two-out-of-three victories against the Bulldogs this season. Meanwhile, Harvard trails by just one game and is set to face Yale in a crucial three-game series in New Haven next weekend. 
As has been the case for much of his storied career, Henseler carried the Quakers offense this weekend in Cambridge as he hit .556 (5-for-9) in the three-game series for Penn with three long balls, a double, and four RBIs. The homer was the 51st of his career.
