The Penn Quakers secured a doubleheader sweep against Yale on Saturday, triumphing 7-4 in the first game and 9-6 in the second, held at George H.W. Bush '48 Field. 
With these victories, the Quakers (13-13, 5-3 Ivy) returned to a .500 record overall, breaking a four-game losing streak. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs dropped to 7-16 overall and 3-5 in Ivy League play. 
During the twin bill, Penn's offense was led by freshman Gavin Collins, who had an outstanding performance going 4-for-8 with four doubles and an RBI. 
Asa Wilson contributed with three hits and four RBIs, while Ryan Taylor and Davis Baker each notched three hits. 
The first game saw Wyatt Henseler making an impact with his Ivy League-leading 13th home run of the season, driving in three runs and tying the Ivy League's all-time record for career RBIs with 164. 
In the second game, Davis Baker continued his strong play, going 3-for-5 with four RBIs, narrowly missing a cycle by a single. 
Pitcher Cole Zaffiro improved his record to 3-3, allowing only two runs on five hits across 6.2 innings and striking out six. Carson Ozmer secured his third save of the season with a solid performance in relief. 
In another local Division I matchup, Saint Joseph's handed first-place Saint Louis its first conference loss with a convincing 9-1 victory at Smithson Field. 
Ryan DeSanto pitched effectively, allowing just one run on four hits over six innings to earn the win, while Matt McShane delivered a stellar three-inning save, allowing only one hit and striking out six. 
DeSanto rebounded impressively after a challenging start, not allowing another hit until the fifth inning. McShane closed out the game in dominant fashion, retiring the final eight Billiken hitters, including striking out the side in the ninth. 
Tim Dickinson and Carter Jagiela led the offensive charge for Saint Joseph's with three hits each, contributing to the team's well-rounded performance.
