Columbia wins Ivy League baseball title

May, 5, 2013
Columbia is headed to the 2013 NCAA baseball tournament.

The Lions clinched an automatic bid by winning the Ivy League title on Saturday, sweeping their championship doubleheader against Dartmouth.

Columbia won Game 1 in 10 innings, 6-5. Game 2 was a little more comfortable, as the Lions won 12-5.

Star slugger Joey Falcone, who served in the United States military in Iraq and Afghanistan and was profiled by last week, went 3-for-5 in the first game, and 3-for-4 in the nightcap.

The full NCAA tournament field and bracket will be revealed on Monday, May 27.
