PRINCETON, N.J. -- Rain forced the Harvard baseball team's Ivy League opener at Princeton to be suspended on Saturday after four full innings. Game one of the doubleheader will be resumed at a later date, along with the playing of game two.

The two clubs quickly moved through two innings of scoreless play, but the Tigers struck first in the bottom of the third. PU grabbed three hits to take a 1-0 lead into the fourth. From there, though, Harvard tacked on a run of its own after finally earning its first base knock. After Mike Martin secured a two-out single, Brandon Kregel brought him home with a booming RBI double to knot things at 1-1.

Harvard will travel to Ithaca, N.Y., this evening, ready to play Cornell tomorrow.
