PHILADELPHIA – After concluding Ivy League play tied atop the Gehrig Division at 15-5, the University of Pennsylvania baseball team and Columbia will square off in a one-game playoff, this Saturday at 1 p.m. at Penn’s Meiklejohn Stadium, for the right to play in the Ivy League Championship Series.

After splitting its four-game series with the Lions this past weekend, Penn (24-16, 15-5 Ivy) was awarded hosting duties for the playoff game based off of League tiebreaker procedures. The Quakers hold the advantage over Columbia (24-17, 15-5 Ivy) due to the fact that they have the best winning percentage, against the next common opponent with the highest League winning percentage --regardless of division.

The next best winning percentage is Yale currently (11-9), which could potentially tie with Dartmouth (9-9) atop the Rolfe Division, with the Big Green having two games remaining. Penn holds the advantage despite the games remaining, after sweeping Dartmouth and Yale earlier this season, winning all four games, while Columbia went 1-3 against the two schools.

The winner of Penn and Columbia’s one-game playoff will represent the Gehrig Division in the Ivy League Championships Series slated to take place May 10-11.
