Athlete of the Week 4/15: Jeb Bemiss
RELEASE: ITHACA, NY– BRSN has named junior baseball pitcher Jeb Bemiss as this week’s Athlete of the Week. On Sunday, the right-hander pitched 7.2 scoreless innings in just his second-weekend start of the year en route to a 2-0 win over Harvard. Bemiss struck out eight while yielding just a pair of walks and a single on a chopper up the middle in the third inning. He fell behind in a count 2-0 just once before his final inning of work, and he retired 15 consecutive batters until a two-out strikeout in the eighth actually resulted in a baserunner after the third strike went all the way to the backstop. Sunday’s game was Cornell’s first one-hitter since its season finale in 2017, when it routed Princeton, 13-1. The Big Red returns home for its next two Ivy League series, starting with three games April 20-21 against Princeton here at Hoy Field.
