Lions Win Seven of Nine On Road Trip

The Nittany Lion baseball team finished up their week taking three games out of four against Norfolk State in back to back doubleheaders.

Penn State (10-5) just finished a 10-day spring break road trip winning seven games out of nine. During the trip, the Lions built a five game win streak,  the longest streak the squad has had since March of 2008.

The Nittany Lions started the week with victories over Old Dominion 6-1 and 10-4 on Tuesday and Wednesday. The 6-1 score doesn’t indicate how close the game really was. The teams were deadlocked at one before Penn State’s offense erupted for five runs in the top of the 11th inning.

The squad took both games from Norfolk State on Saturday led by Sean Deegan and Jordan Steranka who combined for 12 hits on the day, each going 6-for-8.

The five game win streak was snapped Sunday afternoon with a 4-2 loss to Norfolk State. The Lions avenged their loss quickly with a 5-0 win in the second half of the doubleheader. Dave Walkling tossed 5.1 innings of no-hit baseball and struck out a career high of 11 in the victory.

On the season, Walkling is 4-0 with an era of just 1.10 and an opponent batting average of .190.

Offensively, Sean Deegan is leading the team in the three major categories. He is hitting .419 with three home runs and 15 RBIs. Steranka, Joey DeBernardis, and Luis Montesinos are all also hitting over.300 to pace the Nittany Lion offense.
