Nittany Lion Baseball Team Off to Fast Start
The Nittany Lion baseball team finished up a three game road trip to Kansas taking two of three games from 26th ranked Wichita State. The two victories over the team’s toughest opponent of the season improved Penn State’s record to 12-6.
Game one of three didn’t turn out exactly how the Lions envisioned when they got shut-out 9-0. They were quick to recover, however, as the Lions notched victories in the following two contests 4-2 and 9-4.
In game two, Steven Hill tossed 7.1 innings of one run baseball allowing just three hits. Hill improved his record on year to 2-1. Bobby Jacobs paced the Lion offense with a 3-for-3 performance that included a run scored.
The rubber match turned out to need extra innings as the two clubs remained deadlocked at four after nine innings. For the second time this season, Penn State’s offense erupted for fives run in extra innings to secure a win. Sean Deegan broke the tie with a clutch RBI triple to start the rally.
Penn State’s season is off to a phenomenal start with Big Ten play just around the corner. The Nittany Lions travel to Pittsburgh tomorrow to face the Panthers at 3:00 p.m. The squad will then return to Happy Valley for the season’s home-opener Friday against Le Moyne at 3:35 p.m.
