Baseball Team Continues Success

The Nittany Lion baseball team finished off the week going 3-1 despite having their mid-week contest against Pittsburgh canceled due to weather conditions.

On Friday Penn State had its home opener against Le Moyne as part of a four-game weekend stretch. The Lions dropped game one 10-5, but were quick to recover with a 6-2 victory over Le Moyne on Saturday. On Sunday the Lions swept a doubleheader against Le Moyne and Albany improving their season record to 15-7.

In game one against Le Moyne on Friday, the Lions got off to a fast start taking an early 3-0 lead, but it ended up as the squad’s only loss of the weekend. Jordan Steranka blasted two home runs in the effort.

Sophomore ace Steven Hill dominated game two on Saturday tossing a complete game giving up just two runs on five hits. He threw just over 100 pitches while not allowing a walk all afternoon. Hill improved his record to 2-1 on the year.

Joey DeBernardis paced the Lions on Sunday going 5-for-6 with 5 RBI’s leading the squad to two victories. Steranka continued his hot streak posting four hits and five runs scored on the day.

The Nittany Lions are back on the road this week for a Wednesday match-up against Kent State before returning home for a four-game stand. The home stand marks the beginning of Big Ten play starting Friday with a 6:35 p.m. match-up with Illinois.
