Baseball Team Takes Series Over Northwestern

The Penn State Baseball team went 2-2 on the week, running their season mark to 19-10.

On Tuesday evening the Lions late rally wasn’t enough to seal a comeback in a 7-6 loss to Kent State. Third baseman Jordan Steranka continued his hot streak going 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored.

Friday’s game against Northwestern was postponed a day, turning Saturday’s contest into a doubleheader.

In the first game of the set, Penn State cruised to a 12-0 victory behind a stellar pitching performance by Steven Hill. Hill scattered seven hits and struck out two in a complete game shutout, improving his record to 4-1 with a 2.20 ERA on the season.

The Lions also grabbed game two of the twin bill in a 7-3 win over Northwestern. Starter John Walter picked up the win going six innings and allowing just two runs. He improved his season mark to 4-3.

The Lions offense was paced by Steranka and Joey DeBernardis during the doubleheader. Steranka went 4-for-8 with six runs scored on the afternoon, while DeBernardis went 5-for-10 with five RBIs.

In the weekend finale, the Wildcats avoided a three-game sweep by getting a 9-8 victory over the Lions.

The Nittany Lions will return to action today when they kick off an 11-game homestand with an outing against Mount St. Mary’s at 6:05 p.m.
