Lions to Host Doubleheader Against Coppin State

The Penn State baseball team will close out a six-game homestand today with a doubleheader against Coppin State. The first pitch of game one is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park, and the second game will follow thirty minutes after the conclusion.

Wednesday will feature a “Winning Weeknight Scratch  Off” game. The first 200 fans that show up to any weeknight game this season will receive a scratch off ticket. Each ticket guarantees its recepient a Penn State Baseball prize.

The Nittany Lions (5-16 overall) lost two of three this weekend against Indiana. Their win came on Saturday in extra-innings, 4-3. Junior shortstop Elliot Searer had the game-winning walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th inning to win the game.

The Lions are looking to gain some momentum against a less than stellar opponent (Coppin State is winless this year) before heading out for a weekend road series against Purdue. Senior lefthander Mike Franklin will get the start for the Lions in game one; while game two’s starter is still to be determined.

Penn State is still offering a fantastic deal for student season tickets that includes free food, a free shirt, and 2 batting practice sessions on the field at Lubrano Park.
