After Kent State Win, Four More Home Games

Coming off a 16-run offensive explosion in a win on the road over conference foe Purdue on Sunday, the Penn State Nittany Lions baseball team continued to swing the bats well in a non-conference road win on Tuesday, defeating Kent State 9-7.

Senior Joey DeBernardis led the way for the Lions (9-18 overall, 2-4 Big Ten) with a career-high 4 hits, including a home run, a triple, and 4 RBI. Junior Luis Montesinos notched 2 doubles and 2 RBI. Freshman Aaron Novak also added 2 hits for the Lions.

Senior lefty Mike Franklin started the game on the hill, tossing 4.1 innings and allowing 4 earned runs. Sophomore lefty Tim Dunn earned the win in relief and junior Evan Dixon recorded the final 2 outs for the save.

The Lions will stay busy the remainder of the week, with home games in four of the next five days. Tonight, the Lions will look to win their third straight contest as they welcome Binghamton (8-11 overall) at 6 p.m. for “MLB Cap Night”. Any student that wears an MLB cap will get free admittance into the game at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. With the first full day of the MLB season set for Thursday, this is a great opportunity to show off your favorite team and get something for it.

Following the single game against Binghamton, Canisius (16-13 overall) will visit University Park for a 3-game weekend series beginning Friday at 6:05 p.m. Student season ticket holders who attend Friday’s game can eat for free as a part of Penn State baseball’s “Free Food Friday” promotion. Additionally, Friday will be dollar dog night.

Season tickets are still available for students for just $20. The deal for season tickets also includes free food, a free shirt, and 2 batting practice sessions on the field at Lubrano Park.
