Penn State Baseball Weekend Preview

If you’re looking for something fun to do in State College this weekend, the Penn State baseball team (8-24 overall, 0-9 Big Ten) has a three-game series against Iowa (13-18 overall, 2-7 Big Ten) at Medlar Field. Four Hawkeyes are batting over .300, with Kris Goodman leading the team with a .344 average while J.C. Coban leads Penn State in batting with a .301 average.

Tonight (6:05 first pitch) is dollar dog night, but thunderstorms are expected throughout the evening, so don’t get your heart too set on attending the game. T.J. Jann (1-4 record) will start for Penn State. In his last outing, Jann held Michigan to seven scoreless innings allowing only two hits, giving him a 3.79 ERA on the season. Matt Dermody (6-1 record) will start for Iowa. Dermody leads the Hawkeyes in strikeouts with 39 in just over 57 innings. The game will be followed by fireworks.

With the Blue & White game starting at noon, you might need to head out early to make sure you get to Medlar on time for the first pitch at 2:05. Saturday is also the annual Wounded Warriors game. Steven Hill (1-4) will start for the Nittany Lions. Hill has a 3.65 ERA and leads the team in strikeouts with 36 over 56 innings. For Iowa, Andrew Hense will start. Hense has a 4.76 ERA, and will be making his fourth start of the season.

To close out the series, you can attend the annual THON game. A dollar of every ticket sold will be donated to THON. Penn State is yet to announce a starter for the game. Sasha Kuebel will start for Iowa. Kuebel has a 6.60 ERA.
