Penn State Baseball Tops Lafayette 9-2 At Home

Penn State baseball (14-26, 2-10 Big Ten) jumped out to a 4-0 lead over Lafayette in the bottom of the first inning Wednesday night at Medlar Field. It wouldn’t look back in a 9-2 win.

How It Happened

Freshman Mason Nadeau continued his strong play since returning to the lineup from an injury. He belted his first collegiate home run in the home half of the sixth and added four put-outs in center field. Junior starter Schuyler Bates (2-3) rode five strong innings to the victory, allowing just five hits and two earned runs.

Left fielder Nick Riotto also enjoyed a successful night at the dish, leading the Nittany Lion offense with three RBIs on two hits. Conlin Hughes and Alex Malinsky posted two hits apiece in the win — Penn State’s second in a row dating back to Sunday’s 2-1 triumph over Northwestern.

The Nittany Lion relievers — Nick Distasio, Dakota Forsyth, and Taylor Lehman — turned in a standout performance, refusing to give up a run in four innings of work. Despite recording only two more hits than the Leopards (12-10), Penn State cruised to an easy, 9-2, mid-week win.

Player Of The Game

Mason Nadeau | Freshman | Center fielder

The Lansdale, Pa., native finished the night 2 for 4 from the plate with a two-RBI homer, two runs, and a walk.

What’s Next?

Penn State will travel to Iowa City this weekend for a three-game series with the Hawkeyes. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. ET on Friday.
