Penn State Baseball Goes 1-2 On The Road At Indiana

Penn State baseball (16-35) started its weekend series in Bloomington with a 5-2 win, but fell to the Hoosiers 5-2 and 10-2 on Saturday and Sunday at Bart Kaufman Field.

How It Happened

Game One

Starter Sal Biasi (5-5) gave the Nittany Lions seven strong innings Friday, allowing just four hits and a run. The Hazleton Township, Pa., native added six strikeouts in the victory before Taylor Lehman and Nick Distasio would finish things out. Designated hitter Brett Davis led the way offensively with two hits, including a solo homer in the top of the fifth, and two RBIs. Penn State chipped in two insurance runs in the top of the ninth to seal a 5-2 win.

Game Two

Justin Hagenman (1-10) continued his tough luck on the mound this season despite delivering eight innings of solid pitching. The Nittany Lion offense couldn’t back him up, as the Hoosiers took a 3-0 lead through the first five and wouldn’t look back. Willie Burger and Ryan Sloniger finished with two hits apiece in the loss, with Sloniger reaching base twice more on a pair of walks.

Game Three

Eric Mock (0-5) went three and a third innings for the Nittany Lions Sunday before Cooper went with a committee approach the rest of the way in a 10-2 setback. Shortstop Conlin Hughes paced the Penn State offense with two hits and an RBI, while Mason Nadeau and Christian Helsel scored the lone runs for the blue and white.
