Penn State Baseball’s Travis Luensmann Wins Big Ten Co-Pitcher Of The Week

Penn State baseball’s Travis Luensmann is the Big Ten Co-Pitcher of the Week following his dominant relief appearance against Indiana that secured a 7-2 victory on Saturday.

He pitched four innings in relief, only giving up two hits and striking out 10 batters in the process. This is Luensmann’s first Big Ten Pitcher of the Week honor.

Luensmann entered the game in the sixth inning when the Nittany Lions were up 4-2 and proceeded to strike out the side in the sixth and seventh innings, respectively, and then added four more strikeouts over the last two innings en route to his first save of the season.

Overall, he is 4-1 on the year with a 3.06 ERA — the lowest on the team among pitchers who have enough innings to qualify. He has struck out 36 batters and has held opponents to a .188 batting average so far this season. He is Penn State’s first Big Ten Pitcher of the Week honoree since Dante Biasi in 2019.

The Nittany Lions’ next game is at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4, against Bucknell. Penn State is currently 14-10, but more importantly, it is 2-0 on Dollar Dog Nights and will try to keep that undefeated record tomorrow.
