Spring 2011 Baseball: PSU Brandywine
April 6, 2011
Sophomore Harrison Myers pitched 6 innings of shutout in the 2-1 loss
MEDIA, Pa. – After two weeks of postponements, the Pennsylvania College of Technology baseball team got back into action against Penn State Brandywine in conference action Wednesday. Despite solid pitching performances from sophomore Harrison Myers (Lebanon) and freshman Philip Carnevale (Carteret, N.J.), the Wildcats were swept 2-1 and 7-3 in doubleheader action. Sophomore Matthew King (Southampton) had three hits and two RBIs in the losses.
In the opener, Penn College (9-4, 0-2 PSUAC) took a 1-0 lead into the bottom of the seventh on the arm of Myers who had a one hit shutout going into the inning. After Brandywine tied up the game and had a runner on third, the Wildcats intentionally walked to load the bases and set up a double play. A ground ball to shortstop got the runner out at second but a wild throw scored the winner for the Lions. King had two hits with an RBI in the fifth that put Penn College on the board.
In game two, the Wildcats gave up five runs in the third. Sophomore Garrett Hornung (Emporium) capped off three-run fifth inning with a two-RBI double. Brandywine added two runs in the bottom of the inning to put it out of reach. Freshman James Funk (Washington Boro) recorded the loss while Carnevale pitched three solid innings of relief giving up two runs.
Penn College will travel to Penn State Beaver Fri. April 8 for a 3 p.m. game.
