UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The Ohio State baseball team picked up its first conference series sweep of the season taking both games in a doubleheader at Penn State Saturday at Medlar Field in Lubrano Park. Ohio State won game one, 5-1, before blowing out Penn State, 19-8, in the nightcap. The Scarlet and Gray claim their first Big Ten sweep since 2016. With the 3-0 mark on the weekend, Ohio State improves to 24-10 overall and 6-3 in conference action, while the Nittany Lions drop to 7-22 overall and 1-11 in league play.
“We won in different ways this weekend, which is great,” head coach Greg Beals said. “We won a one-run game on Friday and we won a game with our bats today in game three. That speaks to our ball club. We are willing to compete for each other and we made sure we took care of business.”
