You may have missed this yesterday (and with everything going on, how could you not), but Pitt's baseball team picked up its fourth straight win, beating Penn State on the road, 10-8. Victory number four tied their season-high winning streak. The game was Pitt's first one since being ranked No. 30 this week in the Collegiate Baseball Poll.
Despite a 5-14 record coming into the game, Penn State got out to a quick 5-0 lead and led 6-2 heading into the sixth inning. But the Panthers' offense took over there, giving them the lead with five runs. Penn State regained the lead again briefly in the bottom of that inning, but the Panthers shut them out the rest of the way and scored three runs over the final three innings to win.
The ten runs that Pitt scored was also the fourth straight game where they've racked up at least that many. Four players had two hits each, including outfielder Steven Shelinsky, who went 2-3 with three walks
Another nice win for Pitt who is now 16-6 on the season - and that includes a stellar 9-2 road record. Next up is a weekend series against Towson.
