Penn State baseball: Nittany Lions shut out by Ohio State

April 12, 2014 

— Coming off a 5-4 win over Ohio State on Friday, Penn State was off to its best start in the Big Ten since 2001.

The Nittany Lions (17-15, 5-3 Big Ten) couldn’t continue that momentum as the Buckeyes (20-15, 3-8) got the shut out victory 7-0 on Saturday afternoon at Nick Swisher Field at Bill Davis Stadium.

Ohio State’s Greg Greve was dominant tossing a complete game shutout. Greve scattered four hits over the nine innings, allowing just two walks and recording three strikeouts and used just 86 pitches.

The lone bright spot for the Penn State’s offense was Greg Guers’ day at the plate. He went 2 for 4 at the plate and was the only Nittany Lion hitter to record multiple base hits.

Penn State will play the rubber game of the three-game set against the Buckeyes on Sunday.
