With six different players collecting multiple hits, the Penn State baseball team racked up 15 hits and thumped Youngstown State 15-2 Tuesday night at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.
Aaron Novak, Taylor Skerpon, Steve Snyder, James Coates, Greg Guers and Alex Malinsky each had a pair of hits as the Nittany Lions (13-13) evened their record on the season.
Penn State got all the runs it needed with a seven-run first inning, sending 13 batters to the plate. Guers ripped a two-run double and Malinsky had a two-run single to highlight the five-hit inning.
The Nittany Lions later got an RBI single from Guers and a two-runs single from Skerpon in the fifth inning, a two-run double from Novak and an RBI single from J.J. White in the sixth and an RBI single from Skerpon in the eighth.
Never miss a local story.
Nick Hedge gave up two hits and two runs in 3 1/3 innings to earn the win for Penn State, which visits Purdue for a three-game series starting Friday.
