Penn State softball: Jones’ homer not enought for Nittany Lions in loss to Indiana

Macy Jones hit her team leading eighth home run and Penn State out hit Indiana in a 9-3 loss on Friday at Beard Field.

Even though the Nittany Lions (21-18, 4-6 Big Ten) held a 10-9 advantage in the hit category, what hurt the most were the three home runs they gave up to Hoosier hitters.

Indiana’s Katelyn Conenna and Michell Huber each had a two-run home run while Rachel O’Malley tacked on a solo shot.

Jones’ home run came in the sixth inning, which came with no other runners on base.

Alyssa VanDerveer and Jones helped Penn State battle back after a two run deficit in the fourth inning to tie the game.
