Five errors were the undoing of Penn State baseball on Sunday as the Nittany Lions gave up a two-run advantage to fall to Richmond 6-5.
Senior first baseman Tyler Kendall went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBIs, James Coates drove in two runs and left fielder Greg Guers sent in a runner and scored twice himself.
Richmond tied the game in the seventh inning after entering with a 5-3 deficit. The Spiders scored the go-ahead run in the eighth after left fielder Kyle Adams (who reached after an error to lead off the frame) was sent in on an RBI single by right fielder Jansen Fraser.
Penn State had 10 hits in the effort. Right-hander Justin Hagenman pitched 6 2/3 innings for the Nittany Lions, allowing five runs (three earned) on seven hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Veteran closer Jack Anderson was given the loss after allowing the go-ahead run.
The Nittany Lions return home for their next five games starting with a three-game series against Niagara Friday at 5:30 p.m.
