State College Spikes: O’Shea gets promotion

The State College Spikes lost a reliable arm from their pitching staff Tuesday when Ben O’Shea was promoted to full-season Class A Peoria.

The left-hander (3-1) was tied for the team lead in wins and innings pitched (26 1/3) with a 3.76 ERA, 21 strikeouts, just five walks and 22 hits allowed.

The Spikes open a six-game homestand Wednesday, beginning with a three-game series against the Lowell Spinners.
