A noisy, raucous and boisterous crowd of 1,421 fans showed up at Bill Davis Stadium in Columbus, as Ohio State took a half-game lead in the Big Ten Conference race by beating Penn State, 3-1 behind a record-tying pitching performance by All-American ace Alex Wimmers. The Buckeyes moved to 7-3 in the conference and 22-11 overall.

Wimmers, the junior from Cincinnati’s Archbishop Moeller High School, improved to 9-0 this season with a complete-game four-hitter that included 10 strikeouts. With the win, he ties a school record for the best start to a season that has been done only twice in 127 years of baseball at Ohio State. Doug Swearingen started 9-0 for Ohio State in 1982 and Scott Lewis opened 9-0 in 2003.

Wimmers, who is 18-2 the past two seasons, gave up two of the hits in the third inning-a double and a single- and they staked the Nittany Lions to a 1-0 lead. He also gave up a pair of two-out singles in the ninth. Wimmers did walk a season-high five batters, but his 10 strikeouts and scarce number of hits rendered that stat moot. The 10 strikeouts represented the 10th time in his career that he has struck out 10-or-more.

On Saturday afternoon in Bill Davis Stadium, Penn State brought out the lumber to beat Ohio State 18-10, in the middle game of the three-game series to even the series, 1-1.

Michael Stephens went 3-for-4 with 4 runs batted in and scored a run for the Buckeyes.

Elliot Searer finished the day 5-for-6 with a double and Ben Heath went 4-for-6 with two home runs and four runs batted in for the Nittany Lions. David Lutz picked up the win in relief for Penn State, going 4.2 scoreless innings, giving up a pair of hits.

It didn’t take Penn State long to get on the board in the first inning to go up 4-0 off Drew Rucinski and never gave the lead up although the Buckeyes got close at 14-10 later in the game.
