Baseball Buckeyes lose game and series to Penn State

MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM GAME COVERAGE (This is the 500th Article Post for the website)

Mario Eramo Nittany Lions (psu)

Penn State’s catcher Ben Heath is on the Johnny Bench Award list. Perhaps Johnny Bench should be watching Heath. His long homer-his 15th of the year-off Dean Wolosiansky’s first pitch of the 8th triggered a 7 run inning to break open a 4-3 game, and power the Lions to a 14-6 win over the baseball Buckeyes (22-13, 7-5 in the Big Ten). The Lions are now 17-22 and 4-8, and won the three game series 2-1, following an 18-10 win on Saturday.

After a plunked batter, Mario Eramo went deep to right for a 2-run shot. Before the two homers, all eight Lion hits were singles. Heath added a sacrifice fly in his second at-bat of the  8th, for his third RBI of the game. He entered the game with a .757 slugging average, and now  has 47 RBI’s in 38 games. In two of his other plate appearances, he put the ball in play and produced three unearned runs.

Wolosiansky deserved a better fate before the 8th. He cruised through the first three innings, facing only 10 batters, but saw three unearned runs score in the fourth. Jordan Steranka hit a  double-play ball that shortstop Tyler Engle bobbled, then Heath hit a double-play ball that third baseman Cory Rupert mishandled, scoring Steve Snyder with the Lion’s first run. Joey DeBernadis singled in Steranka, and with two outs, Sean Deegan singled in Heath with the inning’s third run.

The Lions added another two-out run in the fifth when Heath singled in Steranka.

The Buckeyes came back with a two-out run in the fifth as Michael Stephens singled in Zach Hurley for his team-leading 32nd RBI.

Rupert struck lightning on starter Ryan Ignas’ first pitch of the 6th, smacking a home run over the left field fence, then lightning in the skies sent the teams to their dugouts for the required safety delay. When play resumed, after a strikeout and a walk, Ignas gave way to David Lutz, who got Engle to bounce into an inning-ending double play.

The Buckeyes added another run in the 7th when Dan Burkhart’s sacrifice fly plated Hurley, who had led off with a double and moved to third on Cory Kovanda’s single.

ignas was helped by double plays in the 5th, 6th and 7th and raised his record to 3-3, while Wolosiansky fell to 3-5.

*The game was delayed 37 minutes as storms swept through the Columbus area.

* Buckeyes catcher Dan Burkhart has thrown out 13 of 29 (45 percent) potential base stealers this season.

* Zach Hurley extended his team-leading hitting streak to 12 games.

* Cory Rupert has now reached base safely in all 25 starts this season.

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.

Michael Stephens (osu)

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.

compiled by staff, wire and Milwaukee Bucks news

John Hammond Bucks (nba)

Milwaukee Bucks general manager John Hammond name has now been added to a long list of NBA executive of the year, including Hall of Fame members Jerry West and Red Auerbach.

Hammond became the first Bucks executive to win the award, after Milwaukee finished the regular season with 12 more wins than last season and earned its first playoff berth since 2006.

Bucks owner and United States Senator Herb Kohl hired Hammond, who had been Joe Dumars’ assistant in Detroit, just over two years ago to rebuild the floundering team’s fortunes.

Hammond received 12 of 30 votes from a panel of fellow NBA executives. Oklahoma City’s Sam Presti was second with nine votes and Cleveland’s Danny Ferry  took third with two votes in results announced on Saturday.

Despite losing Michael Redd to a season-ending knee injury in January and season-ending injuries to Andrew Bogut in early April, Milwaukee finished 46-36 to earn the sixth seed in the East and a first-round matchup with Atlanta.

Hammond’s decision to select Brandon Jennings with the 10th overall pick of  last year’s draft paid off when the guard earning a starting spot in training camp and went on to average 15.5 points during his rookie season.

The Bucks have emphasized defense since Hammond hired Scott Skiles as the  coach when he took over. The team was allowing 103.9 ppg in 2007-08 (23rd) to 96.0 ppg in 2009-10 (7th).
