Drew Rucinski picked up the win to move to 5-1 on the season, hurling 6.2 innings, giving up six hits, two runs (one earned) while striking out seven. Jared Strayer and Josh Dezse retired the last six Wolverines in order over the last two innings to close out the win.

Rucinski lowered his Big Ten leading ERA to 2.11.

The two highest strikeout games of Rucinski’s career have both come at the expense of the Michigan Wolverines. He struck out a career-high nine in a complete game win May 1, 2010 in Ann Arbor. He moves up to 2-0 with a 2.21 and 20 strikeouts in 20.1 innings pitched in his career against the Wolverines. Rucinski has given up two earned runs or fewer in eight of his nine starts this season and one earned run or fewer in six of those games.

Dezse finished the game 2-for-3 with four RBI’s and a run scored while Ryan Cypret and Tyler Engle each recorded two-hit games. Cypret and Dezse each recorded their 13th multi-hit games of the season to tie for the team lead.

Ohio State’s baseball team jumped out to an early lead and hung on to beat Western Michigan, 4-3, behind a strong outing from starter Drew Rucinski and a solid day at the plate from Matt Streng on Friday afternoon at Charlotte Sports Park in Port Charlotte, Florida.

Rucinski picked up his first win of the season, going seven innings, giving up two earned runs on six hits while striking out three. Streng went 3-for-4 at the plate.

OSU wasted no time in getting to Broncos starting pitcher Brian Stroud. Tim Wetzel walked to lead off the games and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Tyler Engle. After a groundout by Brad Hallberg, Brian DeLucia singled to right to drive in Wetzel. DeLucia then went to third on a single by Streng and scored on a perfectly-placed and executed double steal to put the Bucks up 2-0 after the first inning.

OSU extended the lead to 4-0 in the second inning. Ryan Cypret singled to lead off the inning and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Joe Ciamacco before Greg Solomon drilled a 1-0 pitch to the wall in center for an RBI triple. Wetzel came to the plate and scorched a ground ball up the middle. WMU shortstop Patrick Duncan was playing in and made a diving stop but his throw home was too late to get Solomon as the Buckeyes scored another run.

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.
