UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – For the second time this weekend, the Penn State baseball team won in walk-off fashion as the Nittany Lions earned an 11-10 win over Rutgers on Senior Day Sunday at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. Penn State rallied to score four runs in the bottom of the ninth with Joe Jaconski’s single scoring Michael DiMartini for the winning run. Penn State improved to 23-22 overall and 9-12 in Big Ten play. Rutgers dropped to 27-23.
In the bottom of the ninth, Bobby Marsh started the inning by drilling a fly ball over the wall in straight-away center. Two pitches later, Grant Norris lifted a fly ball over the fence in right. The back-to-back jacks cut the deficit to 9-8. Bryce Molinaro lined a single to right, followed by a single to left by Matt Maloney. With runners on first and second, Tayven Kelley dropped down a sac bunt to move Molinaro and DiMartini, a pinch-runner, up 90 feet. A wild pitch bounced away from the catcher to allow Molinaro to score and tie the game at 9-9. Two batters later, Jaconski lined a single inside the left field line as DiMartini sprinted home.
