York, Pa. - The Penn State Harrisburg men's baseball team allowed an eight run third inning to occur and the game got way out of hand from that point on; in their Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) game against York College on Sunday March 23rd.
The Blue and White baseball team just can't seem to find its identity so far this season. They pitch well, the offense does not; they hit well, the defense does not. Unfortunately for Harrisburg, the York Spartans did not allow them do anything well. Things started off as you would hope for any descent baseball game with both teams getting a run in the first inning. No runs were scored in the second, and then a disastrous third inning occurred where York scored eight runs to take a 9-1 lead.
From there, things just got ugly. The Spartans would go on to score five runs in the fourth and another three runs in the fifth and sixth inning. In total York put together 21 runs on the visiting Lions. Starting Pitcher Tom Chaney (Lancaster, Pa. / Lampeter-Strasburg) pitched the most innings giving up nine runs in three innings, with five pitchers sharing the mound and a piece of the total score. Although, pitching is important, it is not everything. Harrisburg allowed 13 earned runs in total as mistakes accounted for the additional eight runs.
