Ohio State baseball goes wild Sunday, takes series at West Virginia

While Game 1 of the series didn’t go Ohio State baseball’s way against host West Virginia, the rest of the games sure did.

Friday night saw the Buckeyes lose 5-2, but on Saturday they woke up during the sixth inning. Trailing 4-3 heading into the top of the frame, Ohio State scored two runs to take the lead, then another two the next inning to get the win 7-4.

Sunday was all about the Buckeyes offense, as they scored 26 runs to take the series and get their season record above .500 at 10-8. The first, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth all saw Ohio State score multiple runs in those innings.

The biggest two were the sixth and eighth, where they scored right and seven runs respectively. Third baseman Tyler Pettorini led the charge with five RBIs, while outfielder Isaac Cadena, shortstop Henry Kaczmar, catcher Matthew Graveline, second baseman Joseph Mershon, outfielder Mitchell Okuley, designated hitter Nick Giamarusti, and pinch hitter Hank Thomas all had at least two RBI on the day.

Ohio State finally gets its home portion of the schedule started when it hosts Georgetown this weekend for a three-game series in Bill Davis Stadium.
