Penn State posted its first win of 2007 by beating Centenary, 7-6, Sunday. Scott Gaffney, normally the Nittany Lions' SS, started for the first times since Little League and led PSU to the win. OF Rick Marlin went 3 for 4 with a homerun. 3B Mike Deese also collected three hits and two RBI.
The Nittany Lions, unfortunately, dropped the bottom half of their Saturday doubleheader. Kansas State prevailed in that affair, 4-1. Cory Wine, Matt Cavagnaro and Deese each had a pair of hits in the loss. Chase Bayuk, KSU's starter, fanned six in six innings of work allowing the only PSU tally.
Coach Wine's squad is off until March 2 when they travel to Chapel Hill to take on North Carolina in a three game set.
