In the final home games of the season, the Penn State York men's baseball team swept a doubleheader against visiting Penn State Worthington Scranton on Tuesday afternoon.
The local Lions won Game 1, 2-0, and Game 2, 6-0.
With the wins, York improved to 9-8 overall and 9-7 in the Penn State University Athletic Conference. Sitting in sixth place with four conference games left on the regular-season schedule, the local Lions still have an outside chance to finish in the top four of the conference standings and secure a spot in the four-team PSUAC Tournament, which is held at Medlar Field in State College.
In the Game 1 win Tuesday over Worthington Scranton (1-14 overall, 1-13 PSUAC), York pitcher Mark Fagnani (Delone Catholic grad) threw a seven-inning shutout, allowing just two hits while striking out five and walking one. He threw 63 of his 90 pitches for strikes. York scored its two runs on an error and an RBI double from Dallastown grad Dillon Ketterman.
In Game 2, which went just five innings, PSY pitcher Kyler Jelonek (Central York grad) tossed five scoreless, allowing four hits with four strikeouts and three walks. York totaled eight hits in the win, with Fagnani (three-run home run) and Dallastown grad Austin Quinones (2-for-2, RBI, run scored) leading the way.
York next travels to Penn State Hazleton for a doubleheader Wednesday. PSY's last six regular-season games are all on the road.
