The local Lions won the first game, 6-5, but were then shut out in the second game, 4-0.

In the second game, York starter Alex Peters tossed a complete game, allowing all four runs, only two earned, on eight hits, with five walks and four strikeouts. Brady Lefever went 2 for 3, collecting two of the team’s five hits.

The split improved PSY to 4-14 on the year and 4-8 in Penn State University Athletic Conference play.
