Penn State baseball falls to No. 21 Duke with late-game collapse

Duke’s defeat of the Nittany Lions in the rubber match hands Penn State its first series loss of the young season.

After allowing 10 runs in the first two games of the series, ineffective relief pitching continued to hinder Penn State.

Center fielder Kennie Taylor finished the job, blasting a grand slam to give the Blue Devils a 4-2 lead.

The junior smashed one over the left field wall to give Penn State the lead in its first at-bat of the contest.

Penn State added to its lead in the sixth with an RBI triple from first baseman Parker Hendershot.

“We got to learn how to make some things happen and take advantage of some pitches that we did have to hit, especially when you’re playing a good team.”
