Cincinnati blanks Penguin baseball


Cincinnati had 14 hits and had 11 more runners reach base in a 13-0 shutout of the Youngstown State baseball team in a rain-shortened, seven inning contest on Saturday at Marge Schott Stadium.

The Bearcats scored twice in the first without recording a hit, and they scored three runs with two outs in the third. Cincinnati then scored three times in the fourth and blew the game open with five runs in the fifth.

Jonathan Crist, Phil Lipari and Drew Dosch all had singles for YSU, which went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position.

“We allowed the leadoff runner to reach in six out of the seven innings, and we just didn’t throw a lot of strikes today,” YSU coach Rich Pasquale said. “We were behind in counts, and that allowed their hitters to tee off. We need to execute on the mound.”

T.J. Jones and Braden Kline each had two hits and drove in three runs for Cincinnati. Jones hit a two-out, two-run double in the third that put Cincinnati up 5-0, and Kline’s two-run double in the fourth made the score 8-0.

Cincinnati starter Dan Jensen threw six scoreless innings, allowing just two hits while walking three. Dan Glozer threw the seventh for the Bearcats. The pair combined for four strikeouts.

Freshman reliever Nic Manuppelli threw 22/3 scoreless innings, surrendering two hits and four walks while striking out two. Cincinnati had the bases loaded off him with two outs in the seventh when the game was called.

YSU’s Phil Klein allowed six earned runs on eight hits and three walks in 31/3 innings. He left with the Penguins down 6-0, and two more runs were charged to him when Kline doubled for UC. Blake Aquadro allowed five runs in two-thirds of a inning.
