Falcons down PSU-Brandywine In Series Opener. 10-6

Media, PA – The Fisher Falcons erased an early five run deficit and scored six runs in the top of the 9th innings to earn a 10-6 come-from-behind victory of the Penn State – Brandywine Nittany Lions on Saturday afternoon at the Maple Zone Baseball Complex in Aston, Pennsylvania.

Adam Lucey (3-for-5) and Devin Perry (3-for-6) powered Fisher's 10 run, 14 hit offensive outburst that gave the Falcons their 5th win of the season.   Sophomore Cody Mercier (2-for-6) was the only other Falcon with a multi-hit effort despite nine Falcons collecting at least one base knock on the afternoon.

Senior Brian Rosa got the start for the Falcons but lasted just 3.0 innings. The right-hander allowed five runs, all earned, on five hits and two walks.  Rosa did manage one strikeout on the afternoon.

However, the Falcons were solid in relief with Scott Bigelow, Matthew Trotta and Bryan DeJesus coming to shut down Penn State's offensive attack.  Trotta earned the victory for the Falcons after pitched 4.0 innings in relief.  The lefty allowed an earned run on three hits and one walk but managed to strike down four Nittany Lion batters.

Penn State and Fisher will concluded their three game series with a Sunday doubleheader scheduled for 10:00am at the Maple Zone Complex.
