2012 Big Ten Baseball Tournament: Penn State Falls To Nebraska, 12-3

Facing the Nebraska Cornhuskers (35-22) in the second round of the Big Ten Baseball Tournament, Penn State (29-27) gave up 18 hits in a 12-3 loss, concluding their season.

Junior Steven Hill took the hill for the Nittany Lions and got off to a fast start, tossing three scoreless innings. But then things went south, as he surrendered one run in the top of the fourth inning and three runs in the fifth before being replaced by reliever Cody Lewis, who would allow three earned runs of his own.

At the plate, Penn State batters would struggle as well. Despite 10 hits, the Nittany Lions plated only three runs.

Though they finished the season with a winning record for the second consecutive season, a berth in the NCAA Tournament appears unlikely and this should end their 2012 season.
