Ohio State baseball starts the season off with a road series victory

||


All across the country, collegiate baseball got its start this past weekend and the Ohio State baseball team started off the year right with a road series victory.

Starting on Friday, they faced off against three different opponents in the Desert Invitational in Phoenix, Arizona. The Buckeyes lost the opener to Boston College 9-2, but rebounded quickly.

On Saturday Ohio State defeated Brigham Young 7-2 and then faced off against a future Big Ten opponent in USC on Sunday night on MLB.TV. The Buckeyes defeated the Trojans 5-2, finishing their opening weekend with a 2-1 record.

Offensively, it was Tyler Pettorini and Henry Kaczmar leading with way with 4 RBI each. On the mound, two of the Buckeyes starters, Colin Purcell and Gavin Bruni, each went five innings and allowed just one run.

The Buckeyes will stay out in the Phoenix-area for the remainder of the week as they return to the diamond on Tuesday to face Grand Canyon University.  They’ll take on Arizona State in their weekend series before heading back to Columbus.
