Penn Baseball Splits Games with Crown Point in Doubleheader

On Saturday, Apr. 15 Penn Baseball split a doubleheader with Crown Point. The Kingsmen extended their winning streak to 3 games, after wins against Glenn and Lakeshore, then snapped it in the loss in the second game.

Penn’s Evan Tuesley hit a 3-run home run in the 6th inning of the first game, effectively sealing Crown Point’s fate. RJ Cromartie and Cooper Hums each hit doubles.

When Cromartie was asked how he felt about the team’s performance he said, “I think we played really well and came out super aggressive in game one. Game two I feel that we just got outplayed by Crown Point and they wanted it more than we did.”

The Kingsmen went on a 4-game losing slide after starting the season 2-0. Penn’s offense proceeded to struggle for the next 4 games, with the Kingsmen outscored by their opponents 8-4 through those 4 games. However, in the last 3 games, the Penn offense has caught fire, outscoring opponents 25-13 in just 3 games. 

Noah Langness is a fan of the Penn baseball team.

“They were red hot for the first 2 games, they really looked like the team that won [state] last year. Then suddenly they just kinda sputtered out you know? But now it feels like we’re back, even though we lost the second game,” Langness saud.

The Kingsmen continue their 2023 campaign at Mishawaka on Thursday, Apr. 20 and then with a doubleheader against Lake Central on Saturday, Apr. 22.
