For the second night in a row, the State College Spikes had a late-inning comeback that just fell short. The Spikes really didn’t deserve to be in this game, though. Outhit 13-6, the Spikes were able to take advantage of 5 Mahoning Valley errors, including 4 by the second-baseman Lurvin Basabe.

Kyle McPherson struggled in 4.2 innings, giving up 10 hits and 6 runs (4 earned). He did strike out 6. Zach Foster pitched 3.1 nice innings in relief, giving up just 3 hits and 1 run. He walked 3 batters.

From the plate, David Rubinstein and Miguel Mendez were both 2-3, and they each scored a run.

The teams play game 2 of their 3 game series tonight at Mahoning Valley.
