WINTER HAVEN, Fla. - Albion College pounced on Penn State-Abington for six runs in the second and it added two more in the seventh to earn an 8-5 victory in spring break baseball action at Chain of Lakes Stadium.
Albion took advantage of two Abington errors in the second inning. Joe Turnbull drew a one-out walk and Stesiak and Justin Green followed with singles to load the bases. Spilko was credited with his RBI when Turnbull and Stesiak scored on a ground ball that was booted by the third baseman. Finney hit a two-run single later in the inning.
Abington scored twice in the third and fourth and once in the fifth to cut the lead to 6-5.
Finney drove in a RBI with a sacrifice fly in the seventh and Stesiak's double brought Logan Priebe around to score.
Pitchers David Kauff, Andrew Fabry and Patrick O'Brien did not allow an earned run in 5 1/3 innings of relief. Kauff got credit for the win, the first of his collegiate career, and O'Brien picked up his first save of the season.
Albion, winners of three in a row to improve to 4-2, is scheduled to take on Rensselaer at the Lake Myrtle Sports Complex in Auburndale tomorrow.
