OMAHA, Neb. - The Omaha Mavericks closed out their final game at Tal Anderson Field this year with an offensive barrage as they blew out Penn State 16-1 in seven innings for their fourth win of the year against Power 5 opponents.

Omaha is now just three games under .500 at 19-22. Meanwhile, the Nittany Lions lose four in a row and fall to 24-19. The Mavericks end their home slate with a 14-7 record.

Innings 1-4
After the Nittany Lions tagged Alex Potter for a run in the top of the first, it was all Mavericks for the rest of the game. Omaha put up a four spot in the bottom of the first as the first six batters all reached safely. Haiden Hunt and Mike Boeve led off the inning with a couple of singles and a double steal to get to second and third where they were promptly driven in by Brennen Bales.

The next inning, Devin Hurdle made it 5-1 with a booming shot past the flagpole in left. The Mavericks would then get another four runs in the third thanks to a big inning from the Lechnir brothers. Drew Lechnir, who drove in a run in the first, led off with a triple off the top of the wall for his first of the season. An Eduardo Rosario double would bring Lechnir home for his second RBI of the day, before a towering three-run shot from Zach Lechnir blew the game wide open as Omaha went up 9-1.

Omaha then took a 10-1 lead in the bottom of the fourth on a sac fly from Rosario for his third RBI of the night.

Innings 5-7
Meanwhile, Potter settled in nicely after the first, tossing a 1-2-3 second before working around a double in each of the next two innings to keep Penn State off the board. In his final inning of the day, the Nittany Lions managed to load the bases in the fifth, only for Potter to snag a line drive at the mound and make the easy flip to first to get out of the inning unscathed.

The Mavericks bats erupted yet again in the bottom of the fifth as they added six more runs on a pair of three-run homers from Cam Frederick and Haiden Hunt, putting the Mavericks up 16-1 and all but guaranteeing a seven-inning mercy rule victory.
