Friday's baseball game between Youngstown State and UIC has been suspended with the Penguins holding a 6-1 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning. The game will resume at 11 a.m. on Saturday, and game two of the series will follow shortly after.
The Penguins scored the game's first five runs, and YSU and UIC both scored in the sixth before the game was suspended due to rain with two outs in the bottom of the inning.
The Penguins scored twice in the first when Lorenzo Arcuri and Alex Larivee both singled and scored on an error. Billy Salem then singled and scored on Kyle Benyo's two-out single in the third to put the Penguins up 3-0.
The top of the order came through again in the fifth as the Penguins increased their lead to 5-0. Larivee hit a one-out triple to center, and Salem followed with a single up the middle past a drawn-in infield. Salem advanced to third on Andrew Kendrick's single and scored on a wild pitch.
UIC's run came on back-to-back two-out doubles in the sixth, and Trey Bridis walked and scored in the sixth before the delay.
