Penn beats Duke in extras
Freshman Tommy Courtney singled down the right field line to drive in Josh Hood with the game-winning run to lift Penn over No. 22 Duke on Tuesday at Durham Bulls Athletic Park, 7-6.

The win snapped a three-game skid for the Quakers.

Senior Matt O'Neill finished 2-for-5 with a run scored an RBI for Penn.

Hood opened the 10th with a single to right before advancing to second on a successful sacrifice bunt by Craig Larsen. Courtney then slugged a 1-2 pitch to the right side enabling Hood to score.

The Quakers' bullpen combined to toss seven scoreless innings with senior right-hander Grant Guillory hurling four while surrendering just one hit. He walked two and struck out a pair.

Freshman right-hander Seth Devries collected the win, tossing two scoreless to end the contest. He found himself in some trouble with a walk and a single in the 11th but induced a double-play to end the threat.

Trailing 6-3 entering the sixth, the Quakers scored three runs over the next two frames to even the contest with a single by O'Neil delivering the equalizer.

The Quakers are back in action on Wednesday to face Duke with first pitch set for 4 PM.
