Pitching is a big part of baseball and that is why William Penn is having a successful season. The Statesman are coming off a four game sweep of Mount Saint Clare over the weekend, three of which were shutouts. Penn has already record 12 shutouts this season and that breaks the old mark of ten set back in 1993. Penn coach Mike Laird who says with his top two starters back he felt confident about the pitching staff coming into the season. Laird says the Statesmen have also played good defense to back up the pitching.
