      COLUMBUS, Ohio – Redshirt freshman left-handed pitcher Seth Lonsway was recognized by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association as National Pitcher of the Week, announced Tuesday afternoon. This is the second national award for Lonsway. He was recognized as a National Player of the Week on Monday by Collegiate Baseball.

      Lonsway fanned a career-high 14 in eight innings of work and allowed just one unearned on two hits and two walks to help the Buckeyes to a series sweep at Purdue last weekend in West Lafayette, Indiana. The Celina, Ohio native is the Big Ten strikeout leader with 110 this season. He became the first Buckeye pitcher to strike out at least 100 hitters in a single-season since Alex Wimmers in 2009. His 110 strikeouts currently ranks seventh in OSU history.

      Lonsway Awards (This Week):
      • NCBWA National Pitcher of the Week
      • Collegiate Baseball National Player of the Week
      • Third Team All-Big Ten
      • Big Ten All-Freshman

The contest will be televised on BTN and can also be heard on the radio on AM 1460 ESPN.

      Andrew Magno
      On playing top teams:

      We just played in front of 17,000 (fans) for a B1G Championship. We’ve played high caliber teams before. We played Oregon State a lot the past few years. You can’t hype it up, any team can be beat any day.

      Dominic Canzone
      On winning the B1G Championship:

      When you come to Ohio State, you want to win a championship. Dog piling at the end in Omaha has always been a dream. That dream came true but we have a lot more work to get back there.

      I don’t think we care who we play. If we play our game, we can compete with anybody in the country. We’re ready.

      Greg Beals
      On Ohio State baseball being back in spotlight:

      I like to think we are back. The last three out of four years we’ve been in the National Tournament. We’re doing it with young talent and club and the future is bright. The recruiting is going well. I’m excited about this weekend but I’m excited about our future as well.

      On assessing how he’s been able to develop Ohio State baseball:

      It’s not about me, it’s about developing a program and bringing the right people in. It’s about helping these young men develop and achieve their goals. It’s about representing an incredible athletic department at one of the best institutions in the country. I’m honored and privileged to lead this program and have the opportunity to coach these guys.

      Incredible end of the year run.

      “I don’t want to talk about today’s game, my comments will be relative to this group of guys and what they became this year,” head coach Greg Beals said. “Just really proud of how we responded when our backs were against the wall. That character and brotherhood was revealed these last few weeks. We are obviously disappointed with the result of today’s game and that hurts because we have a vision of taking the next step. We are in the national tournament in three out of the last four years. The next step is to get in to a super for a three-game series to see who goes to Omaha. We didn’t get that but there is so much to be proud of this season.”

      Junior Conner Pohl went 3-for-5 with a homer and two RBI. Sophomore Dillon Dingler was 3-for-5 with two runs scored and two doubles and senior Brady Cherry was 3-for-5 with a run scored and RBI. Pohl hit .462 (6-for-13) with three runs scored, double, two homer and three RBI in the Nashville Regional. Cherry batted .429 (6-for-14) with a homer and three RBI.

      Indiana State had its first six hitters reach base in the top of the first and jumped out to a 2-0 lead vs. OSU left-handed starting pitcher Griffan Smith. Singles by Jarrod Watkins and Roby Enriquez made it 2-0. Brady Cherry fielded a single in left and sent a laser into Dillon Dingler who easily applied the tag to record the first out. It was a big momentum swing in the inning as Smith then sent down two hitters on strikeouts to leave the bases loaded and limit the damage.

      It didn’t take long for the boys to rebound. Ohio State scored three times in the bottom of the first against right-handed starting pitcher Tyler Whitbread. With two outs on the board, the Buckeye bats strung three hits together to take a 3-2 lead. Dingler started it with a two-out, stand-up double. Cherry ripped a RBI single to left for the first run. Pohl then launched a 1-1 pitch over the wall in right for a two-run homer to give the Scarlet and Gray a 3-2 lead.

      The two-out lightning continued in the third on off the bat of Zach Dezenzo for a RBI single. The Sycamores answered in the fourth with one run on a solo homer by Joe Boyle to put their deficit to one run, 4-3. Ohio State had a chance to extend the lead in the fifth after a lead-off double by Dingler, but the Buckeye catcher was picked off second base to record the first out of the inning. The next two at-bats were singles, however, Whitbread retired two straight hitters to hang a zero on the board.

      Indiana State struck with four runs on four hits to regain the lead in the top of the sixth as five straight Sycamore hitters reached safely. Indiana State scored another run in the seventh. Canzone ended the inning with a double play when he sent a cannon into the plate to Dingler who got the tag down on the shoulder of Indiana State’s Boyle.

      Ohio State continued to battle at the dish and score one run on three hits in the bottom of the seventh to make it an 8-5 game. Brent Todys knocked a RBI single to score Cherry.

      After allowing two runs in the top, Smith sent down eight straight hitters. However, the OSU lefty ran into trouble in the sixth. The Sycamores scored four runs off four hits to end Smith’s day on the mound. He gave up seven runs on 10 hits with one walk and seven strikeouts in 5.1 innings of work. Right-handed reliever TJ Brock retired the final two outs of the top of the sixth. He gave up one run on one hit with one walk in one inning of relief. Right-handed reliever Thomas Waning tossed a scoreless inning of relief on two hits. Left-handed reliever Mitch Milheim worked 0.2 innings and gave up one run on two hits with one walk. Joe Gahm allowed no runs with one strikeout in the eighth.

    The B1G Tourney title prolly saved his ass but the program should be better than it is. Not asking for National Titles but man maybe a super regional (aka sweet 16) every couple years? UConn, ND, ttun, Oregon St are all Northern teams with much more success than we are seeing. Its not like Ohio is devoid of baseball talent. We arent even the top team (maybe top 3?) in our own state!

    Frank Oliver Howard (Hondo or Capital Punisher)
    Bats Right, Throws Right
    Height 6' 7", Weight 255 lb.
    School Ohio State University
    High School South High School (Columbus)
    Debut September 10, 1958
    Final Game September 30, 1973
    Born August 8, 1936 in Columbus, OH USA

    Frank Howard was the winner of the 1960 National League Rookie of the Year Award with the Los Angeles Dodgers before a mid-career trade saw him become the best and most popular player for the expansion Washington Senators. His four-year home run duel with perennial champ Harmon Killebrew between 1967 and 1970 earned him the nickname The Capital Punisher. At 6'7" and 255 lbs., he was arguably the biggest player of his era. A former basketball player at Ohio State University, he spent most of his big league career as an outfielder. He went to Ohio State at the same time as Galen Cisco, but Cisco was a football player in addition to baseball, whereas Frank played basketball. In the minors for 1958, 1959 and a month of 1960, he hit copious home runs, never slugging below .550. He became a major league regular in 1960, hitting 23 home runs in 117 games for the Dodgers. With the Dodgers, he slugged .700 in the 1963 World Series which the team won in a four-game sweep over the New York Yankees.

    An all-or-nothing slugger with prodigious power but limited speed, he was generally in the mold of contemporaries Harmon Killebrew and Willie Stargell, but his career falls well short of those two Hall of Famers. Between 1967 and 1970 though, Howard found his long ball stroke and engaged in a shoot-out with Killebrew for the American League home run lead, Killebrew winning in 1967 with 44, Howard with 44 in 1968, Killebrew again with 49 in 1969 (besting Howard's career best 48), and Howard again with 44 in 1970. Few in his era could hit a ball farther. Three upper deck seats at RFK Stadium are painted white where mammoth Howard homers landed, in Section 536, Row 5, Seat 17, Section 538, Row 4, Seat 19, and in Section 542, Row 3, Seat 3. During his career he hit a total of 17 round-trippers of Hall of Famers Whitey Ford, Bob Gibson, Catfish Hunter, Juan Marichal, Jim Palmer, Gaylord Perry, Robin Roberts, Warren Spahn and Hoyt Wilhelm. He led the American League in RBI once and was a four-time All-Star. While not remembered as hitting for average, Howard hit .296 three separate times in his career, impressive numbers when batting titles were being won as low as Carl Yastrzemski's .301 in 1968.

    He finished in the top ten in the league in batting average four separate times. His combination of a big power and a respectable batting average during baseball's second deadball era gave him a notable career OPS+ of 142, tied for #62 on the all-time list a single tick behind contemporaries Killebrew and Hall of Famer Eddie Mathews. As of mid-2016 that's tied with modern slugger Mike Piazza, and a tick ahead of Alex Rodriguez and future Cooperstowner Chipper Jones. Howard's complete lack of speed, propensity to strike out at alarming levels when it was still frowned upon, and balkiness on defense all worked against enshrinement, which explains his poor showing in his sole appearance on the BBWAA Hall of Fame ballot. After being released by the Detroit Tigers in 1973 Howard attempted to continue his playing career with the Taiheiyo Club Lions in 1974 but injured his knee just before the season opener. He retired after only one game. After his playing career, he became a minor league manager, and eventually was given a chance to manage in the majors, but both of the teams he led, the San Diego Padres in 1981 and the New York Mets in 1983, were in a rebuilding mode. He always did have a reputation of being able to relate to young players and help them improve, and indeed, his two teams both made it to the World Series within three years of departure, on the strength of their young talent. He served as a coach for many years (including the Milwaukee Brewers from 1977-1980 and 1985-1986) and it was always a sight to see the 6'7" Frank Howard limp, on bad knees, to the first base coach's box. Based on the "similarity scores" method, the most similar players to Howard are Rocky Colavito, Joe Adcock, and Norm Cash.

    OSU's Dominic Canzone taken by D'Backs in 8th round of MLB Draft

    Canzone was widely projected as a fourth or fifth-round pick, so he certainly slid more than expected. For example, ranked him as the No. 144 prospect available entering the draft. The slot value signing bonus for the No. 144 pick is $379,000. However, the slot signing bonus for the No. 242 pick is $170,300. Still a good chunk of change, just not what the OSU star anticipated.

    Canzone could decide to return to Ohio State for his senior season in 2020, but that seems highly unlikely.
