Pedro Pages drove in a run with his first professional triple in the opening inning, but the State College Spikes were held in check by the West Virginia Black Bears in the late innings in a 4-1 defeat on Wednesday night at Monongalia County Ballpark. Pages, the Cardinals' 2019 sixth-round draft choice out of Florida Atlantic, launched a pitch into the right-center field gap that rolled all the way along the artificial turf to the wall for a three-bagger that scored Moises Castillo. Pages has now recorded six of his 17 pro hits at West Virginia.

Storm Medlar Field on Saturday night

"See them aliens," chow down on 51-cent dogs and get in with $5.10 bleacher seats

July 16, 2019 2:33 PM ET

The 50th anniversary of the moon landing is coming up soon, but it's Area 51 that thousands are interested in storming on September 20. With that in mind, the State College Spikes will give fans a chance to get some practice by storming Medlar Field at Lubrano Park's own "Area 51" on Saturday night. Like the infamously secret Air Force base in Nevada, the Spikes home game will feature out-of-this-world experiences that have never been seen before, like 51-cent hot dogs. Unlike the real Area 51, though, the Spikes are making it easier to storm the ballpark with outfield bleacher seats available for just $5.10.
