Steve Anderson had an RBI and run scored for the Hoyas on Sunday
Feb. 16, 2014
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Trailing 3-0 going into the ninth inning, the Georgetown baseball team scored two runs, and had the tying and go-ahead runs in scoring position, but fell just short in a 3-2 defeat to Wake Forest on Sunday evening.
Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's School) started the ninth with a double down the right field line. Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) followed with a sharp single past the first baseman to score Venditti. AC Carter (Winter Park, Fla./Orangewood, Christian) was hit in the back on the first pitch, putting the tying run on base. With one out, pinch-hitter Curtiss Pomeroy (Shrewsbury, Mass./Saint John's/Phillips Andover) fouled off three 0-2 pitches before hitting an infield single to the hold between short and third to load the bases. After Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) popped out, a wild pitch scored Anderson and moved the Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City), who had pinch-run for Carter, to third. With a full count however, Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) struck out swinging for the third out.
Busch had a pair of doubles to lead the Hoyas’ offense. Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) struck out six over three innings of relief work.
Georgetown’s starting pitcher, Matt Smith (Cranberry Twp, Pa./Seneca Valley), danced in and out of trouble in five innings and was helped out by some solid defense behind him.
After walking the first two batters in the bottom of the first, Smith got the next three batters to fly out, including a nice sliding catch by Evan Ryan (Omaha, Neb./Creighton Prep) in center field.
In the fourth inning, two two-out walks loaded the bases for the Demon Deacons, but Smith bounced back with one of his two strikeouts to end the frame. Anderson also made a big play defensively at first base, sliding to his right to snag a hard-hit grounder.
Freshman second baseman Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Bridge) made a nice running catch into shallow right field, battling a swirling wind, in the fifth inning.
Meanwhile, the Hoyas could not come up with an early clutch two-out hit, stranding runners in scoring position in each of the first four innings.
Georgetown’s best opportunity came in the third inning when Busch led off with a ground rule double to right center. He advanced to third on a balk with one out, but was stranded there when Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines ) lined out sharply to the shortstop and Venditti struck out.
Wake Forest got on the board with a one-out home run to left field in the bottom of the third.
The Demon Deacons added a pair of runs off of Hollenbeck in the bottom of the sixth. Busch made a diving stop at shortstop to prevent a potential third run. Hollenbeck ended any further damage with a strikeout.
Georgetown closes out its opening weekend on Monday morning at 10 a.m. against Towson (2-0). Junior Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) is scheduled to start on the mound for the Hoyas.
