Feb. 18, 2013
WASHINGTON - Heading south for a baseball season opener typically is a good chance to get away to a warmer climate and get a chance to play a few games. The Georgetown baseball team was able to get its first game completed on Friday, but saw its second game end after six innings on Saturday afternoon because of snow. The Hoyas lost the game, trailing 7-4 after six innings to UNC Asheville.
The Hoyas, who lost 6-5 in 10 innings to Wofford on Friday, fall to 0-2 this season.
Georgetown had taken a 1-0 lead in the second inning when freshman catcher Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) hit an RBI triple to left-center, scoring senior left fielder Corbin Blakey (Alpharetta, Ga./Centennial), who had reached on a fielder's choice.
UNC-Asheville responded with three runs (two earned) off sophomore starter Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) in the top of the third inning to take a 3-1 lead.
Trailing 3-1 in the third, the Hoyas responded with three runs to take a 4-3 lead. Junior first baseman Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland) had the big hit of the inning, driving in two runs Sophomore third baseman Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) reached base on a one-out error, moved to third on a double from senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./The Overlake School) and the bases were loaded after senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) was hit by a pitch. Anderson followed with a double to center, scoring two runs to tie the game. After a walk to junior Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's School) loaded the bases again, Blakey reached on a fielder's choice, scoring Leeson to give GU a 4-3 lead.
The Hoyas gave up three unearned runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to take a 6-4 lead. Hollenbeck took the loss for the Hoyas, throwing 5.0 innings while allowing all six runs, three of them earned, on four hits with four walks and five strikeouts.
Georgetown is back in action on Friday, Feb. 22, playing in the Davidson Tournament in North Carolina. The Hoyas will play three games in the tournament, starting with host Davidson.
