Georgetown Drops Third Game of Series Opener to Davidson, 6-3

Feb. 19, 2007

Box Score

Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University baseball team dropped the third game of their 2007 opening series, 6-3, at Davidson on Monday afternoon. The Hoyas got their best pitching outing of the season to date, but their bats failed them when it mattered most.

Starter Jimmy Saris (Great Falls, Va./Langley), in his Georgetown debut, lasted seven innings and gave up four earned runs while striking out three batters. Saris lasted longer than any starter for the Hoyas so far this season, and threw 104 pitches, 72 of them being strikes. Senior Mark Dutmers (Sarasota, Fla./Riverview) pitched a scoreless eighth inning in relief of Saris.

However, the Georgetown bats failed to produce with runners in scoring position on this day. The Hoyas left 10 runners on base, eight in scoring position, and two 90 feet from home.

For the third straight game, the Hoyas got on the board first when Davidson catcher Doug Grunwald threw the ball away after GU's Brandon Davis (Poway, Calif./The Bishop's School) had struck out. This allowed Davis to reach base safely and junior shortstop Matthew Bouchard (East Greenwich, R.I./Bishop Hendricken) to cross the plate with the game's first run. It was the second throwing error of the inning for Grunwald, who earlier in the inning had thrown the ball away on a steal attempt by Bouchard that allowed him to get to third base on the play.

In the fourth inning, sophomore rightfielder Sean Baumann (Tampa, Fla./Freedom) continued his torrid start as he drilled his third homerun in as many games, a solo shot that cut the Davidson lead to 5-2.

Later in the inning, senior centerfielder Mark McLaughlin (Walnut Creek, Calif./De La Salle) delivered a RBI single to right field that scored junior third baseman Matthew Maranges (Miami, Fla./Belen Jesuit Prep), cutting the lead to 5-3. Maranges had reached on a double down the left field line two batters earlier. The Hoyas had a chance to tie the game in the same inning when Bouchard flew out to left field, ending the inning with two runners in scoring position.

 

 

After the fourth inning, the Hoyas only mustered two hits and left four runners on base, all in scoring position.

Georgetown opens the 2007 home slate against St. Joseph's this upcoming weekend. The Hoyas will play a doubleheader on Saturday, February 24 starting at noon and then a single game on Sunday, February 25 at 1 p.m.
