ARLINGTON, Va. – Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) had six hits in five RBI to lead the Georgetown baseball team (2-3) to a doubleheader sweep over visiting Hartford (0-2) 4-3 and 6-3. The games were played at Barcroft Field in Arlington, Va.
Hall, who had entered the game as a pinch runner in the ninth and scored the game-tying run, led off the 13th with an eight-pitch walk
Anderson led the Hoyas’ offense with four hits in the first game. Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area), Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's) and Collins all had a pair of hits as well. As a team, the Hoyas had 14 hits, matching their total from their first three games. David Ellingson (The Woodlands, Texas/The Woodlands College Park) and Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) put in a combined 10-2/3 innings of relief. Ellingson threw 6-2/3 innings, giving up just three hits and one unearned run while striking out five. Davis went four innings, giving up just two hits and registering three strikeouts.
The Hoyas trailed 3-0 going into the eighth. They loaded the bases with one out before AC Carter (Winter Park, Fla./Orangewood Christian) fouled off five two-strike pitches before singling through the left side on the 10th pitch of the at-bat to score Collins. Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Bridge) followed with a sacrifice fly to left to plate Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's School).
In the ninth, Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) led off with a single and Hall entered to pinch run. A Busch single moved him to second before Webber sacrificed both runners up a base with a bunt. Collins grounded to the second baseman, who threw home to try and catch Hall. Hall slid in however, as the catcher could not hold onto the ball, to tie the score and send the game into extra innings.
Hartford jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning off of Georgetown starter Jack Vander Linden (Dallas, Texas/Episcopal School of Dallas). Vander Linden struggled with his control early, giving up four walks and two runs in the opening frame.
The Hawks tacked on an unearned run in the third, but the Hoyas’ bullpen shut them down from there.
Matt Smith (Cranberry Twp, Pa./Seneca Valley) struck out a career-high seven batters, while giving up just one run, over six innings. The six innings pitched is the longest outing of a Georgetown starter this season. Anderson had two more hits, including a mammoth grand slam to right field in the second inning, and five RBI. Freshman Chris Giordano (Orlando, Fla./Lake Highland) pitched the final three innings, giving up two runs on four hits, to pick up the save.
The Hoyas quickly put up a pair of runs on the board in the first inning. Busch and Kuzbel both reached to start the inning before Anderson drove in Busch with a single up the middle and Carter scored Kuzbel with a single to shallow left.
The offensive surge continued in the second as Webber led off with a walk and Busch and Kuzbel each followed with consecutive bunt singles to load the bases with nobody out. After Collins grounded into a fielder’s choice, forcing out Webber at home, Anderson cleared the bases with his first home run of the season, easily clearing the high wall in right field.
The two teams wrap up their three-game series on Saturday with a 7 p.m. game. The game will again be played at Barcroft Field in Arlington. Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) is scheduled to start on the mound for the Hoyas.
