Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University baseball team earned their first win of the 2009 season with a 10-4 win at Norfolk St. on Wednesday afternoon. Senior Sean Baumann (Tampa, Fla./Freedom) went two-for-five with a run and four RBI and sophomore Erick Fernandez (Hialeah, Fla./Hialeah) went two-for-four with three runs scored.
Trailing 2-0 in the third, the Hoyas put the first six batters of the inning on base en route to taking a 4-2 lead. The key hits were delivered by Dan Godefroi (Andover, Mass./Andover), Dan Capeless (Centerville, Mass./Boston College H.S.) and Baumann. Godefroi put GU on the board with a single down the right field line for his first RBI of the season. Capeless hit a grounder to first that was then thrown away which allowed Tommy Lee (Mahopac, N.Y./Mahopac) to score and tie the game. Baumann closed the scoring with a two-run single to left.
Capeless came through again in the next inning with a two-run single to center that scored Lee and Godefroi. The sophomore first baseman is hitting .333 through the first four games of the season.
In the sixth, freshman Rand Ravnaas (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints Episcopal) recorded his first RBI as a Hoya with a two-run triple to right center that scored Baumann and Fernandez. It was also the first triple of the season for a Hoya batter.
Baumann capped his productive afternoon with a two-run double into the right-center gap during the top of the seventh to push the Hoyas to double digits. Georgetown hit double-digits 11 times last season, going 9-2 in those contests.
Will Harris (Winter Park, Fla./Trinity Prep) started for the Hoyas and allowed two earned runs over three innings, breaking his scoreless streak to start the season. Tommy Isaacs (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Bolles) earned the win (1-0) with three innings of shutout ball. Cary Piligian (Troy, Mich./Detroit Jesuit), in his first action of 2009, allowed no earned runs over two innings and Billy Concannon (Dallas, Texas/St. Mark's School) closed it out for the Blue & Gray.
The Hoyas now travel to Davidson, N.C. where they will play their first game of a weekend tournament against Cincinnati at 2 p.m. on Friday
