Georgetown Rallies Past Davidson, 8-4
Feb. 25, 2013
WASHINGTON - The Georgetown bullpen held Davidson scoreless over the final six innings as the Hoya hitters were able to erase a three-run deficit and take an 8-4 victory over the Wildcats in non-conference baseball action Sunday afternoon at Wilson Field.
Georgetown evens its record at 2-2 with the win.
Davidson (4-2) led 4-1 after the third inning, but Georgetown (2-2) scored a run each in the fourth and fifth innings, and then scored three runs in the seventh inning for a 6-4 lead.
Pinch-hitter Nick Collins entered the game with two outs and the bases loaded in the seventh, and hit a single to left center to drive in two runs, and then back-to-back walks resulted in another Hoya run, with freshman Curtiss Pomeroy getting an RBI. Georgetown added a run each in the eighth and ninth innings on singles from Steve Anderson and Eric Webber for the final margin.
All of Davidson's scoring took place in the third inning.
Second baseman Danny Poplawski led Georgetown offensively reaching base in all five plate appearances by going 4-for-4 and getting hit by a pitch, while also tallying one RBI and two runs. Catcher Eric Webber and centerfielder Justin Leeson both went 3-for-6, with Webber driving in one run, as the Hoyas pounded out 18 hits to Davidson's eight.
RHP Will Brown (1-0) earned the win, allowing just one hit and striking out one in 1.2 innings of work. He was one of four Hoya relievers to hold Davidson scoreless. RHP Charles Steinman (1) was another, as he was perfect in the final two innings and struck out three for the save.
Georgetown plays its home opener on Wednesday, Feb. 27 against George Mason.
