Georgetown lost to Michigan, 5-2, on Sunday.
March 3, 2013
The Hoyas fall to 3-4 overall, while Michigan improves to 5-5.
Georgetown starter, junior lefty Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham), gave up four runs on eight hits over 5.0 innings, with one walk and three strikeouts, as he took the loss, falling to 0-2 this season.
Hollenbeck gave up a single run in the first and then two more in the second as the Wolverines took a 3-0 lead.
The Hoyas, however, pulled to within a run with two in the top of the fourth inning. Runners were on first and second with none out after a single from freshman catcher Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's) and a walk to senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester). Junior right fielder Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's School) followed with a double to left to score Webber and make it 3-1. A groundout from senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./The Overlake School) pulled GU to within a run, 3-2.
The Wolverines added another run in the fourth to extend their lead to 4-2 and scored one more in the seventh, plating a run against sophomore Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca). Brown threw 2.0 innings and gave up one run on two hits with two walks. He was relieved by freshman Gino Basso (Glen Allen, Va./Godwin), who threw a scoreless eighth inning.
Georgetown had chances in two of the final three innings. In the seventh, Venditti and freshman Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) singled by senior left fielder Paul Bello (Towaca, N.J./Delbarton) grounded into a double play to end the threat. In the eighth, freshman shortstop Curtiss Pomeroy (Shrewsbury, Mass./Saint John's) and Webber singled to put runners on first and second, but Michigan pitcher Ben Ballantine retired the final two batters to end the threat.
The Blue & Gray went down in order in the ninth.
Pomeroy, Webber and Venditti each had two hits to lead the Georgetown offense.
Georgetown continues play in the Snowbird Classic on Monday, March 4, playing Valparaiso. First pitch is slated for 11 a.m.
