WASHINGTON - Freshman pitcher Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) threw seven innings in a solid start for the Georgetown baseball team, but Yale scored a run in the bottom of the eighth inning en route to a 3-2 win over the Hoyas at Chain of Lakes Park in Winter Haven, Fla. Wednesday afternoon.
The loss was the third-straight, one in extra innings and two of them by one run, as Georgetown falls to 8-5 overall, while Yale improves to 1-4 overall.
The Hoyas trailed 2-1 in the top of the eighth inning, but put two runners on base after a leadoff single from junior Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./The Overlake School) and a walk to junior Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart). A sacrifice bunt from junior left fielder Paul Bello (Towaca, N.J./Delbarton) moved the runners up and a groundout from senior second baseman Andy Lentz (Farmington Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) tied the game. With Matern on third and two out, however, the Hoyas could not plate the go-ahead run.
In the bottom of the inning, redshirt junior Billy Cosmopulos (Seekonk, Mass./Moses Brown [R.I.]) walked two of the first three batters he faced before making way for redshirt senior Tommy Isaacs (Ponte Vedre Beach, Fla./Bolles). Isaacs induced an infield fly for the second out of the inning, but gave up a single to through the left side to Joe Lubanski, bringing in Cam Squires with the go-ahead run.
Kevin Fortunato retired Georgetown in order in the ninth to seal the win.
Brown threw 7.0 innings, giving up two runs on eight hits with one walk and three strikeouts in a no-decision.
The Hoyas had taken a 1-0 lead in the first when redshirt junior shortstop Mike Garza (San Antonio, Texas/Douglas MacArthur) hit a double to right, moved to third on an error and scored when senior right fielder Rand Ravnaas (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints' Episcopal) grounded out.
Yale had runners on base in each of the first innings against Brown, but he continually worked out of jam, with a pitcher-to-catcher-to-first base double play ending a bases loaded situation in the third inning. The Bulldogs scored single runs in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively, to take a 2-1 lead.
Georgetown, meanwhile, had runners in scoring position in the first, second fourth and seventh innings, but could not get runners across. In the seventh, the Hoyas had the bases loaded with one out, but had a runner thrown out at home.
The Hoyas are off on Thursday, but return to play again on Friday, March 9, with Yale on deck again. Junior right-hander Neal Dennison (Houston, Texas/Lamar) is slated to start for Georgetown.
