PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – The Georgetown baseball team got the tying run in scoring position in the ninth inning, but full just short in a 6-4 defeat at the hands of Western Michigan on Saturday. The game was the Hoyas first at the Snowbird Classic.
Matt Smith (Cranberry Twp, Pa./Seneca Valley) went a season-high 6.1 innings, giving up six runs, four earned. Evan Ryan (Omaha, Neb./Creighton Prep) had a career-high three hits and Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area), Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) and Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) all had two base knocks. Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) pitched 1.2 innings of relief, recording on strikeout. The Hoyas outhit the Broncos 11-8.
Trailing 6-3 entering the ninth, Georgetown (3-7) scored a run and had the bases loaded but could not get the tying run home. Ryan started the rally attempt with a one out single, his third of the game. After Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Bridge ) grounded out to second, advancing Ryan to second. After a throwing error by the pitcher put Ryan on third, Busch hit an RBI single to left to pull Georgetown to within 6-4. Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's) followed with a single down the left field line, advancing Busch to third. Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) was hit by a pitch to load the bases and put the tying run in scoring position, but Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's School) struck out to end the game.
Georgetown jumped on the board early, scoring twice in the top of the first. With one out, Webber was hit by a pitch, Collins singled to center and Venditti walked to load the bases. Anderson singled to right to score Webber and followed with a fielder’s choice ground out to score Collins.
On the mound, Smith cruised through the first few innings. He needed just seven pitches to get through the first inning and 36 to get through three, facing one batter over the minimum.
However, Smith ran into a bit of trouble in the fifth when Western Michigan (7-7) scored four runs on four hits with two outs.
The Hoyas got a run back in the top of the sixth. With one out, Anderson doubled down the left field line and Carter walked. Camporini singled to load the bases and Ryan singled through the left side to plate Anderson.
Western Michigan scored a pair of unearned runs in the bottom of the seventh to extend its lead to 6-3.
The Hoyas are right back in action on Sunday with a 3 p.m. matchup against South Dakota State. Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) will take the hill for the Blue & Gray.
Notes… Busch extended his hitting streak to seven games with a bunt single in WHAT inning.
