Final Stats

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – The Georgetown baseball team scored five runs in the sixth inning and Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) threw five innings of scoreless relief as the Hoyas rallied from a 4-0 deficit for a 7-4 over South Dakota St. on Sunday afternoon at the Snowbird Classic. The victory snapped a four-game skid for Georgetown.

Hollenbeck struck out seven while giving up just four hits in his five innings. Starting pitcher Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) went four innings giving up four runs on nine hits, striking out three. Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) had three hits and two RBI and Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) added a triple and two runs scored.

Georgetown (4-7) fell behind early as South Dakota St. (8-7) scored three runs in the bottom of the first inning. Four of the first five batters singled and the Jackrabbits hit two RBI groundouts to second.

After 14 straight Georgetown batters were retired following a one-out single by Camporini in the first inning, the first six Hoyas reached base in the sixth inning, leading to five runs to erase a 4-0 deficit. Evan Ryan (Omaha, Neb./Creighton Prep) and Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Bridge) led off the inning with singles and advanced on two wild pitches, the second one scoring Ryan. After Busch walked, Camporini singled in Kuzbel and Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) singled to score Busch. With runners on second and third, Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's School) hit a grounder that the third baseman muffed, allowing Camporini to cross the plate. With two outs, AC Carter (Winter Park, Fla./Orangewood Christian) doubled to the wall in right center to plate Collins and complete the scoring.


 

 

The Hoyas added a single run in the eighth when Venditti led off with a walk and, after advancing to second on a wild pitch, scored on an RBI single by Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland). They added another insurance run in the ninth on a two-out triple to right-center by Busch and an RBI single to left by Camporini. The triple extended Busch’s hitting streak to eight games.

The two teams will meet up again on Tuesday after a day off on Monday. First pitch is scheduled for 2 p.m. David Ellingson (The Woodlands, Texas/The Woodlands College Park) is scheduled to make his first career start for the Hoyas.
