WASHINGTON - Georgetown scored seven runs in the fifth inning and freshman pitcher Neal Dennison (Houston, Texas/Lamar) allowed two runs over four innings of relief as the Hoyas held on to beat Penn, 13-11, at the Rollins College Baseball Week in Winter Haven, Fla.
The Hoyas have won back-to-back games and improve to 6-4 overall, while Penn falls to 1-3.
Trailing 6-4 going into the top of the fifth inning, Georgetown scored seven runs on six hits and sent 11 batters to the plate, taking an 11-6 lead. The Quakers came back with three runs in the bottom of the inning, but the Hoyas scored two more times in the seventh to seal the win.
In the fifth, junior catcher Erick Fernandez (Hialeah, Fla./Hialeah) started things with a solo home run to right-center. A single from junior third baseman Sean Lamont (Houston, Texas/Bellaire) and a walk to first baseman Dan Capeless (Centreville, Mass./Boston College H.S.) put runners on first and second and freshman Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) singled and moved to second on an error, allowing Lamont to come in with the tying run. Capeless scored on a passed ball and a double from senior second baseman Chip Malt (Boston, Mass./Buckingham, Browne & Nichols) brought in Leeson, giving the Hoyas an 8-6 lead.
After a single from sophomore center fielder Andy Lentz (Farmington, Mich./Brother Rice) and a walk to sophomore left fielder Rand Ravnaas (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints Episcopal) loaded the bases, junior Dan Godefroi (Andover, Mass./Andover) brought in two runs with a single and Ravnaas scored on a wild pitch, pushing the lead to 11-6.
Penn would respond in the bottom of the inning with three runs off starter sophomore Will Harris (Winter Park, Fla./Trinity Prep), but the Hoyas scored two runs in the top of the seventh, increasing their lead to 13-6. Malt started the inning with a single and scored on a triple to right from Ravnaas, who would come home with Georgetown's final run on a sacrifice fly to right from Fernandez.
Dennison, meanwhile, entered the game in relief of Harris in the sixth. He gave up a two-run triple in the eighth as Penn cut the lead to 13-11 and worked four full innings, allowing two runs on five hits with two walks and three strikeouts as he earned his first save of the season. Harris threw 5.0 innings, giving up nine runs (seven earned) on 13 hits, with one walk and three strikeouts.
Every batter in the Georgetown lineup had at least one hit as the Hoyas scored 13 runs on 15 hits. Malt finished the day 3-for-5 with a home run, double and a single, three runs scored and two RBI, while senior shortstop Tom Elliott (Blue Bell, Pa./St. Joseph's Prep) went 3-for-5 with three singles and two RBI. Fernandez hit a home run and a single and drove in three runs, while Ravnaas hit a triple, double, walked four times, scored three runs and drove in two.
Georgetown plays next on Wednesday, March 10 against Maine at 6 p.m.
