Georgetown lost to Iowa, 7-2, on Saturday.
March 10, 2013
Georgetown sophomore left-hander Matt Hollenbeck (Hatboro, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) gave up five unearned runs in the fourth inning and the Hoyas had runners in scoring position in four innings, but could not muster enough offense in a 7-2 loss to Iowa on Saturday afternoon at North Charlotte Park in Port Charlotte, Fla. at the Snowbird Classic.
Georgetown falls to 5-3 on its Florida trip with the win and is 7-6 overall.
Hollenbeck took the loss for the Hoyas, throwing 6.0 innings, giving up five runs, all unearned, on six hits with four walks and five strikeouts.
Iowa starter Matt Dermody allowed two runs and struck out six batters over eight innings to lead the Hawkeyes. Dermody held the Hoyas scoreless over the first seven innings.
Georgetown had chances to cut into the lead in the fourth and fifth innings, respectively, as the Blue & Gray put a runner on third base in both frames, but Dermody was able to work out of it.
In the fourth, senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) hit a leadoff single and moved to second when senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./The Overlake School) singled, but the Hoyas could not move the runners past third.
The Hoyas put two runners on base with none out again in the fifth when senior left fielder Corbin Blakey (Alpharetta, Ga./Centennial) reached on an error and senior third baseman Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart) was hit by a pitch but Dermody escaped damage with an inning-ending double play.
Iowa broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fourth by putting five two-out runs on the board. Junior Taylor Zeutenhorst drove in the Hawkeyes first two runs, hitting a single that plated sophomore Taylor Kaufman and junior Keith Brand. Iowa would then score runs in its next three at-bats, as Goodman, Mangler, and Yacinich notched three consecutive RBI singles.
Senior reliever Neal Dennison (Houston, Texas/Lamar) gave up two runs on three hits in the seventh inning as the lead grew to 7-0, while senior pitcher James Heine (Chapel Hill, N.C./East Chapel Hill) threw a scoreless eighth inning.
The Hoyas got on the board with a pair of runs in the top of the eighth inning. Poplawski hit an RBI single, scoring freshman catcher Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's) who had hit a leadoff single and moved to third when Leeson singled. Junior right fielder Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's) followed with a sacrifice fly to score Leeson.
Georgetown closes out its trip to Florida on Sunday, playing Central Michigan.
