PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Freshman David Ellingson (The Woodlands, Texas/The Woodlands College Park) was outstanding in his first career start, shutting down the South Dakota St. offense for six innings while the Georgetown baseball team pounded out 14 hits, en route to a 9-4 win on Tuesday afternoon.
Ellingson went six innings, yielding just one run on four hits while striking out five. Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Bridge) had a triple and three RBI. AC Carter (Winter Park, Fla./Orangewood Christian), Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's) and Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic), who earlier in the day was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll, all had two hits and two RBI. The Hoyas tied a season-high with 14 hits.
Georgetown (5-7) pounced early on the South Dakota St. (8-8) starter, putting up a three-spot in the second inning. Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) and Carter led off with consecutive walks and Webber sacrificed them both up a base. Evan Ryan (Omaha, Neb./Creighton Prep) attempted a safety squeeze, but Anderson was thrown out at the plate. Kuzbel picked him up, however, with a triple to right center, just out of the reach of the diving center fielder, to score both Carter and Ryan. After Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) was hit by a pitch, Camporini delivered an RBI single to right to plate Kuzbel.
The Hoyas added a pair of runs the very next inning. Anderson again got things going with a one-out walk. Carter followed with a double to left, just missing clearing the wall by a few feet, to put runners at second and third. Webber singled to left to score Anderson and push Carter to third. Ryan was hit by a pitch to load the bases and Kuzbel, after falling behind 1-2, worked a run-scoring walk.
In the bottom of the fifth, Busch hit a two-out single that evaded the first baseman and extend his hitting streak to nine games. He promptly stole second and scored when Camporini singled up the middle to stretch the Hoyas lead to 6-0.
Leading 6-1 in the eighth, the Hoyas tacked on three more runs. Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines), pinch hitter Justin Abbott (Raleigh, N.C./Millbrook) and Anderson hit three consecutive singles to load the bases with nobody out. After Curtiss Pomeroy (Shrewsbury, Mass./Saint John's/Phillips Andover) struck out Webber single to right to score Collins. Anderson was caught off of second and was forced out. However, Webber caught the defense not paying attention and took second. Ryan followed with a double to deep left center to bring the Hoyas' lead to 9-1.
South Dakota St. scored a single run in the sixth and three runs, two earned, in the ninth.
Georgetown returns to action at the Snowbird Classic on Wednesday with the first of three games against Saint Joseph's. First pitch is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Nick Leonard (Washington, D.C./Maret) is scheduled to make his first career start for the Hoyas.
