BETHESDA, Md. - A bases loaded wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth inning allowed freshman catcher Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's) to cross the plate with the game-winning run, helping the Georgetown University baseball team (10-8) complete a, 5-4, comeback victory over Princeton in game one of a Friday doubleheader at Shirley Povich Field.
Webber went 3-for-5 and scored two runs, including the game-winner, while senior 3B Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart) went 2-for-4 with one run and a two-run single in the bottom of the ninth inning to help the Hoyas rally back into the game.
Sophomore RHP Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) earned his third win of the season, tossing 1.2 innings in relief, allowing one run, on one hit.
Georgetown got on the scoreboard first, in the bottom of the third inning, as a throwing error on a double play attempt allowed Webber to score, giving GU a 1-0 lead.
The Tigers added one run in the top of the sixth inning on Justin Albert's sacrifice fly, tying the score at one run apiece. Princeton added two runs in the top of the seventh inning on Alec Keller's two run double and Blake Thomsen tacked on another run with a sacrifice fly in the top of the eighth inning to take a 4-1 lead.
GU cut into the lead in the bottom of the eighth inning, as Danny Poplawski's sacrifice fly allowed Matern to score, bringing the Hoyas within two runs, at 4-2.
The Blue & Gray rallied in the bottom of the ninth inning. Christian Venditti drew a lead-off walk and Curtiss Pomeroy reached on an infield single, moving Venditti to second base. Webber followed with a well-placed bunt single to load the bases for the first time in the inning. Matern singled to deep left, allowing two runs to score, tying the game at four runs apiece. Justin Leeson followed with a single to reload the bases, before a wild pitch with Steve Anderson at the plate allowed Webber to score the game-winning run, lifting GU to a, 5-4 victory over Princeton.
