PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – The Georgetown baseball bounced back from a tough Saturday with a decisive 10-1 victory over Iowa on Sunday afternoon. The game was called after five innings due to a travel curfew.
David Ellingson (The Woodlands, Texas/The Woodlands College Park) started and threw three innings. He struck out four while giving up just one unearned run. Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) and Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) led the offense with three hits and two RBI apiece and five other Hoyas had two hits. Evan Ryan (Omaha, Neb./Creighton Prep) also added three RBI. Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City), Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's School), AC Carter (Winter Park, Fla./Orangewood Christian) and Anderson all scored two runs and Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Bridge) added had two RBIs. Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) pitched the final two innings, striking out four.
After struggling for offense the past couple of days, Georgetown (7-10) broke out for five runs in the first inning on Sunday. Hall led off with a single to right center, his third hit in the past two games, and advanced to second on a passed ball. Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's) moved him to third, directing a ground out to the right side. Collins knocked in Hall with an infield single. Carter doubled down the right field line to put runners at second and third before Anderson blooped a single to right to score Collins. Venditti followed with a shallow pop up to right field that got into the wind and eluded the Iowa second baseman, allowing Carter to score and Anderson to move to second. With two outs, Ryan delivered a two-run single as both Anderson and Venditti crossed the plate.
Hall led off the second inning as well and remained hot, lacing a triple down the left field line. With one out, Collins hit a rocket past a drawn-in infield to score Hall.
Venditti and Camporini led off the third inning with singles. Ryan squared around to sacrifice, but beat out the throw to first for a single to load the bases. Kuzbel grounded out to second to score Venditti.
In the fifth, Webber reached on a throwing error by the shortstop. With one out, both Collins and Anderson singled through the right side, the latter pushing Webber across the plate.
In the fourth, Carter and Anderson both hit one out singles and Venditti walked to load the bases. With two outs, Ryan walked and Kuzbel was hit by a pitch to load the bases.
Iowa (11-5) scored an unearned run in the bottom of the second.
