Sean Lamont hit two three-run home runs in the Hoyas 15-3 victory over George Washington
March 18, 2009
Bethesda, Md. - Tom Elliott (Blue Bell, Pa./St. Joseph's Prep) and Sean Lamont (Houston, Texas/Bellaire) each homered during a seven-run fourth inning , as the Georgetown University baseball team (6-11) defeated George Washington (9-11) 15-3 on Wednesday afternoon at Shirley Povich Field in Bethesda, Md. Elliott and Lamont each homered twice in the victory.
The Hoyas saw three different pitchers and brought 11 batters to the plate against the Colonials in the fourth inning, as Elliott's three-run shot over the centerfield wall put the Hoyas in the lead and Lamont's three-run shot to left provided insurance. For Lamont, it was his first of two home runs on the afternoon, with the sophomore third basemen going 2-for-4 with two home runs and six RBI's on the afternoon. Elliott went 3-for-4 with three RBI's after adding a solo home run in the seventh inning.
Bobby Kirby (Bel Air, Md./Loyola Blakefield) earned the victory, tossing 2.0 scoreless innings, allowing two hits and striking out one. Pablo Vinent, Cary Piligian, Jared Cohen and Jimmy Saris each tossed an inning of scoreless relief to hold down GW.
The Colonials took the lead in the top of the first inning, as Tommy Isaacs walked the first batter of the game then hit Chris Holland and Sean Rockey to load the bases with no outs. Isaacs would issue a four-ball walk to put GW on the board. Two more Colonials' runs would score on a ground out and a sacrifice fly as the Hoyas found themselves behind 3-0 without allowing a hit after one inning.
The Hoyas loaded the bases in the bottom of the second inning, as Sean Baumann doubled down the left field line, Dan Capeless singled and Kelly Muir drew a walk. GW's Bobby Lucas got a force out at the plate and strike out to end the threat and keep GU scoreless.
In the bottom of the third inning, Tommy Lee doubled off the left field wall to lead off the frame. After stealing third base, he crossed the plate on Erick Fernandez's sacrifice fly, making the score 3-1.
In the bottom of the fourth inning Georgetown exploded for seven runs. The Hoyas drew back-to-back walks before Kelly Muir (South Pasadena, Calif./Loyola) drove in a run with a double. A GW error proved costly, allowing Greg Pustizzi to reach base, setting up Elliott's first home run of the day, a three run shot. Later in the inning Lamont hit a shot over the left field wall to give the Hoyas an insurmountable 8-3 lead.
Georgetown added four more runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, as Chip Malt (Boston, Mass./Buckinham Browne & Nichols) singled to score Elliott. Lamont later hit his second three-run home run of the afternoon to give GU a 12-3 lead. Elliott hit a solo shot to lead off the seventh inning and Alex Johnson (Dallas, Texas/Episcopal School of Dallas) and Dan Godefroi (Andover, Mass./Andover) each drove in runs, for the eventual 15-3 final score.
The Hoyas improve to 2-0 at home before travelling to Louisville, Ky. this weekend to open conference play with the Louisville Cardinals. They begin their series with UL on Friday, March 20 at 3 p.m.
