March 18, 2011
BETHESDA, Md. - Bethesda, Md. - Senior first baseman Dan Capeless (Centerville, Mass./Boston College H.S.) hit a bases loaded single in the bottom of the tenth inning to drive in the game-winning run, lifting the Georgetown University baseball team (12-7) over Princeton (3-8) on Friday afternoon at Shirley Povich Field.
The Hoyas, who tied the score at seven in the bottom of the ninth when Andy Lentz's sacrifice fly to deep centerfield scored Max Friedman (Wilmington, Del./Tower Hill School), loaded the bases in the final frame before Capeless singled through the left side of the infield to plate Mike Garza (San Antonio, Texas/Douglas MacArthur) for the game-winner.
Georgetown's fourth consecutive victory was highlighted by Sean Lamont (Houston, Texas/Bellaire) becoming the all-time home run leader in Georgetown baseball history. Lamont delivered a towering shot over the centerfield wall in the bottom of the fifth inning for his 36th career home run and third of the season.
Garza went 3-for-5, driving in two runs and scoring twice, while Andy Lentz (Farmington Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) went 2-for-4 with two RBI's. Neal Dennison (Houston, Texas/Lamar) earned the victory retiring one-hitter in the top of the tenth with the bases loaded.
Georgetown scored first in the bottom of the second inning when Garza singled, allowing Dan Godefroi to score putting GU in front, 1-0. Princeton would storm back in the top of the fourth inning, as Sean Harrington would tie the score with a single to left field, scoring Mike Ford. Alec Keller and Nate Baird each drove in runs in the Tigers three-run fourth to give them a 3-1 lead.
Steve Anderson led off the bottom of the fourth inning with a double to left field and moved to third on Dan Godefroi's single. Anderson then scored on a single from Lentz to cut the lead to one run, 3-2. Though Princeton would add two more runs in the top of the fifth inning to open a 5-2 lead.
The Hoyas closed the gap in the bottom of the fifth on Lamont's solo home run, a shot that moved him to the top of the GU all-time home runs list. An inning later they regained the lead on three runs, as Garza would drive in his second and Justin Leeson scored on an errant pick-off attempt. Garza would himself score to put the Blue & Gray in front 6-5.
In the top of the seventh inning, Princeton regained the lead behind a two-run home run from Sam Mulroy. The Tigers took a 7-6 lead into the bottom of the ninth inning, but Lentz's ninth inning sacrifice fly would tie the score to send GU to its first extra-innings game of the season.
Princeton loaded the bases against the Hoyas in the top of the tenth, before Dennison came on in relief to force a ground ball out sending the game to the bottom of the inning still tied. GU loaded the bases in the bottom of the tenth as Garza drew a walk, Rand Ravnaas singled and Sean Lamont reached on a bunt single. Capeless followed lining Matt Grabowski's pitch through the left side of the infield to score the game-winner, giving the Hoyas their fourth consecutive win.
