ARLINGTON, Va. – In cold, raining conditions, the Georgetown baseball team took a 7-3 lead into the ninth inning against George Washington before holding on for a 7-6 victory on Wednesday afternoon. The game was moved to the Colonials’ home field, Barcroft Park, in Arlington, Va. due to unplayable field conditions at Shirley Povich Field following Monday’s winter storm.
Nick Leonard (Washington, D.C./Maret) picked up his first career win, pitching five innings giving up two runs, just one earned. He struck out one. Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) had three hits, his second consecutive three-hit game and third in his past seven games. AC Carter (Winter Park, Fla./Orangewood Christian) had two hits, including his first home run of the season, two RBI and three runs scored. Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Bridge) had three RBI and Evan Ryan (Omaha, Neb./Creighton Prep) added an RBI and was one base three times. Joseph Bialkowski (Raleigh, N.C./Needham B. Broughton) pitched three innings of relief, giving up just one run and striking out one.
George Washington scored the game’s first run in the top of the second. The Colonials got a pair of leadoff singles and, after a walk, scored a run on a fielder’s choice ground out. Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's) prevented any further damage by throwing a runner out at the plate on a ground ball to third.
The Hoyas responded right away in the bottom half of the inning. They loaded the bases on three walks and, with two outs, Kuzbel drew the fourth walk of the inning to score Carter and tie the score.
The Hoyas broke things open with five runs in the third. With one out, Collins singled and Carter launched a two-run home run deep down the left field line. Later in the inning, with two outs and Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) on third and Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) on second, Ryan hit an infield single to third, allowing Anderson to cross the plate. Ryan promptly stole to get into scoring position and Kuzbel delivered a two-run single to extend Georgetown’s lead to 6-1.
The Colonials scored an unearned run in the fifth and added a run in the eighth, but again, the Hoyas prevented further damage as Camporini threw out a runner at second base.
Georgetown added a crucial insurance run in the bottom of the eighth. Carter led off the inning with a walk and advanced to second on a ground out. With two outs, Justin Abbott (Raleigh, N.C./Millbrook), who had come in as a defensive replacement earlier in the game, singled him in to make the score 7-3.
The Colonials scored three runs, just one earned, off of Max Allen (Highland Park, Ill./Highland Park) in the ninth. Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) came in and got a strikeout for the final out to record his second save.
The Hoyas are scheduled to play three games against Towson this weekend, with Friday and Saturday being played at Shirley Povich Field. Friday’s start time is 3 p.m. while Saturday will begin at 1 p.m.
