March 21, 2013
WASHINGTON - Georgetown pounded out 17 runs on 16 hits and held on for a 17-15 win over the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore at Hawks Stadium in Princess Anne, Md. Wednesday afternoon.
It was the seventh-straight win for the Hoyas, who improved to 14-6 overall, while UMES falls to 4-17 overall.
Six different Georgetown plays had at least two hits and eight had at least one, with freshman Curtiss Pomeroy (Shrewsbury, Mass./Saint John's) and senior third baseman Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart) leading the way with three hits apiece. Eight different players scored at least one run, with Pomeroy, senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) and sophomore shortstop Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) scoring three times apiece.
Junior right fielder Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's) and Busch each drove in four runs. Venditti hit his fourth home run of the season in a five-run seventh inning with a three-run shot to left field in an inning in which Georgetown extended its lead to 17-9.
The Hoyas took a 3-0 lead after the top of the second inning. In the first, Pomeroy hit a leadoff single, moved to second on a passed ball, stole third and scored on a wild pitch. In the second, Pomeroy hit a sacrifice fly, scoring freshman catcher Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines), who had walked and moved to second on a single from senior left fielder Paul Bello (Towaca, N.J./Delbarton) and to third on a ground out. A single from Matern brought home Bello, making it 3-0.
After a scoreless third, the Hoyas tied the game in the fourth with three runs, then added four more runs in the fifth, two more in the sixth and five more in the seventh. After Busch was hit by a pitch and Pomeroy singled in the third, Leeson hit a two-run single and he eventually scored on a wild pitch to tie the game.
The Hoyas broke a 6-all tie in the fifth with four runs, starting with a double to right-center from Pomeroy breaking the tie and scoring Busch, who was hit by a pitch. Matern and Venditti each hit RBI singles in the inning as GU extended its lead to 10-6.
Despite UMES cutting the lead to 10-9 with three runs off Basso, the Hoyas added two more runs in the sixth, with a two-run home run from Busch making it 12-9.
In the seventh, Matern singled and Leeson was hit by a pitch before Venditti deposited a pitch to left for a three-run home run to extend the lead to 15-9. Busch closed out the Georgetown scoring with a two-run double down the left field line as the lead grew to 17-9. UMES added a single run in the seventh and five more in the ninth to close to within 17-15, but senior pitcher Charles Steinman (Rockville Centre, N.Y./Chaminade) recorded the final two outs.
The Hoyas open BIG EAST Conference play this weekend with a three-game series at home against Connecticut. The first game of the series is slated for Friday, March 22, with first pitch at Shirley Povich Field in Bethesda, Md. slated for 3 p.m.
