BALTIMORE – Towson scored all of its runs with two outs, defeating the Georgetown baseball team 8-4 on Sunday afternoon. The game was played at Towson’s John B. Schuerholz Park.
Starting pitcher Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) went 3.2 innings, giving up five runs on six hits and three walks. Only two of his runs were earned. Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) was on base twice with a single and a walk and scored two runs. He also pitched a scoreless seventh inning. Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) had a double, RBI and scored a run. Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) had two hits and two RBI.
Georgetown (9-12) opened the scoring in the top of the second inning. Anderson cranked a one-out double into the left-centerfield gap and moved up to third on a ground out by Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian’s School). Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Bridge) beat out an infield single to the shortstop to allow Anderson to score and give the Hoyas a 1-0 lead.
Towson (10-8) came right back with three unearned runs in the bottom half of the second. After a leadoff double and throwing error by Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) put runners at the corners with no outs, Brown induced two quick pop ups to nearly get out of the jam. However, two wild pitches, sandwiched around a RBI single, allowed three runs to score.
The Tigers added a run in the third on a pair of two-out singles with a stolen base mixed in. They did the same in the fourth on a walk, stolen base and single.
The Hoyas cut into the lead with a run in the fourth. A single by Hall, walk to Busch and bunt single by Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) loaded the bases with nobody out. Collins smoked a hard grounder to first that the Towson first baseman got a glove on. The ball deflected to the second baseman who threw to the covering pitcher at first to retire Collins as Hall crossed the plate.
Towson added three more runs off of Chris Giordano (Orlando, Fla./Lake Highland) in the sixth to bring its lead to 8-2.
Georgetown battled back with a pair of runs in the top of the seventh. Hall led off with a walk and, with one out, moved to third on a single by Camporini. Collins drove in Hall with a single down the right field line. After Carter walked, Anderson flew out to deep left, allowing Camporini to scamper home.
The Hoyas return to Baltimore on Wednesday for a midweek matchup at Coppin State. First pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m. They will then travel to Grambling State for a three-game series next weeken.
Notes – The Hoyas turned two double plays on Sunday, giving them six in the three-game series. They have now turned 12 on the season, including 11 in the past 11 games.
