Georgetown lost to UConn, 3-2.
March 24, 2013
WASHINGTON - Georgetown held a pair of leads in the early innings, but Connecticut broke a 2-all tie in the fifth inning and held on to beat the Hoyas, 3-2, in the series finale of a BIG EAST baseball series at Shirley Povich Field in Bethesda, Md. Sunday afternoon.
The three-game series with the Huskies was originally scheduled for Storrs, Conn., but inclement weather in the area forced the series to be moved to Georgetown.
After winning the first game of the series, 5-2, the Hoyas lost the final two games of the series and fall to 15-8 overall and 1-2 in the BIG EAST, while Connecticut improves to 13-7 overall and 2-1 in league play.
The Huskies broke a 2-all tie in the fifth when LJ Mazzilli hit a leadoff single off Georgetown sophomore reliever Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca), stole second, moved to third on a balk and scored on a wild pitch. Brown walked the next two batters, but freshman catcher Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./St. Mary's) threw out a runner and freshman reliever Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) induced a double play to end the threat.
The Hoyas had runners on base in each of the next four innings, but could not get the tying run across the plate. Senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./Overlake) was on second base after a walk and a ground out in the sixth and in the seventh, sophomore shortstop Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning, but was left stranded at second.
In the eighth, Poplawski hit a two-out double and did not get further and in the ninth, Busch drew a one-out walk, stole second and was on third after a ground out, but the Huskies closed out the game for the win.
Georgetown had taken a 1-0 lead in the first when Webber reached on an error, moved to second on a bunt, to third on a fly out and scored on a single from junior right fielder Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's).
The Huskies tied the game in the bottom of the second with a run off GU starter Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham), but the Hoyas broke the tie in the third. Webber hit a one-out single, moved to second on a single from senior third baseman Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart) and scored on a sacrifice fly from senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester).
Hollenbeck went 3.2 innings, giving up two runs on three hits with seven walks and no strikeouts. Brown took the loss, throwing 0.2 innings, giving up one run on one hit with two walks.
Georgetown stats a three-game series with South Florida on Thursday, March 28. First pitch at Shirley Povich Field is slated for 3 p.m.
