Brown provided the only scoring of the game in the bottom of the third, plating two runs on a double and two singles to take a 2-0 lead.

The Hoyas threatened in the fifth and sixth innings, putting two runners on in both frames, but could not come up with the clutch hit.

Game Two: Brown 11, Georgetown 10
Brown scored four runs in the bottom of the ninth to defeat the Hoyas, 11-10, and complete the doubleheader sweep.

Jack Cushing (Flower Mound, Texas/Marcus) struck out seven in 5.2 innings on the mound, while allowing seven runs, six earned, on nine hits and two walks.

DeRenzi again paced the offense, registering three hits and scoring three runs while also stealing a base. Stevens finished with three RBI, while Alex Bernauer (Sunnyvale, Calif./Fremont) and Ryan Weisenberg (Parkland, Fla./San Ramon Valley) each drove in two.

Georgetown got the bats going right away in the top of the first. Jake Bernstein (Frederick, Md./St. John's College HS) walked and moved to second on a bunt single by DeRenzi. With two outs and the bases loaded, following a Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Ridge) walk, Bernauer singled up the middle to score both Bernstein and DeRenzi and give GU an early 2-0 lead.

The lead ballooned to 5-0 in the top of the second as Stevens cleared the bases with a three-run double into the right-center field gap, scoring John Simourian (Andover, Mass./Phillips Andover), DeRenzi and Zach Racusin (Morristown, N.J./Salisbury School/Marist) who had reached via two walks and an error, respectively.

Brown cut the lead to 5-2, on three-straight doubles in the bottom of the third, but Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) launched a solo home run to lead off the top of the fourth to move Georgetown's lead back to four, 6-2.

The Bears came back with three runs in the bottom of the fourth and two more in the bottom of the sixth to take a 7-6 lead.

The Hoyas rallied immediately in the top of the seventh, scoring twice to take an 8-7 lead. DeRenzi and Racusin led off with consecutive singles and moved into scoring position on a ground out. Kuzbel lifted his nation-leading seventh sacrifice fly of the season into left to score DeRenzi and allow Racusin to move to third. After Bernauer was hit by a pitch, Ryan Davis (Danville, Calif./San Ramon Valley) singled into left field to score Racusin and give GU a one-run advantage.

Georgetown tacked on a pair of runs in the top of the ninth. Weisenberg, who had come on defensively in the seventh inning, singled in Kuzbel and Bernauer to give the Hoyas a 10-7 lead.

Brown scored four runs in the ninth off of Jimmy Swad (Washington, D.C./St. Albans) and Brent Killam (Nokomis, Fla./Venice), on two singles and five walks, to walk off, 11-10.

The two teams will wrap up their three-game series on Sunday, with first pitch scheduled for 1 p.m. Kevin Superko (Wellesley, Mass./Wellesley/Phillips Andover) will take the mound for the Blue & Gray. Live stats will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
