Brandon Davis delivered the game-winning RBI as the Hoyas topped GW this afternoon at Shirley Povich Field, 5-4.
March 27, 2007
Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University baseball team won their third-straight home game on Tuesday afternoon, 5-4, over George Washington. The Hoyas' resiliency showed in the bottom of the eighth inning, as they were able to push across what would be the game-winning run.
After dropping two nail-biters this past weekend, the Hoyas didn't get down on themselves after letting a two-run lead slip away. Instead, senior Derek deGrijs (Nashville, Tenn./Goodpasture) led-off the inning with a walk to get on base. Junior Matthew Bouchard (East Greenwich, R.I./Bishop Hendricken) followed that with a basehit to center that put runners on first and third with no one out. Junior Matt Harrigan (Syracuse, N.Y./Christian Brothers Academy) would then walk to load the bases full of Blue and Gray. Finally, a simple groundball turned into a run-scoring fielder's choice by senior Brandon Davis (Poway, Calif./The Bishop's School) gave GU the 5-4 lead.
Georgetown was able to get on the board in the first inning thanks to a shaky start from George Washington starter Jimmy Duggan. Duggan got the first out of the game but then proceeded to hit or walk six of the next seven batters. Duggan's control problems resulted in a 3-0 Georgetown lead and the bases full of Hoyas for new pitcher Fazian Choudry. Choudry was able to retire the next two batters, but the damage had been done and GW had lost their starter before the first inning came to a close.
On the other hand, GU freshman starter Alex Meyer (Pompton Plains, N.J./Don Bosco Prep) got the call his team and delivered with six solid innings of work. He only allowed one earned run while scattering seven hits. Senior Mark Dutmers (Sarasota, Fla./Riverview) threw a perfect 1 1/3 innings in relief to earn his first win of the season, while junior Daniel Kennedy (West Orange, N.J./Regis) threw a scoreless ninth to earn his sixth save of the season
George Washington quickly cut the lead to 3-2 in the top half of the second and the scoring stayed silent until the fourth. Freshman Derek DiGuglielmo (Dobbs Ferry, N.Y./Dobbs Ferry) led off with a perfectly executed bunt single down the third-base line and proceeded to steal second. That was followed by a single off the bat of senior Mark McLaughlin (Walnut Creek, Calif./De La Salle) that put runners on the corners. On an attempted steal by McLaughlin, the throw went over the head of the second basemen and was cut off in the shallow outfield grass by the GW shortstop. Seeing this development, DiGuglielmo alertly headed home on the play and put the Hoyas ahead, 4-2.
George Washington came back to tie the game, 4-4, by scoring a run in the sixth and another in the seventh off of freshman reliever Cary Piligian (Troy, Mich./Detroit Jesuit). In the two innings where GW scored, Georgetown committed three of their five errors on the day.
The Hoyas will play again at Shirley Povich Field tomorrow, Wednesday, March 28, at 3 p.m. against UMBC.
