Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University baseball team had their three-game home winning streak snapped on Wednesday afternoon, 9-2, by the University of Maryland-Baltimore County. The Hoyas (10-15) could not overcome their own mistakes on this day, as they committed six errors which led to five unearned runs for the Retrievers (6-10).

Georgetown was able to get the early lead in the contest when they went ahead in the third inning, 1-0. Freshman Joe Silvestri (Floral Park, N.Y./Archbishop Molloy) led-off with a single and senior Mark McLaughlin (Walnut Creek, Calif./De La Salle) moved him to second with a single of his own. The next batter to follow was senior Derek deGrijs (Nashville, Tenn./Goodpasture) who laced a single down the left field line and scored Silvestri.

UMBC took the lead in the fourth with three runs of their own. After tying the game at 1-1, Steve Russo smashed a ball to center that McLaughlin dove for, but could not reach. The end result of the play was a two-run triple and a 3-1 lead for UMBC. Despite the effort by McLaughlin, the damage had been done and the play served as a foreshadowing of what was to come. Despite a good effort defensively, the Hoyas struggled to make even routine plays at time, and wound up with six errors on the day.

Georgetown's only other run came in the sixth inning when junior Matthew Bouchard (East Greenwich, R.I./Bishop Hendricken) walked, and then stole second and third base. He was knocked home on a RBI groundout by sophomore Sean Baumann (Tampa, Fla./Freedom).

After throwing well last week and earning the win against Mount St. Mary's, freshman Tim Adleman (Raleigh, N.C./Wakefield) struggled. He wound up suffering the loss and saw his record fall to 2-2 on the season. Freshman Jack Bender (Cranford, N.J./Cranford) and junior Grady McConnell combined to throw three scoreless innings of one-hit ball in relief.
