Matt Smith went a career-high eight innings for his second straight win.
March 29, 2014
GRAMBLING, La. – After more than 24 hours of delays, Georgetown and Grambling State were finally able to get their three-game series started Saturday night. The Hoyas used a four-run eighth inning to break away for a 6-1 victory over the host Tigers at Willis Ellis Field at R.W.E. Jones Park.
Friday night’s series opener was originally postponed due to inclement weather and rescheduled for a doubleheader on Saturday. However, the field was unplayable for most of the day and the teams could only play on game on Saturday night. They will conclude the series with a doubleheader on Sunday.
Matt Smith (Cranberry Twp, Pa./Seneca Valley), after pitching a career-high 7.2 innings last week, topped that performance with eight innings on Saturday, allowing just one run on six hits while striking out eight. He improved to 3-3 on the season and lowered his ERA to 3.12. Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) and Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) each had three hits out of the top two spots in the Hoyas’ lineup. Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) had two hits and three RBI, all coming on a three-run triple.
Georgetown (10-12) jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead just three batters into the game. Busch walked and advanced to third on a single by Hall. He scored on a sacrifice fly by Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines).
Grambling State (6-19) tied the score with a run in the third. It stayed that way until the eighth.
Singles by Busch and Hall and a walk to Collins loaded the bases with one out. Anderson drove in all three, clearing the bases with a triple and breaking the deadlock. One out later, Anderson crossed the plate on a wild pitch to give the Hoyas a 5-1 lead.
They added a run in the ninth on an RBI single by Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Bridge, scoring Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's School), who had walked.
Sunday’s doubleheader will start at 1 p.m. ET. Freshman David Ellingson (The Woodlands, Texas/The Woodlands College Park) will start the first game while the second starter is yet to be determined.
