Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University baseball team struck out 17 times in a 6-1 loss at George Mason on Wednesday afternoon. The Patriots have now taken five straight and eight of the past nine against the Hoyas. The two teams will square-off again in two weeks, April 15, from Shirley Povich Field at 7 p.m.
Trailing 2-0 in the fifth, Dan Godefroi (Andover, Mass./Andover) hit a solo bomb off the top of the scoreboard in right-center to start the inning and cut the deficit in half. The home run was the third of the season for the sophomore.
Tommy Isaacs (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Bolles) earned the start for GU and allowed four runs over six innings. Billy Concannon (Dallas, Texas/St. Mark's School) and Jared Cohen (Phoenixville, Pa./The Haverford School) came on in relief before Bobby Kirby (Bel Air, Md./Loyola Blakefield) threw a scoreless ninth for the Hoyas.
