ARLINGTON, Va. – The Georgetown baseball team scored five runs in the first four innings en route to a 6-2 win over D.C.-rival George Washington on Tuesday afternoon. The game was played at the Colonials’ Barcroft Field in Arlington, Va.
In a game labeled as a “staff day,” the Hoyas (12-13) used six different pitchers. Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) started and went three scoreless innings, giving up just four singles and striking out one to pick up the victory. Max Allen (Highland Park, Ill./Highland Park) and Joseph Bialkowski (Raleigh, N.C./Needham B. Broughton) each threw a scoreless inning and Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) threw two scoreless frames.
Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) led the offense with two hits, two RBI and two runs scored. Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) also had two hits, both off the right field wall, and two RBI.
Georgetown wasted no time getting on the board in the top of the first. Busch walked to lead things off. Then, on consecutive pitches, moved to second on a failed pickoff attempt and to third on a wild pitch. He scored on a ground out by Collins.
The Hoyas scored two more runs in the second to extend their lead to 3-0. After two quick outs, they loaded the bases on a single by Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's School), a walk to Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./St. Mary’s) and hit-by-pitch by Evan Ryan (Omaha, Neb./Creighton Prep). Busch singled through the left side to score both Venditti and Webber.
The Blue & Gray plated two more runs in the fourth. Busch again led off, laying down a perfect bunt for a single. He stole second and, after a walk to Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic), scored when Collins hit a ball to the wall in right field. Collins was held to a single as the runners had to wait to make sure the ball was not caught. With runners on the corners, Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) hit a sacrifice fly to left to score Camporini.
The Colonials (7-17) got a run off of Nick Leonard (Washington, D.C./Maret) in the bottom of the sixth on a bloop double down the left field line and a two-out single. Anderson made a nice play to get the Hoyas out of further trouble, leaning into the first-base dugout to make a catch on a foul ball and end the inning.
Collins doubled off the right field wall to lead off the top of the ninth. He moved to third on a fly out by Anderson to deep center and scored on a wild pitch.
GW added a run in the ninth following a leadoff triple that got past a diving Hall in center field.
The Hoyas open BIG EAST play this weekend with a three-game series against Xavier at Shirley Povich Field. The series opener on Friday will begin at 3 p.m. while Saturday will start at 1 p.m. and Sunday’s series finale will begin at noon.
On Saturday, the Hoyas, in partnership with the St. Baldrick's Foundation, will shave their heads following their game with the Musketeers. The Georgetown University Grilling Society (GUGS) will be at the game, serving food and the Blue & Gray will honor local kids who are fighting childhood cancer. The team has already raised over $36,000 for St. Baldrick's.

Notes – Collins’ RBI in the first was his fourth RBI in a row, all in the past two games, without the benefit of a hit… Busch turned three 6-3 double plays at shortstop, including one in the seventh where he beat the runner who was already attempting to steal.
