April 5, 2007
Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University baseball team lost two nail-biters on the road this afternoon to Seton Hall at Owen T. Carroll Field in South Orange, N.J. In the BIG EAST doubleheader, the Hoyas (12-19, 2-6 BE) lost game one, 4-3, in 12 innings and then dropped game two to the Pirates (11-14, 3-5 BE), 2-1. Georgetown has now played 13 one-run games this season, and have amassed a 5-8 record in those contests.
In game one, Georgetown took a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning without registering a hit. Walks to junior Matthew Maranges (Miami, Fla./Belen Jesuit Prep) and freshman Joe Silvestri (Floral Park, N.Y./Archbishop Molloy) sandwiched a plunking of sophomore Kelly Muir (South Pasadena, Calif./Loyola) to load the bases. SHU shortstop Mike Young then misplayed a grounder of the bat of senior Mark McLaughlin (Walnut Creek, Calif./De La Salle) that allowed two runners to score, and for GU to take the lead.
In the eighth inning, a John Walsh RBI single tied the game for Seton Hall at 3-3. The Pirates would win the game in the 12th on a RBI single by Matt Smedberg.
After the fifth inning, Georgetown managed only three hits over the next seven frames and had their best chance in the 11th, but stranded junior Matthew Bouchard (East Greenwich, R.I./Bishop Hendricken) on third base.
Georgetown had initially rallied to tie the game, 1-1, in the fourth inning on a Bouchard run-scoring triple.
Junior Michael Gaggioli (Mission Viejo, Calif./Santa Margarita Catholic) went seven innings and allowed two runs while walking none and striking out five. Freshman Jack Bender (Cranford, N.J./Cranford) could not hold the lead, but still managed to pitch well in relief, allowing only two hits in three innings and striking out three. Junior Daniel Kennedy (West Orange, N.J./Regis) was saddled with the loss and saw his record fall to 2-3
In game two, freshman Tim Adleman (Raleigh, N.C./Wakefield) threw a complete game for the Hoyas, allowing two runs on six hits while striking out five. However, on this day, he was outdone by SHU's Corey Young who also threw a complete game and allowed one run on four hits while striking out 10.
Georgetown went ahead, 1-0, in the first inning on a RBI single by senior Brandon Davis (Poway, Calif./The Bishop's School). The only other offensive bright spot for GU came in the third inning when senior Derek deGrijs (Nashville, Tenn./Goodpasture) singled to left field to extend his hitting streak to 11 games.
Seton Hall tied the game 1-1, in the second and wound up plating the game-winning run in the fourth on a RBI single by Mike Young. Down 2-1, Georgetown left runners stranded in scoring position to end the sixth, seventh and eighth innings.
Georgetown and Seton Hall will play the third game of their three-game series on Saturday at noon in South Orange, N.J.
