BETHESDA, Md. – The Georgetown baseball team fell 8-2 to Xavier on Saturday afternoon in a BIG EAST conference matchup at Shirley Povich Field. After the game, baseball took a back seat as members of the Blue & Gray shaved their heads in partnership with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
The Hoyas, who before the game recognized four local youths who are battling childhood cancer, have been fundraising heavily for St. Baldrick’s since the beginning of February. While the final totals have not been tallied, as of Saturday evening, the team had raised nearly $46,000 making them the second-highest fundraising collegiate baseball team in St. Baldrick’s 14-year history.
In Saturday’s game, starting pitcher David Ellingson (The Woodlands, Texas/The Woodlands College Park) went seven-plus innings giving up five runs, four earned, while striking out two. Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) and Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) each had a pair of hits while Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) drove in a pair of runs.
The Hoyas (12-15, 0-2 BE) got on the board in the bottom of the first inning. Busch led off with an eight-pitch at bat, finally singling through the hole between shortstop and third base. He promptly stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch. With one out, he scored when Collins grounded out to the second baseman.
Xavier (15-13, 2-0 BE) took the lead in the top of the second with a pair of runs and added another run in the top of the third to take a 3-1 lead.
The score remained that way until the bottom of the seventh when Georgetown cut into the deficit with a run. Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./St. Mary’s) led off with a walk and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Evan Ryan (Omaha, Neb./Creighton Prep). Busch was then hit by a pitch and Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) grounded into a fielder’s choice, putting runners at the corners with two outs. Collins snuck a single up the middle to allow Webber to cross the plate.
The Musketeers put the game away with five runs in the top of the eighth inning.
The two teams wrap up their three-game series with a noon contest on Sunday at Shirley Povich Field.
