WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University baseball took an early lead with a run in the first inning, but host St. Mary's College (Calif.) scored four runs in the bottom half and went on to beat the Hoyas, 6-1, in the opening game of a three-game series at Louis Guisto Field in Moraga, Calif.
The Hoyas fall to 17-10 overall, while the Gaels improve to 10-20 with the win.
Georgetown got on the board in the top of the first inning, putting runners on the corners with just one out. Senior third baseman Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart) hit a single through the left side, moved to second on a passed ball and was on third after a single from senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester). A balk by St. Mary's starter Ben Griset scored Matern to give GU a 1-0 lead, but the Hoyas could not get anything else.
Griset retried the next eight batters and did not allow another hit until senior left fielder Paul Bello (Towaca, N.J./Delbarton) hit a one-out single in the fifth.
Georgetown got into trouble in the bottom of the first as redshirt sophomore starter Jack VanderLinden (Dallas, Texas/Episcopal) put the first five St. Mary's batters on base and the Gaels scored four runs to take a 4-1 lead.
Vander Linden settled down and retired six-straight batters before giving up a run in the fourth. He went 7.0 innings and gave up five runs on seven hits with one walk and five strikeouts. In his final six innings, he gave up only one run on three hits.
Griset threw a complete game for St. Mary's, allowing one run on four hits with no walks and 10 strikeouts.
Leeson led the way for Georgetown with a pair of hits.
The series continues on Saturday, April 6 with first pitch scheduled for 4 p.m. (ET).
