April 9, 2013
WASHINGTON - Freshman catcher Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) hit a two-run home run to highlight a four-run second inning and five Georgetown pitchers combined to hold George Washington to two hits en route to a 9-1 win over the Colonials at Shirley Povich Field on a warm, sunny afternoon in Bethesda, Md.
It was the second-straight win for the Hoyas, who improve to 19-11 overall, while George Washington falls to 11-21 overall. Georgetown has won 13 of its last 18 games.
Freshman pitcher Jordan Chudacoff (Highland Park, Ill./New Trier) picked up his second collegiate win, throwing 5.0 innings and allowing only one hit while walking one and striking out two batters.
The Hoyas quickly gave Chudacoff a lead to work with in the second inning. Senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./Overlake) hit a one-out single and Collins greeted GW starter Brian Derner's first pitch with a hard line drive that sailed over the fence in right-center, giving the Hoyas a 2-0 lead.
Sophomore infielder Ryan Busch (Roseville, Minn./Falcon Heights) and senior outfielder Corbin Blakey (Alpharetta, Ga./Centennial) each singled, with Busch moving to third on an error. Freshman shortstop Curtiss Pomeroy (Shrewsbury, Mass./Saint John's) reached on a fielder's choice as Busch was thrown out at home, but a balk moved runners to second and third. Freshman Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./St. Mary's) then reached on an error that allowed both runners to score, giving GU a 4-0 lead.
Georgetown extended its lead with a five-run eighth inning. Junior Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebasitan's) and senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./Overlake) hit singles to start the inning and the bases were loaded after a walk to Collins. GW reliever Rob Costello hit Busch with his third pitch, keeping the bases loaded and making it 5-0. Pomeroy followed with a hard single up the middle, scoring both Poplawski and Collins. Senior third baseman Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart) followed with a single through the left side, scoring Busch. A walk to freshman Evan Ryan (Omaha, Neb./Creighton Prep) loaded the bases again and a passed ball brought in Pomeroy.
A trio of relievers - freshman Matt Smith (Cranberry Township, Pa./Seneca Valley), senior James Heine (Chapel Hill, N.C./East Chapel Hill) and freshman Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) - each threw scoreless innings of relief. Sophomore Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) gave up one run in the ninth inning.
The Hoyas scored nine runs on 13 hits, with three players having multi-hit games. Matern went 3-for-5 with one RBI, while Collins was 2-for-3 with a home run, two runs and two RBI and Busch went 2-for-3 with one run and one RBI and Pomeroy was 1-for-4 with two runs and two RBI.
Georgetown remains at home this weekend, hosting St. John's (13-18, 3-6 BIG EAST) in a key BIG EAST weekend series. First pitch on Friday, April 12 is slated for 3 p.m.
