Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University baseball team dropped the second game of their BIG EAST series with South Florida this afternoon at Shirley Povich Field, 10-7. The Bulls hit a season-high six home runs while Hoya freshmen Andy Lentz (Farmington Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) and Rand Ravnaas (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints Episcopal) accumulated four of their team's six RBI's.
After falling behind 2-0 due to two solo home runs, Georgetown tied things in the second inning of USF starter Shawn Sanford. With one gone, Greg Pustizzi (Medford, N.J./Bishop Eustace Prep) doubled down the left-field line and Ravnaas singled through the right side. With runners on the corners, a wild pitch allowed Ravnaas to move into scoring position. Lentz came through with the big hit, a two-run double to right, that tied the game 2-2.
A Dan Capeless (Centerville, Mass./Boston College H.S.) solo homer provided the only Georgetown run as USF built on their lead and took a 9-3 lead. Hoya starter Jimmy Saris (Great Falls, Va./Langley) didn't make it through the fourth, allowing four long-balls and seven runs.
The Hoyas got back in the game with a three-run sixth inning. Sean Lamont (Houston, Texas/Bellaire) doubled to right field and scored on Sean Baumann's (Tampa, Fla./Freedom) ensuing double down the left-field line. Capeless walked and a Pustizzi groundout moved both GU runners to second and third. Ravnaas brought the Georgetown faithful to their feet with his second hit of the afternoon, a two-run single up the middle that cut the USF lead to 9-6.
Jared Cohen (Phoenixville, Pa./The Haverford School) and Pablo Vinent (Miami, Fla./Belen Jesuit) each allowed a home run in relief, but those were the only blemishes over the final five and two-third innings for the GU pitching staff.
The Blue & Gray got closer during the seventh inning, trimming the deficit to two runs. With two outs, Lamont and Baumann drew back-to-back free passes. A slow grounder to first off the bat of Capeless was collected, but thrown away by USF first baseman Todd Brazeal. This allowed Lamont to score and make it a 9-7 contest.
USF leftfielder Chris Rey went two-for-four with three runs and three RBI's. His two home runs today gave him three for the weekend. Rightfielder Stephen Hunt and catcher Daniel Rockhold also knocked in three runs apiece for the Bulls.
The final game of the BIG EAST baseball series between USF and Georgetown has been pushed back from its original start time and will be played at 1:45 p.m. tomorrow afternoon at Shirley Povich Field.
