Final Stats

OMAHA, Neb. – In a game that featured just five total hits, the Georgetown baseball team (12-18, 0-4 BIG EAST) fell 2-0 to Creighton on Friday evening in a BIG EAST Conference matchup. The game, which took just one hour and 52 minutes, was played at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha, the home of the College World Series.

Matt Smith (Cranberry Twp, Pa./Seneca Valley) pitched very well despite the loss, going seven innings, giving up just three hits and two runs. Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) reached base twice with a double and a walk. Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) had the only other hit for the Hoyas, a single in the fourth inning. Felix van der Vaart (Annandale, Va./Flint Hill School) pitched a perfect eighth inning

A pitching duel the entire game, Creighton (16-11-1, 1-0 BIG EAST) scored its two runs in the bottom of the fifth. After a pair of walks, the Bluejays got a two-run triple down the left field line, that Camporini just missed on a sliding attempt.

Smith was helped out by some superb defense behind him. Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) made a nice running catch into shallow left field, catching the ball with his back to home plate, on the first batter of the game. He topped that with a fully outstretched leaping catch on a line drive over his right shoulder. Hall made five catches in center field, making running plays into both gaps.

The two teams will wrap up the series with a doubleheader on Saturday. Originally scheduled for single games on Saturday and Sunday, Sunday’s game was moved up due to impending inclement weather. Saturday’s doubleheader, scheduled for two nine-inning games, will start at 1 p.m. ET.
