WASHINGTON - Georgetown pitchers gave up seven runs over the first four innings of the game and St. John's cruised to a 20-1 win over the Hoyas in a BIG EAST baseball game at Shirley Povich Field Sunday afternoon.

It was the second-straight loss for the Hoyas, who fall to 20-13 overall and 4-5 in BIG EAST play, while SJU improves to 15-21 overall and 5-7 in the league.

Sophomore starter Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) gave up two runs on three hits in the first inning as the Red Storm opened a 2-0 lead.

Freshman reliever Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) came on in the second inning and went 3.2 innings, giving up six runs (five earned) on four hits with one walk and four strikeouts.

Senior reliever James Heine (Chapel Hill, N.C./East Chapel Hill) was charged with six runs (two earned) on six hits in 1.1 innings of relief and freshman Gino Basso (Glen Allen, Va./Godwin) gave up six runs (five earned) on four hits with two talks in 3.0 innings.

St. John's starter Ryan Horstman went 8.0 innings, allowing one run on six hits with one walk and seven strikeouts.

The Hoyas scored their only run in the fourth inning, with an RBI single from freshman Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) scoring senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./Overlake), who had hit a leadoff single to right and moved to second when senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) reached on an error. That cut the SJU lead to 7-1 and the Hoyas had runners on first and second with none out, but junior right fielder Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's) lined out to short and Poplawski was thrown at second for the double play, ending the threat.

Georgetown is back in action on Tuesday, April 16, visiting George Mason. First pitch is slated for 3 p.m.
