April 15, 2007

Box Score

Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University baseball team lost the decisive third game in a BIG EAST weekend series at Notre Dame on Sunday afternoon, 11-2. The Hoyas (13-23, BE 3-9) fell behind 10-0 after three innings against the Fighting Irish (17-17, BE 4-7), and couldn't dig themselves out of the early hole.

To start the fourth inning, senior Brandon Davis (Poway, Calif./The Bishop's School) reached base after being hit by a pitch. He then moved to second on a passed ball. After a Matt Iannetta (Providence, R.I./St. Raphael Academy) single through the left side pushed Davis to third, sophomore Kelly Muir (South Pasadena, Calif./Loyola) lifted a sacrifice fly to left center to bring the senior designated hitter home and put Georgetown on the board, 10-1

In the eighth inning, Georgetown would get on the scoreboard again. With one out, Muir reached on a fielding error by Notre Dame third baseman A.J. Pollock. Junior Matthew Maranges (Miami, Fla./Belen Jesuit Prep) would then single up the middle to advance Muir to second. After a walk to freshman Joe Silvestri (Floral Park, N.Y./Archbishop Molloy) loaded the bases, sophomore Rob Begin (Princeton, N.J./Princeton) hit into a fielder's s choice which still brought home Muir with GU's second run of the game, and made the score, 11-2.

Jimmy Saris (Great Falls, Va./Langley) got the start for the Hoyas and took the loss, allowing 10 runs, eight earned, on eight hits in 2 1/3 innings. With the loss, Saris saw his record fall to 2-5. Freshmen Cary Piligian (Troy, Mich./Detroit Jesuit), Jack Bender (Cranford, N.J./Cranford) and Billy Concannon (Dallas, Texas/St. Mark's School), along with sophomore Andy Ferich (Collegeville, Pa./Perkiomen Valley) combined to throw 5 2/3 innings in relief for the Hoyas while allowing only one run to cross home plate.



Georgetown resumes play on Wednesday, April 18 at 7 p.m. when the Hoyas host Navy at Shirley Povich Field in a non-conference matchup.
