Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University baseball team received multi-hit games from four different players but was defeated this afternoon at UConn, 9-5. Junior shortstop Tom Elliott (Blue Bell, Pa./St. Joseph's Prep) scored twice and hit his fifth home run of the season in the loss.
Georgetown got things going to start the contest, taking an early 1-0 lead. With one out, Chip Malt (Boston, Mass./Buckingham Browne & Nichols) singled through the right side. Dan Godefroi (Andover, Mass./Andover) followed with a base-hit to left-center on the next pitch and with Malt running on contact, reached third safely. Sean Baumann (Tampa, Fla./Freedom) lifted a sacrifice fly to right that plated Malt with the first run of the game.
UConn answered with five runs in the second and four more in the third to take a 9-1 lead. George Springer, Joe Pavone and Peter Fatse each scored twice and Harold Brantley Jr., Nick Ahmed and Pavone each knocked in two runs for the Huskies. John Folino got the win, allowing three earned runs over six innings and striking out seven batters.
Tim Adleman (Raleigh, N.C./Wakefield) struggled with the start allowing eight earned runs in three innings. Bobby Kirby (Bel Air, Md./Loyola Blakefield) and Cary Piligian (Troy, Mich./Detroit Jesuit) combined to silence the UConn bats for the final five innings of play, allowing only two hits and no runs.
With one out in the fourth, Greg Pustizzi (Medford, N.J./Bishop Eustace Prep) and Rand Ravnaas (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints Episcopal) hit consecutive singles up the middle before Kelly Muir (South Pasadena, Calif./Loyola) made it three straight with a run-scoring base-hit to center.
Elliott homered to lead-off the sixth, his fifth of the season which puts him second on the team, to tack another run on the scoreboard. With two down, Muir reached on an error by UConn's shortstop and Andy Lentz (Farmington Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) followed with a single on the next pitch to left-center. Malt came through with his second hit of the day and brought in another run to cut the deficit to 9-4
With two down in the seventh, Elliott picked up another extra base-hit when he doubled down the left-field line. The junior shortstop eventually scored when Pustizzi knocked him in with a single to left-center.
The Hoyas and Huskies will meet in game two tomorrow afternoon at 1 p.m.
