April 19, 2013
WASHINGTON - Georgetown jumped out to a 2-1 lead after four innings, but the first five Seton Hall batters reached base in the fifth inning and four of them scored as the Pirates took the lead en route to a 9-2 win over the Hoyas at Owen T. Carroll Field on Friday afternoon.
Georgetown falls to 21-14 overall and 4-6 in the BIG EAST Conference, while Seton Hall improves to 20-15 overall and 6-4 in league play.
Redshirt sophomore starter Jack Vander Linden (Dallas, Texas/Episcopal) was solid through the first four innings, allowing only one unearned run on three hits and retiring seven of the last eight batters before the fifth inning started.
In the fifth, he issued a leadoff walked the Pirates put the next four batters on base and finished the inning by scoring four runs off of only two hits and taking advantage of three walks and a hit by pitch to take a 5-2 lead.
Vander Linden took the loss, falling to 3-2 this season, throwing 5.1 innings and yielding seven runs (four earned) on six hits with four walks and no strikeouts.
Senior reliever James Heine (Chapel Hill, N.C./East Chapel Hill) threw 1.2 innings, giving up two unearned runs on four hits, while sophomore reliever Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) went one scoreless inning, giving up two hits and striking out one. Of the nine runs given up by Georgetown pitchers, only four were earned as the Pirates took advantage of five errors.
The Hoyas had taken a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when back-to-back singles from senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) and senior third baseman Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart) started the inning. A ground out from freshman Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) moved the runners up to second and third and senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./Overlake) reached on a fielder's choice, giving GU a 1-0 lead.
Seton Hall tied the game in the bottom of the first, but the Hoyas took the lead back in the fourth inning. Poplawski hit a double down the left field line to lead off the inning and scored when junior first baseman Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland) singled to right.
That would be it for the Hoyas. Seton Hall starter Jon Prosinski retired the next batters and gave up only one hit the rest of the way - a leadoff single to Anderson in the seventh - as he finished with a complete game, yielding two runs on six hits with one walk and five strikeouts.
The teams will also play on Saturday, April 20 (1 p.m.) before closing out the series on Sunday, April 21 (1 p.m.).
