WASHINGTON - Seton Hall scored four runs in the first two innings and senior left hander Thomas Polus (Crown Point, Ind./Andrean) was charged for eight runs in four innings of work as the Georgetown baseball team lost to Seton Hall, 11-4, at Owen T. Carroll Field on Saturday afternoon.

It was the second-straight loss for the Hoyas, and the fourth-straight in conference play, as the team falls to 21-16 overall and 4-7 in the BIG EAST, while Seton Hall improves to 21-15 overall and 6-5 in league play.

Polus finished the day going 4.0 innings and giving up eight runs (four earned) on six hits with five walks and two strikeouts. Freshman reliever Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) gave up two runs on four hits with one walk and two strikeouts in 2.0 innings and freshman Gino Basso (Glen Allen, Va./Godwin) allowed one unearned run on three hits in 2.0 innings.

Seton Hall took a 1-0 lead in the first, but the Hoyas bounced back in the top of the second when junior right fielder Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's) hit a solo home run to left.

The Pirates, however, responded with three runs in the bottom of the inning to take the lead for good.

Georgetown cut the lead to 4-2 in the fourth when junior first baseman Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland) singled to right, scoring freshman Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines), who had hit a one-out single and moved to third on a double from senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./Overlake).

The Hoyas gave up four unearned runs in the bottom of the inning and Seton Hall added two more in the sixth as the lead grew to 10-2.

A bases loaded single from senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) drove in senior Corbin Blakey (Alpharetta, Ga./Centennial), who hit a pinch-hit single and then moved to second after a single from senior left fielder Paul Bello (Towaca, N.J./Delbarton) and to third when sophomore shortstop Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) was hit by a pitch.

The Hoyas play the final game of the series on Sunday, April 21, with first pitch slated for 1 p.m.
