Georgetown beat Seton Hall, 2-0, on Sunday.
April 21, 2013
WASHINGTON - Freshman pitcher Matt Smith (Cranberry Township, Pa./Seneca Valley) threw five-plus innings and two more Georgetown relievers completed a shutout as the Hoyas salvaged the final game of a three-game series with Seton Hall, beating the Pirates 2-0 at Owen T. Carroll Field Sunday afternoon.
Georgetown closes out the weekend with a 22-16 overall record and a 5-7 mark in the BIG EAST, while Seton Hall falls to 21-16 overall and 7-5 in league play.
Smith went 5.1 innings of shutout ball, giving up six hits - all of them singles - while walking two batters and striking out two. He did not allow a Seton Hall runner to reach third base until the sixth inning, when he gave up back-to-back singles to Sal Genovese and Sal Annunziata and a sacrifice bunt from Kyle Grimm moved both runners up.
The Georgetown bullpen, however, went to work from there. Senior reliever Neal Dennison (Houston, Texas/Lamar) retired the final two batters in the sixth, getting out of the jam. He gave up a pair of hits in the seventh, but struck out Genovese to end the inning and then set the Pirates down in order in the eighth.
Senior reliever Charles Steinman (Rockville Centre, N.Y./Chaminade) gave up a two-out single in the ninth, but induced a pop up to secure his eighth save of the season and the important league win for the Blue & Gray, who are in eighth place in the league standings.
Georgetown jumped on top in the first when senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) and freshman catcher Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./St. Mary's) was hit by a pitch. After Seton Hall recorded two outs, junior right fielder Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's) singled to left and Leeson scored, with Webber thrown out on the play, giving the Hoyas a 1-0 lead.
The Hoyas had the lead runner on base in the second and fourth innings, respectively, but could not add another run against Seton Hall starter Greg Terhune.
Leeson started things again for the Hoyas in the sixth, hitting a leadoff single and moving to second on a bunt from Webber. A single from freshman Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) drove in the second run. GU put runners on in the final three innings, but settled for the 2-0 win.
Georgetown plays at Coppin State on Wednesday, April 24. First pitch is slated for 7 p.m.
