WASHINGTON - Connecticut jumped out to a 6-0 lead after four innings and held on for a 6-3 win over Georgetown as the Hoyas were swept in a doubleheader on Friday at New Britain Stadium. Georgetown lost the opening game of the doubleheader, 14-2, as the Huskies scored five runs in the fifth inning to break open a close game.

The loss completed a series sweep as Georgetown falls to 19-22 overall and 2-13 in the BIG EAST, while Connecticut improves to 26-12-1 overall and 13-2 in league play.

In the nightcap, redshirt junior starting pitcher Tommy Isaacs (Ponte Vedre Beach, Fla./Bolles) gave up two runs in the bottom of the first inning, with Mike Nemeth hitting an RBI single and Ryan Fuller driving in one with a sacrifice fly.

The Hoyas had chances in the early innings with runners on base against UConn starter Brian Ward, but could not plate any runs. The Huskies took advantage of three Georgetown errors in the fourth inning and scored four unearned runs off Isaacs, building their lead to 6-0.

Georgetown got on board in the fifth inning when sophomore centerfielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) hit a three-run home run to center, driving in junior second baseman Andy Lentz (Farmington Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) and sophomore left fielder Paul Bello (Towaca, N.J./Delbarton), who had reached on one-out singles.

Freshman reliever Alex Baker (Charlotte, N.C./Ardrey Kell) and senior Pablo Vinent (Hialeah, Fla./Belen Jesuit) each threw two scoreless innings of relief for the Hoyas.

The Hoyas had a chance to cut into the lead in the eighth. Senior catcher Erick Fernandez (Hialeah, Fla./Hialeah) and senior first baseman Dan Capeless (Centreville, Mass./Boston College HS) reached base on singles. Another single, this one from freshman Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland), moved the runners up, but Fernandez was thrown out going to home for the second out of the inning and UConn reliever Dan Feehan got out of the jam.

Leeson went 1-for-4 with his three-run home run and Fernandez was 3-for-4 at the plate, with three singles.

In the opener, sophomore pitcher Charles Steinman (Rockville Centre, N.Y./Chaminade) kept the Hoyas close for four-plus innings, but Connecticut scored five runs in the fifth inning to break open a close game en route to a 14-2 win.

The Huskies jumped out to a 2-0 lead in third. Billy Ferriter reached on a bunt single and moved to third when LJ Mazzilli hit a double. Steinman recorded two outs but a single from Mike Nemeth drove in a pair of runs.

The Hoyas cut the lead to 2-1 in the top of the fourth when a double from senior third baseman Sean Lamont (Houston, Texas/Bellaire) moved Fernandez to third. Fernandez, who reached on a one-out walk, scored when Capeless grounded out to first.

UConn added one run in the fourth to push the lead to 3-1 and Steinman got into trouble in the fifth. Nick Ahmed hit a leadoff single and a two-run home run from George Springer gave the Huskies a 5-1 lead. A single, a walk and a hit by pitch with two outs loaded the bases and an error in the outfield brought home all three runs as UConn pushed its lead to 8-1.

The Huskies added six more runs in the seventh inning to close out the scoring.

Lamont went 3-for-4 with a double and two singles to lead Georgetown.

Georgetown is back in action on Tuesday, April 26, visiting George Mason. First pitch is slated for 3 p.m.
