BETHESDA, Md. – The Georgetown baseball team pounded out 24 hits and 14 runs in a doubleheader sweep of the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore (UMES), 7-3 and 7-2, Tuesday afternoon at Shirley Povich Field. Both games were seven innings. The two teams played a doubleheader to make up for a postponed game at UMES back on Feb. 26. Georgetown improved to 15-22 overall while UMES fell to 11-24.
Steven Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) had four hits and four RBI on the day while Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) added three base knocks and three RBI. Both Anderson and Collins reached base five times. Four other Hoyas had three hits on the day.
Game One …
The Hoyas scored a run in the bottom of the fifth inning and added three more in the sixth to break a 3-3 deadlock on their way to a 7-3 win.
Chris Giordano (Orlando, Fla./Lake Highland) won his first collegiate game, pitching 5.1 innings giving up three runs, none of them earned, on four hits. Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) pitched the final 1.2 innings for his fifth save of the season. Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./St. Mary’s) went 3-for-3 while Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area), Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) and AC Carter (Winter Park, Fla./Orangewood Christian) all had two hits.
Georgetown jumped right on the board with a pair of runs in the bottom of the first inning. With one out, Hall doubled to the left-center gap and scored on a single to right by Collins. He eventually scored on a wild pitch to give the Hoyas a 2-0 lead.
The Blue & Gray extended their lead to 3-0 in the second inning. With one out, Webber perfectly executed a hit-and-run, sending Joseph Bialkowski (Raleigh, N.C./Needham B. Broughton) to third. Busch followed with a double, his team-leading 11th of the season, to score Bialkowski.
The score remained that way until the fifth when UMES put three unearned runs on the board to tie the score.
The Hoyas came right back however, reclaiming the lead when Anderson, who had been hit by a pitch, scored on a single by Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Ridge).
GU added three insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Webber, Busch and Hall all hit consecutive singles, the latter two coming on bunts, to load the bases with nobody out. Collins was then hit-by-a-pitch, his second of the game, to score Webber. Anderson reached on a fielder’s choice, scoring Busch and Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) singled to center to plate Hall, making the score 7-3.
Game Two …
Georgetown used a three-run fourth inning to break a 2-2 tie, wrapping up the sweep with a 7-2 victory.
Nick Leonard (Washington, D.C./Maret) earned his second win of the season, going five inning while giving up just two runs on four hits. He struck out two. Anderson went 4-for-4 with three RBI and Collins, Camporini and Bialkowski all had two hits.
The Hoyas again grabbed a lead in the bottom of the first inning. With two outs, Collins doubled to right-center and scored on a single by Anderson.
GU added another run in the second when Camporini reached on an error and scored when Bialkowski doubled down the left field line.
UMES tied the score with a two-run home run in the third.
Georgetown broke the tie with a three-run fourth inning. Walks to Webber and Kuzbel and a single by Busch loaded the bases with one out. Hall reached on an error by the shortstop, allowing Webber to cross the plate. Collins then hit a sacrifice fly to right to score Kuzbel and Anderson singled, scoring Busch to give the Blue & Gray a 5-2 lead.
They added single runs in the fifth and sixth innings, on RBI from Webber and Anderson.
Georgetown returns to BIG EAST play when it travels to St. John’s for a three-game series over the weekend. The series will start with a 6 p.m. game on Friday evening in a contest that will be broadcast live on ESPN3. The two teams will also play on Saturday and Sunday, both with scheduled starts of 1 p.m. All three games will be played at the Red Storm’s Jack Kaiser Stadium.
Notes – With hits in both games of the doubleheader, Camporini has now reached base safely in 21 consecutive games.
