Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University baseball team lost in frustrating fashion on Friday night at Seton Hall, 2-0. Despite some outstanding starting pitching from junior right-hander Tim Adleman (Raleigh, N.C./Wakefield), the Hoyas were unable to score despite putting a runner in scoring position during five innings and also had two runners thrown out at the plate.
Adleman was superb on the mound for the Hoyas, striking out seven batters over seven innings. He is now tied for ninth in the BIG EAST with 45 strikeouts on the season. Tommy Isaacs (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Bolles) pitched a scoreless ninth for the Blue & Gray.
The Hoyas wasted numerous chances in the contest to score runs and it cost them this evening as Adleman was giving them a great effort on the hill. In the second inning, GU had runners on the corners with one out, but an inning-ending double play killed the chances. During the fourth, Erick Fernandez (Hialeah, Fla./Hialeah) doubled with one out, however, no one was able to drive him home.
Tom Elliott (Blue Bell, Pa./St. Joseph's Prep) tripled to the left-center wall starting the sixth, but was thrown out at home when Tommy Lee (Mahopac, N.Y./Mahopac) hit a grounder to third. Lee did have two hits on the night to extend his hitting streak to 11 games. With two outs and Lee on second after another ground-out, a strikeout kept GU from scoring
Georgetown put a runner in scoring position once again during the seventh. With one out and runners on first and third, a squeeze play was well played by Seton Hall and Dan Capeless (Centerville, Mass./Boston College H.S.) was tagged out at the plate. It was the second-straight inning that the Hoyas had a runner tagged out at home while trying to score the first run of the contest.
Seton Hall received an outstanding performance from Preseason All-BIG EAST selection Sean Black. The junior right-hander blanked the Hoyas over eight innings and struck out six batters to add to his team-leading total. Matt Singer, SHU's saves leader last season, picked up his first of the season with a 1-2-3 ninth inning. Senior designated hitter Chris Affinito, another Preseason All-BIG EAST pick, did the damage at the plate for the Pirates with a two-run single through the left side, with two outs in the seventh.
The final chance of the night for GU came in the eighth as the team loaded the bases with one out. However, a strikeout and fly-out ended the final real threat of the evening.
The Hoyas and Pirates play the second game of their series tomorrow afternoon at 1 p.m.
