Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University baseball team dropped a BIG EAST game to Pittsburgh on Friday evening at Trees Field in Pittsburgh, Pa., 9-2. The Hoyas held the lead until the Panthers scored six runs in the fourth inning to break the game open.
Sophomore Tim Adleman struggled with the start, allowing seven runs over three and two-thirds innings. Senior Grady McConnell pitched two and one-third before being relieved by freshman Dan Godefroi, who closed the game with two innings of one-hit ball.
Seven Pittsburgh players recorded multiple hits and four players drove in two runs apiece during the game. Pittsburgh sophomore lefthander Nate Reed threw a three-hit complete game and struck out nine Hoya batters.
Georgetown took the lead in the first when sophomore Tommy Lee legged out an infield single and proceeded to steal second. After a GU out, senior Matt Harrigan delivered with a RBI single for the early lead.
After Pittsburgh tied the game in the second, sophomore Tom led-off with a walk and just like Lee had done, stole second base. After a groundout moved Elliott up to third, senior Matt Iannetta brought the Hoya shortstop home with a sacrifice fly to left.
The Hoyas and Panthers will play a doubleheader tomorrow at Trees Field in Pittsburgh, Pa., starting at 1 p.m.
