April 25, 2013
WASHINGTON - Georgetown scored six runs in the fifth inning and freshman Curtiss Pomeroy (Shrewsbury, Mass./Saint John's) and senior Corbin Blakey (Alpharetta, Ga./Centennial) combined to drive in seven runs as the Hoyas beat Coppin State, 13-6, on Wednesday evening at Joe Cannon Field in Baltimore.
It was the fourth-straight non-league win for the Hoyas, who improve to 23-15 overall, while Coppin State falls to 12-27 overall.
Senior reliever James Heine (Chapel Hill, N.C./East Chapel Hill) picked up the win for the Hoyas, throwing two shutout innings and striking out three batters to improve to 2-1 this season.
Heine was one of five pitchers to appear for Georgetown. Sophomore Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) started for the Hoyas went 4.0 innings, giving up three runs (one earned) on five hits with two walks and one strikeout.
The Hoyas jumped out to an early lead in the first inning with a pair of runs. Senior third baseman Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart) hit a one-out double and scored on a single from freshman Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines). Collins, who moved to second on a throw, scored on a two-out single to left-center from Blakey.
Coppin State scored three runs, two of them unearned thanks to an error, to take a 3-2 lead but the Hoyas tied the game in the fourth. Blakey hit a leadoff single to right, stole second and scored when Pomeroy doubled to left.
Georgetown broke the 3-all tie in the fifth with six runs, as the first seven players reached base. Matern singled and pinch-runner Alex Pettee (New Canaan, Conn./St. Luke's) moved to second on a wild pitch, to third on a single from Collins. Pettee scored on a wild pitch and a walk to junior first baseman Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland) put runners on first and second for Blakey, who doubled down the left field line to score Collins, making 5-3. After a walk to Justin Abbott (Raleigh, N.C./Millbrook) loaded the bases, Pomeroy singled to drive in a run. An infield single from senior Paul Bello (Towaca, N.J./Delbarton) drove in another run. Sophomore Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) hit into a double play, allowing Abbott to score and Pomeroy advanced home on a wild pitch, making it 9-3.
The Hoyas pushed the lead to 11-3 in the sixth on a two-run single from Pomeroy, scoring Blakey and Anderson, who had walked. In the seventh, Anderson drove in a run with a groundout and Blakey hit an RBI single.
Blakey went 4-for-5 with a double, two singles, three runs scored and three RBI, while Pomeroy was 3-for-5 with a double, two singles, one run and four RBI. Collins went 3-for-5 at the plate, while Matern and Bello each had two hits.
Junior Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) threw one inning and gave up three runs (two earned), while freshman Gino Basso (Glen Allen, Va./Godwin) and Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) each threw a scoreless inning.
