QUEENS, N.Y. – St. John’s scored eight runs in the first two innings on Sunday afternoon, defeating the Georgetown baseball team 15-5 in a BIG EAST Conference game at Jack Kaiser Stadium.
Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./Stone Ridge) had three hits on the day to lead the offense while Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) had two hits and two RBI. Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./ Clearwater Central Catholic) and Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area) both reached base twice via a single and a walk and Joseph Bialkowski (Raleigh, N.C./Needham B. Broughton) scored two runs. Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) pitched 4.1 innings of relief, giving up just two earned runs while striking out four.
St. John’s (27-14, 7-2 BIG EAST) jumped on starting pitcher Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) for four runs in the first inning on a single, triple and three doubles. The Red Storm added four more runs in the second inning off of Chris Giordano (Orlando, Fla./Lake Highland) to take an 8-0 lead.
The Hoyas (15-25, 1-11 BIG EAST) got a run back in the third without registering a hit. Bialkowski led off with a walk and moved to third when Kuzbel reached on a fielding error by the second baseman. He scored one out later on a wild pitch.
The Red Storm scored three more runs in the fourth inning off of Nick Leonard (Washington, D.C./Maret) to extend their lead to 11-1.
Georgetown scored two runs in both the seventh and eighth innings. In the seventh, singles by Kuzbel and Busch and a walk to Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) loaded the bases with one out. Collins blooped a single into center field to score both Kuzbel and Busch.
In the eighth, Camporini singled and Bialkowski reached on an error. After both runners moved up on a passed ball, Kuzbel singled to left to score Camporini. Busch followed with an RBI groundout, pushing Bialkowski across the plate.
The Hoyas return home to Shirley Povich Field for a midweek doubleheader against Coppin State on Wednesday. The two teams will play two seven-inning games with game one starting at 4 p.m. and game two starting shortly after the conclusion of the first. The Blue & Gray will host Villanova in a three-game, BIG EAST series on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Notes – Camporini walked in the sixth inning to extend his on-base streak to 24 consecutive games.
