WASHINGTON - Georgetown out-hit No. 9 Louisville for the second-straight game, but could not convert those chances into runs as the Hoyas gave up four runs in the first inning and lost to the Cardinals, 6-2, at Patterson Stadium in Louisville, Ky. on Saturday afternoon.
The loss drops Georgetown's record to 23-17 overall and 5-9 in the BIG EAST, while Louisville improves to 32-10 overall and 10-4 in the league.
Senior left-hander Thomas Polus (Crown Point, Ind./Andrean) started for the Hoyas and lasted only 1.1 innings, giving up five earned runs on four hits with three walks and no strikeouts.
He got into trouble in the first inning when Louisville put runners on second and third with one out after two walks, a sacrifice bunt and a double steal. Ty Young followed with a single to drive in Adam Engel with the first run. The third walk of the inning loaded the bases again and singles from Cole Sturgeon and Kyle Wasserman pushed the lead to 4-0.
The Cardinals added another run in the second when Coco Young hit an RBI double, scoring Nick Ratajczak after he was hit by a pitch.
Georgetown had a strong relief effort from senior James Heine (Chapel Hill, N.C./East Chapel Hill) as the big right-hander gave up one unearned run and no hits with only one walk and two strikeouts over 4.2 innings.
That gave the Hoyas chances at the plate, but the team missed its chances. GU had runners on base three times in the first five innings, but could not cut into the lead as a pair of double plays ended threats.
The Blue & Gray scored their only runs of the game in the sixth inning when freshman designated hitter Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) hit a two-run home run to left, plating classmate Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's), who had reached on a fielder's choice.
Senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./Overlake) reached on an error to lead off the seventh and junior first baseman Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland) was hit by a pitch, but Louisville starter Jeff Thompson retired the next three batters to protect the lead.
The three-game series with Louisville concludes on Sunday, April 28, with first pitch slated for 1 p.m. The Hoyas return home for a five-game stand, beginning on Tuesday, April 30. First pitch against the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore is slated for 7 p.m.
