WASHINGTON - Georgetown scored five runs in the final three innings, but it wasn't enough as the Hoyas fell behind early and lost to No. 11 Louisville, 13-7, in the final game of a three-game series at Patterson Stadium in Louisville, Ky. on Sunday afternoon.
The loss, the third-straight for the Blue & Gray, drops Georgetown's record to 23-18 overall and 5-10 in the BIG EAST, while Louisville improves to 33-10 overall and 11-4 in the league.
Freshman starting pitcher Matt Smith (Cranberry Township, Pa./Seneca Valley) took the loss for the Hoyas, throwing 4.1 innings and giving up five earned runs on seven hits with two walks and two strikeouts.
The Cardinals took a 1-0 lead in the second on a solo home run from Coco Johnson and then added four more runs in the third, three on a bases-clearing double from Tyler Young, giving UL a 5-0 lead.
Smith gave up one more run in the fifth before being relieved by freshman Gino Basso (Glen Allen, Va./Godwin), who went two-thirds of an inning and was charged with three unearned runs. Senior reliever Neal Dennison (Houston, Texas/Lamar) pitched the sixth inning and gave up four runs on five hits as the lead grew to 12-2.
The Hoyas cut into the lead in the seventh when junior right fielder Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's) hit a three-run home run to left, driving in Bush (hit by pitch) and freshman catcher Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's).
In the ninth, leadoff walks to pinch-hitter Evan Ryan (Omaha, Neb./Creighton Prep) and senior Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) put runners on first and second. A single from Webber drove in one run and Venditti hit a sacrifice fly to drive in the team's final run.
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.
