April 29, 2010
WASHINGTON - Georgetown junior third baseman Sean Lamont (Houston, Texas/Bellaire) hit a three-run home run and the Hoyas collected 10 hits, but left 11 men on base as No. 1 Virginia scored 10 runs in the first five innings en route to a 10-5 win at Davenport Field in Charlottesville, Va.
The Hoyas have lost four-straight games and fall to 19-22 overall with the loss, while the Cavaliers improve to 36-9 overall.
Georgetown had chances early in the game, loading the bases in the top of the first inning with none out after senior center fielder Tommy Lee (Mahopac, N.Y./Mahopac) was hit by a pitch, sophomore right fielder Rand Ravnaas (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints' Episcopal) singled, both players moved up on a double steal and a walk to senior left fielder Billy Cupelo (Franklin, Mass./Bishop Feehan). Virginia starter Whit Mayberry, however, struck out the next three batters to get out of the jam.
The Hoyas took a 1-0 lead in the second when sophomore catcher Kevin Johnson (Peabody, Mass./Belmont Hill) doubled down the left field line, scoring senior second baseman Chip Malt (Boston, Mass./Buckingham, Browne & Nicholas), who reached base on a leadoff walk. A triple from Lee and a walk to Ravnaas put runners on the corners with two out, but UVa reliever Justin Thompson, who threw 3.1 innings of scoreless relief and picked up the win, got out of the jam.
The Cavaliers struck back in the bottom of the inning with two runs off junior starter Jared Cohen (Phoenixville, Pa./The Haverford School). Virginia scored three runs off freshman reliever Tommy Polus (Crown Point, Ind./Andrean) in the third, then added two runs in the fourth off senior Cary Piligian (Troy, Mich./Detroit Jesuit) and three more off sophomore Bobby Kirby (Bel Air, Md./Loyola Blakefield) in the fifth, taking a 10-1 lead.
Georgetown added a run in the sixth when sophomore Dan Godefroi (Andover, Mass./Andover) singled, scoring Malt, who had walked and moved to second on a walk to Johnson.
Junior Pablo Vinent (Miami, Fla./Belen Jesuit), freshman James Heine (Chapel Hill, N.C./East Chapel Hill) and freshman Neal Dennison (Houston, Texas/Lamar) each threw a scoreless inning of relief for the Hoyas.
Lee finished 2-for-4 and stole his 25th base of the season, while Ravnaas went 2-for-4 and Johnson went 2-for-2 with one RBI and reached base three times.
Georgetown (19-22, 2-13 BIG EAST) returns to action this weekend, visiting Villanova (22-16, 3-12 BIG EAST) in a key conference series, starting on Friday, April 30.
