BETHESDA, Md. – The Georgetown baseball team knocked out 14 base hits on Saturday night, en route to a 6-4 victory over Villanova in a BIG EAST contest at Shirley Povich Field. The Hoyas improved to 17-25 overall and 3-11 in the BIG EAST while Villanova dropped to 12-30 with a 3-11 mark in the conference.
Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) went seven strong innings, giving up two runs on five hits while setting a career-high with eight strikeouts. Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) had three hits and was on base four times. He had two RBI and stole three bases. Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area), Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./St. Mary’s), Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) and AC Carter (Winter Park, Fla./Orangewood Christian) all had two hits. Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) homered and had two RBI.
Villanova got on the board with a pair of runs on a two-out single in the top of the first inning to take an early 2-0 lead.
The Hoyas started their comeback with a run in the bottom of the third. Anderson just missed a three-run home run to right field, but had to settle for a sacrifice fly to the fence to score Webber, who had singled.
Georgetown pushed across two more runs in the fourth to take its first lead. Hall was hit-by-a-pitch to lead things off. He stole second and advanced to third on a groundout by Jake Kuzbel (Ashburn, Va./ Stone Ridge).
One out later, Webber lined a first-pitch single into center to score Hall. Collins followed with a high pop-up into no-man’s land down the left field line. Webber, running hard the entire way, scored from first as Collins cruised into second with an RBI double.
In the fifth inning, Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) walked and Joseph Bialkowski (Raleigh, N.C./Needham B. Broughton) doubled to put two runners in scoring position with nobody out. Hall followed with a two-run double down the left field line to give the Hoyas a 5-2 lead.
Anderson crushed a 2-1 fastball over the centerfield fence in the sixth to extend Georgetown’s lead to 6-2.
Villanova cut GU’s lead in half with two runs off of Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) in the top of the eighth.
The two teams will wrap up their three-game series on Sunday with a 1 p.m. game. Chris Giordano (Orlando, Fla./Lake Highland) will be on the mound for the Blue & Gray.
Notes – Prior to the game, the Blue & Gray will honor its five seniors – Justin Abbott (Raleigh, N.C./Millbrook), Anderson, Camporini, Jack Vander Linden (Dallas, Texas/Episcopal School of Dallas) and Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's School) - with a pregame Senior Day ceremony … Camporini walked to lead off the bottom of the fifth inning, extending his streak to 26 consecutive games of reaching base safely.
