BETHESDA, Md. - Sophomore pitcher Jack Vander Linden (Dallas, Texas/Episcopal) went seven strong innings, allowing just one run, but Seton Hall (28-19, 13-7 BIG EAST) scored in the top of the ninth inning, breaking a 1-1 tie, to defeat the Georgetown University baseball team (20-26, 6-14 BIG EAST), 2-1 on Saturday night at Shirley Povich Field.

Vander Linden, allowed six hits and struck out three, but did not figure in the decision, as the Pirates' Ryan Harvey allowed one run in a complete game to earn the victory in a pitcher's duel.

Seton Hall first threatened in the top of the second inning, putting runners on first and second base with one-out, before Vander Linden registered a strike out. Senior second baseman Andy Lentz saved a run, making a diving stop in the hole to rob Dillon Hamlin, stranding two Seton Hall base-runners to keep the game scoreless.

Junior centerfielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) broke the tie in the bottom of the third inning hitting a solo home run over the batter's eye in centerfield to give GU a 1-0 lead. The lead was short-lived, as Seton Hall tied the score in the top of the fourth inning, as Sal Annunziata homered to right centerfield, tying the score at one run apiece.

The game remained tied until the top of the ninth inning. The Pirates put two runners on base with one out, before Michael Betz's bunt single drove in Kyle Grimm for the go ahead run, giving SHU a 2-1 lead against GU pitcher Thomas Polus, who would take the loss, allowing a run in 1.1 inning.

The Hoyas Kevin Johnson hit a ball deep to the warning track in left center field, with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, but Seton Hall leftfielder Ryan Sullivan was there to make the catch to close out the Hoyas, 2-1.

GU and the Pirates conclude its three-game series on Sunday, May 6 at 1 p.m.
