BETHESDA, Md. - Ninth-ranked Louisville scored four runs in the first inning and starter Justin Amlung held Georgetown scoreless on five hits over six innings as the Cardinals posted a 10-3 win over the Hoyas in the final game of a three-game series at Shirley Povich Field Sunday afternoon.
The loss drops Georgetown's record to 22-26 overall and 4-17 in the BIG EAST Conference, while Louisville improves to 40-8 overall and 16-5 in league play.
Georgetown got into trouble in the first when sophomore starter Will Harris (Winter Park, Fla./Trinity Prep) loaded the bases with one out after a single from Jeff Arnold and walks to Adam Duvall and Phil Wunderlich. Stewart Ijames gave Louisville the early lead with a single to right-center, plating two runs. Wunderlich stole third and scored on a throwing error, allowing Ijames to move to third and a ground out from Kyle Grieshaber brought in the final run, giving the Cardinals a 4-0 lead.
The Hoyas mounted their own effort in the bottom of the first off Amlung, Sophomore right fielder Rand Ravnaas (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints' Episcopal) walked with one out and singles junior from baseman Dan Capeless (Centreville, Mass./Boston College H.S.) and junior third baseman Sean Lamont (Houston, Texas/Bellaire) loaded the bases, but GU could not plate a run.
Georgetown put runners on in the next two innings, but each time, Amlung was able to get out of the inning. He gave up a two-out single to sophomore Nick Geary (Miami, Fla./Ransom Everglades) in the second and then a leadoff single to Ravnaas in the third, but he was picked off with two out.
Amlung retired eight in a row before Hoya senior shortstop Tommy Elliott (Blue Bell, Pa./St. Joseph's Prep) reached on an error to lead off the sixth. A two-out single from Lamont put runners on the corners, but that ended the threat.
Freshman Charles Steinman (Rockville Centre, N.Y./Chaminade) came on in the second inning and was strong in relief of Harris. Steinman threw 4.0 innings, allowing one run on two hits with three walks and four strikeouts.
The Blue & Gray got on board in the bottom of the eighth when Lamont doubled to the wall in left, bringing in Capeless after a one-out walk. The Hoyas added another run when sophomore Kevin Johnson (Peabody, Mass./Belmont Hill) followed with a double to the corner in left off Louisville reliever Bob Revesz, making it 10-2. Johnson scored on a wild pitch for the final run.
Senior pitcher Cary Piligian (Detroit, Mich./Detroit Country Day) gave up four runs, two of them earned, in the sixth inning. Sophomore Bobby Kirby (Bel Air, Md./Loyola Blakefield) threw the seventh inning and gave up one run, while freshman James Heine (Chapel Hill, N.C./East Chapel Hill) pitched the final two innings, walking two batters.
