May 9, 2014
WASHINGTON – Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) went 4-for-5 at the plate while Matt Smith (Cranberry Twp., Pa./Seneca Valley) pitched eight innings of five-hit ball to lead the Georgetown baseball team to a 5-2 win over Butler on Friday afternoon. The game was played at Butler’s Bulldog Park in Indianapolis, Ind.
Anderson had four hits in his first four at-bats, including a home run and two doubles for nine total bases to go along with three RBI and two runs scored. Smith gave up just two runs on five hits while striking out six over his eight innings. In his last two starts, covering 16 innings pitched, Smith is 2-0 with a 15 strikeouts while giving up just nine hits and two runs. Curtiss Pomeroy (Shrewsbury, Mass./Saint John's/Phillips Andover) had three hits and two RBI while both Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) and AC Carter (Winter Park, Fla./Orangewood Christian) each had two hits. Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) pitched a scoreless ninth inning, with two strikeouts, for his seventh save.
Georgetown (18-27, 4-12 BIG EAST) took a 1-0 lead in the first when Anderson’s first double of the afternoon scored Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Roseville Area), who had singled, all the way from first.
Butler (17-28, 4-9 BIG EAST) tied the game in the second with a triple and sacrifice fly.
The Hoyas retook the lead in the top of the fourth on a one-out double by Anderson and single by Pomeroy.
The Blue & Gray extended its lead to 4-1 the very next inning. A one-out walk to Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) and single by Collins put runners on first and second. Consecutive RBI singles by Anderson and Pomeroy scored both Hall and Collins to put the Hoyas up by three.
Anderson blasted his fifth home run of the season to right with one out in the seventh inning.
The two teams resume their three-game series on Saturday afternoon. First pitch has been pushed back an hour to 3 p.m. Junior left-hander Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) will take the mound for the Hoyas.
Notes – Patrick Camporini’s (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic) singled in the fourth inning to extend his streak to 29-consecutive games of reaching base safely ... Anderson’s three RBI give him 95 for his career … The Hoyas had three doubles on Friday, giving them nine over the past two games.
