Final Stats

WASHINGTON – AC Carter (Winter Park, Fla./Orangewood Christian) hit a grand slam in the top of the third inning to help lead the Georgetown baseball team to an 8-3 victory over Butler on Saturday afternoon. The game was played at Butler’s Bulldog Park in Indianapolis, Ind.

Carter also hit a sacrifice fly in the first inning to finish with five RBI on the day. Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) pitched seven strong innings on the mound, giving up just two runs on six hits and striking out eight, tying his career high that he set last weekend against Villanova. He improved to 5-2 on the season with a team-best 3.18 ERA. Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City), Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Northfield Mt. Hermon Prep (Mass.)/Guilderland) and Evan Ryan (Omaha, Neb./Creighton Prep) all had two hits.

For the second-straight day, the Hoyas (19-27, 5-12 BIG EAST) jumped ahead in the first inning. Hall started things off with a walk. He stole second and took third on a wild pitch before Collins walked to put runners on the corners for Anderson. Anderson hit his third double in two games to score Hall and push Collins to third. Carter pushed Collins across the plate with a sacrifice fly to left to give Georgetown a 2-0 lead.

Carter extended the lead to 6-0 with his one-out grand slam, his second home run of the season, in the third inning. Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla./Clearwater Central Catholic), who had singled, Collins (walk) and Anderson (hit-by-pitch) all scored on the blast.


 

 

Ryan and Curtiss Pomeroy (Shrewsbury, Mass./Saint John's/Phillips Andover) both scored in the seventh inning as Butler (17-29, 4-10 BIG EAST) committed two errors, a wild pitch and a balk.

The Bulldogs scored single runs in the third, seventh and ninth innings.

The two teams conclude their three-game series on Sunday afternoon. First pitch is scheduled for noon. David Ellingson (The Woodlands, Texas/The Woodlands College Park) will take the mound for the Hoyas.

Notes – Camporini’s single in the third inning extended his streak to 30-consecutive games of reaching base safely ... Anderson’s RBI in the first gives him 96 for his career.
