May 12, 2009
Washington, D.C. - Coming off their best pitching outing of the season, Billy Concannon (Dallas, Texas/St. Mark's School) earned his first win of the season and a quartet of relievers helped Georgetown win their season-high third game in a row tonight at UMBC, 10-3. Sean Lamont (Houston, Texas/Bellaire) went 3-for-5 with two runs and four RBI's. The sophomore third baseman had two doubles and connected on his 14th home run of the season, one shy of the school record.
Concannon allowed only one run on three hits over five innings and struck out a career-high four batters. Pablo Vinent (Miami, Fla./Belen Jesuit), Cary Piligian (Troy, Mich./Detroit Jesuit) and Mike Smith (Needham, Mass./Belmont Hill) combined to one-hit the Retrievers for the next three innings
The Hoyas fell behind 1-0 before scoring 10 straight to improve to 9-0 when they score in double digits. Georgetown also improved to 6-1 when they hold their opponents to three runs or less.
In the second, Sean Baumann (Tampa, Fla./Freedom) was plunked and Tom Elliott (Blue Bell, Pa./St. Joseph's Prep) drew a walk. With one out, a well-executed double steal moved both runners to second and third. Andy Lentz (Farmington Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) pushed GU in front with a two-run double down the right-field line before senior Kelly Muir (South Pasadena, Calif./Loyola) extended his season-high hitting streak to 10 games with a RBI single.
In the third, Erick Fernandez (Hialeah, Fla./Hialeah) reached on an error by UMBC's third baseman and Lamont doubled to the right-center gap. With both runners now in scoring position, Elliott legged out a grounder to first for a RBI infield single. Then on an attempted steal of second by Elliott, the throw from the UMBC catcher went awry and Lamont trotted home to make the score, 5-1.
The Hoyas tacked on three more in the fourth to break the game open and take an 8-1 lead. Chip Malt (Boston, Mass./Buckingham Browne & Nichols) singled to center and Fernandez reached on a throwing error before Lamont's three-run blast. Malt finished the evening 3-for-5 with two runs scored and Lamont tied a season-high with three hits and recorded his 12th multi-RBI game, tops on the team this season.
Georgetown scored two more runs to hit the double-digit mark. Lamont hit a RBI double down the left-field line in the sixth to score Malt and Kevin Johnson (Peabody, Mass./Belmont Hill) picked up his first RBI as a Hoya with a sacrifice fly in the ninth that scored Nick Geary (Miami, Fla./Ransom Everglades). The freshman catcher got on base after hitting his first double in the Blue & Gray.
The Hoyas close their 2009 season on the road this weekend against Rutgers in a three-game BIG EAST series.
