Kelly Muir stole a base and drove in a run as the Hoyas beat Rutgers, 5-2.
May 15, 2009
Washington, D.C. - In possibly his best outing of the season, starter Tim Adleman won his team-high fourth game of the year this afternoon as Georgetown (17-33, 8-17 BE) defeated Rutgers (21-31, 7-19 BE), 5-2. The junior right-hander allowed two runs over eight innings and struck out six batters as the Hoyas snapped an 11-game losing streak to the Scarlet Knights and surpassed their BIG EAST win total from last season.
Today's game marked the fourth- straight start for Adleman in which he struck out at least six batters. Coming into the weekend, he was fifth in the conference with 60 strikeouts. Jared Cohen picked up his second save of the season with a shut-out ninth inning.
The Hoyas struck early with two runs in the first to take a led. Tommy Lee singled through the right side to start the game and advanced to second on a groundout. With two outs, Sean Lamont was plunked to prolong the inning and Sean Baumann made Rutgers pay with a two-run double to center.
After Rutgers scored to get on the board, Georgetown scored a run apiece in the next three innings to take a 5-1 lead. During the third, Lee drew a lead-off walk and Malt extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a RBI double to left-center.
Andy Lentz started things off with a single through the left side in the fourth before Kelly Muir was hit by a pitch. A fly-out to foul territory allowed Lentz to tag and take third, which was followed by Muir stealing second. After that, consecutive walks to Malt and Erick Fernandez forced in a run.
For the third-consecutive inning, the Hoyas initiated things by getting on base when Baumann singled to start the fifth. With two outs, Greg Pustizzi singled to center field and senior classmate Kelly Muir followed with a run-scoring single to right.
The Hoyas close the 2009 season tomorrow afternoon as they go for the series win at 1 p.m. against Rutgers.
