May 14, 2013
WASHINGTON - Georgetown jumped out to a 4-2 lead after six innings, but the University of Maryland-Baltimore County scored four times in the seventh inning and held on for a 6-5 win over the Hoyas at Alumni Field in Baltimore Tuesday night.
It was the seventh-straight loss for the Hoyas, who fall to 25-25 overall, while the Retrievers improved to 17-27 overall.
The Blue & Gray held a 4-2 lead going into the bottom of the seventh inning, but sophomore reliever Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca) hit the first two batters and gave up an infield single to load the bases before a single from Kevin LaChance brought in two runs to tie the game. A double from Anthony Gatto put runners on second and third and a groundout broke the tie and a single from Manny Colon pushed the UMBC lead to 6-4.
The Hoyas narrowed the gap to 6-5 in the eighth when junior right fielder Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's) hit a sacrifice fly to right, bringing home freshman Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's), who had drawn a one-out walk, moved to second on a single from freshman Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) and moved to third on a wild pitch. A walk to junior first baseman Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland) put runners on first and second, but UMBC recorded the final batter to get out of the inning.
Senior Corbin Blakey (Alpharetta, Ga./Centennial) hit a leadoff single in the ninth and moved to second on a bunt from senior left fielder Paul Bello (Towaca, N.J./Delbarton), but UMBC's Kevin Ladner induced a ground out and a fly ball to end the inning.
Brown took the loss for the Hoyas, throwing 3.1 innings and giving up four runs on five hits with no walks and one strikeout as he fell to 3-2 this season.
Freshman Jordan Chudacoff (Highland Park, Ill./New Trier) started and went 3.1 innings, giving up two unearned runs on one hit with four walks and three strikeouts in a no-decision. Freshman Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) threw a scoreless eighth inning.
The Hoyas had jumped out to an early lead with single runs in the first two innings. In the first, senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) hit a leadoff single, moved to third when Webber reached on an error and scored when Venditti doubled down the left field line. Senior second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./Overlake) was hit by a pitch to load the bases, but that was all GU would get.
In the second, freshman Curtiss Pomeroy (Shrewsbury, Mass./St. John's) hit a one-out single, moved to second on a ground out from Leeson and scored when Collins hit a single to right, giving GU a 2-1 lead.
The Georgetown lead grew to 4-1 in the fourth. Pomeroy hit a leadoff double and runners were on the corners after a walk to Webber. A single from Collins brought in Pomeroy, with Webber moving to third and coming home on an error.
UMBC scored an unearned run in the fourth to cut the lead to 4-2 before scoring four times in the seventh to take the lead for good.
The Hoyas had 10 hits and UMBC walked six batters, but Georgetown left 14 men on base in the loss.
Georgetown is back in action on Thursday, May 16, hosting Villanova for the start of a three-game series to wrap up the regular season. First pitch at Shirley Povich Field is slated for 7 p.m.
