Final Stats

BALTIMORE - UMBC hit three home runs to come-from-behind and defeat the Georgetown University baseball team, 8-5, on Tuesday evening in a nonconference game at UMBC’s Alumni Field. With the loss, the Hoyas drop to 27-25 overall, while the Retrievers improve to 19-21 on the season.

Zach Racusin (Morristown, N.J./Salisbury School/Marist) finished with three hits and four RBI to lead the offense. Beau Hall (Seaville, N.J./Ocean City) had two hits, and Michael DeRenzi (Mendham, N.J./Seton Hall Prep) scored two runs.

Nick Leonard (Washington, D.C./Maret) started on the mound and went five innings, allowing six runs, one earned on eight hits. Brent Killam (Nokomis, Fla./Venice) got two big outs, including one strikeout, while Jordan Chudacoff (Highland Park, Ill./New Trier/Lawrenceville [N.J.]) pitched a scoreless innings with two strikeouts.

The Hoyas jumped on the board quickly in the top of the first. DeRenzi led off with a walk and came all the way around to score on a double by Racusin into the right-center field gap. With two outs, Sammy Stevens (Birmingham, Mich./Brother Rice) lined a double into the left field corner to plate Racusin and give GU an early 2-0 advantage.

The lead doubled to 4-0 in the top of the second inning. Ryan Weisenberg (Parkland, Fla./San Ramon Valley [Calif.]) led things off with a walk and went to third with two outs on a single by DeRenzi. Racusin followed with a two-run single into right field, scoring both runners.

 

 

The Retrievers got a run back with a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning and then cut the Georgetown lead to one, 4-3, with a two-run double in the fourth inning. A three-run homer in the fifth and another two-run shot in the sixth gave UMBC an 8-4 lead.

An RBI ground out by Racusin in the eighth, scoring Hall who had led off the inning with a single, cut the deficit to 8-5, but that was as close as the Hoyas would get.

Georgetown will conclude the 2017 season with a three-game, BIG EAST series at Xavier this weekend. The series will open on Thursday afternoon at 3 p.m. Friday’s matchup will also begin at 3 p.m. while Saturday’s finale is set for noon.
