WASHINGTON - Georgetown raced back from a five-run deficit to tie the game and had the go-ahead in scoring position in the seventh and eighth innings and the tying run at second in the ninth, but could not capitalize as Cincinnati held on to beat the Hoyas in a BIG EAST Conference baseball game at Marge Schott Stadium in Cincinnati on Friday evening.
It was the second-straight loss for the Hoyas, who fall to 23-29 overall and 9-17 in the BIG EAST, while UC improves to 18-37 overall and 7-19 in league play.
Georgetown fell behind early, as junior starter Neal Dennison (Houston, Texas/Lamar) was roughed up for seven runs (five earned) on eight hits over 4.0 innings as the Bearcats took a 7-2 lead midway through the game. The Hoyas responded with a five-run sixth inning to tie the game and had runners in scoring position in each of the final three innings but could not capitalize.
In the seventh, junior third baseman Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart) walked and stole second before redshirt junior shortstop Mike Garza (San Antonio, Texas/Douglas MacArthur) was intentionally walked to put two runners on with two outs. UC reliever Christian McElroy induced a grounder to third from senior right fielder Rand Ravnaas (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints' Episcopal) to end the inning.
Despite a leadoff walk in the bottom of the inning, junior pitcher Charles Steinman (Rockville Centre, N.Y./Chaminade) worked his way out of the inning thanks to a double play started by Garza. In the top of the eighth, the Hoyas had runners on the corners with one out after senior catcher Kevin Johnson (Peabody, Mass./Belmont Hill) reached on an error and sophomore Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland) singled, but McElroy induced pop ups from junior left fielder Paul Bello (Towaca, N.J./Delbarton) and senior second baseman Andy Lentz (Farmington Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) to end the inning.
The Bearcats responded immediately in the bottom of the inning, with a single from Ethan McAlpine and a double from Nic Spence putting runners on second and third with one out. After a walk to load the bases, T.J. Jones hit an RBI single to drive in the winning run. Steinman struck out the final two batters to end the threat.
In the ninth, junior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) hit a leadoff single and stole second with none out, but McElroy retired the next three batters to close out the game.
Steinman took the loss, throwing 3.0 innings and giving up one run on three hits, with three walks and four strikeouts, as he fell to 5-4 this season.
Georgetown closes out the regular season on Saturday, May 19, with first pitch slated for 1 p.m.
