WASHINGTON - Sophomore pitcher Charles Steinman (Rockville Centre, N.Y./Chaminade) gave up one run on five hits in seven innings of relief, but Georgetown lost its second-straight one-run game, losing to Seton Hall, 3-2, at Owen T Carroll Field in South Orange, N.J.

It was the fifth-straight loss for the Hoyas, who fall to 23-32 overall and 5-21 in league play, while Seton Hall improves to 28-23 overall and 13-13 in the BIG EAST. The one-run loss was the 10th time the Hoyas had lost a game in BIG EAST play by one or two runs.

Seton Hall wasted no time, taking the lead in the first inning after redshirt junior Tommy Isaacs (Ponte Vedre Beach, Fla./Bolles) walked two batters and gave up a single to load the bases with one out. A wild pitch brought in the first run and a ground out made it 2-0.

Steinman came on in relief in the second and retired the side in order. He gave up two singles in the third but was able to work out and then allowed a two-out single in the fourth.

The Hoyas knocked on the door in the first two innings, but could not plate a run. Sophomore Corbin Blakey (Alpharetta, Ga./Centennial) hit a leadoff single in the first, but was caught stealing and senior catcher Erick Fernandez (Hialeah, Fla./Hialeah) was left stranded after a two-out single. The Hoyas had another chance when sophomore shortstop Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./The Overlake School) hit a one-out double, but Seton Hall starter Jon Prosinski got out of the inning without a run.

Georgetown cut the lead to 2-1 in the fourth when junior right fielder Rand Ravnaas (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints' Episcopal) singled to center, scoring sophomore left fielder Paul Bello (Towaca, N.J./Delbarton), who hit a leadoff bunt single and moved to second on a ground ball from Blakey.

The Pirates scored what proved to be the decisive run in the fifth when Steinman gave up a single to Mike Genovese, plating Will Walsh, who had been hit by a pitch to start the inning and moved to second on a bunt.

Georgetown would pull to within 3-2 in the seventh when Bello hit a run-scoring single with two out to drive in Poplawski after he reached base on an error.

That was as close as the Hoyas would get. Fernandez was issued a two-out walk in the eighth and pinch-runner Max Friedman (Wilmington, Del./The Hill School) stole second, but Seton Hall closer recorded a strikeout for the final out of the inning and struck out three more batters in the ninth to close out the game.

Isaacs took the loss, falling to 3-3 this season, while Steinman went 7.0 innings and gave up one run on five hits with one walk and four strikeouts.

Georgetown plays its final regular season game of the season on Saturday, May 21. First pitch on the Seton Hall campus is slated for 1 p.m.
