DAVIDSON, N.C. ? The Georgetown baseball team picked up its first win of the 2004 season Saturday at Davidson, taking the second game of a doubleheader after dropping its first match in the bottom of the last inning.
Down to its last out in the first game of the doubleheader, Davidson got a clutch two-run single from sophomore Jay Heafner, who lifted the Wildcats to a 5-4 victory in Davidson?s opening game of the season. But the Hoyas (1-3) rebounded in the nightcap with a 4-3, 10-inning triumph over the Wildcats.
The Hoyas scored an unearned run in the top of the seventh inning to take a 4-3 lead in game one, but the Wildcats got consecutive one-out singles to knock out Georgetown's starting pitcher, Warren Sizemore (Hamilton, Ohio/ Ross). Reliever Michael Halloran (Canton, N.Y./ Williams) walked the next batter to load the bases, then struck out freshman Rob Wilson for the second out. Heafner then delivered his game-winning single to give Davidson a victory in its first game of the season for just the second time in the past eight years.
Heafner (1-0) also picked up the victory in his collegiate debut on the mound, after getting the final two outs in the top of the seventh. Sizemore (0-2) took the loss for the Hoyas.
Four Hoyas collected one hit in game one of the doubleheader, and Timmy Jones (Ledgewood, N.J./ Morristown) scored two of Georgetown's four runs.
In game two, the Hoyas jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the third inning on a bases-loaded single by Andrew Cleary (Weston, Mass./ Belmont Hill) and a sacrifice fly by Jones. The Wildcats responded with two runs in the bottom of the fourth.
Davidson took a brief 3-2 lead in the fifth when freshman Alden Crissey singled, stole second and went to third on an errant throw, then came home on senior Brett Peiffer's grounder to second. In the top of the sixth, Danny Gronski (Sammamish, Wash./ Skyline) tied the game with one swing of the bat for his second homer of the year.
Georgetown broke the deadlock in the 10th without the aid of a hit as Davidson pitchers walked the bases loaded with one out. Sophomore Drew Dargen (Edmond, Okla./ Edmond North) worked the count to 2-2 before being plunked by a slider that got away from junior Justin Hartanov to force in the winning run. The Wildcats got a one-out walk in their half, but the game ended on a strike-him-out-throw-him-out double play.
Dargen went 3-for-4 with an RBI to lead GU's 12-hit attack, while five Wildcats each had one hit.
Freshman Erick Chandler (Somerset, N.J./ Rutgers Prep) picked up his first collegiate victory by hurling four shutout innings of relief, yielding just one hit and three walks while striking out seven. Sophomore Matt Meade (0-1) was stuck with the loss in his collegiate debut for the Wildcats.
The two teams will conclude their three-game series on Sunday afternoon. Game time at Wildcat Park is set for 1 p.m.
