WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University baseball team (2-2, 0-0 BIG EAST) hosts George Mason University (3-3, 0-0 CAA) on Wednesday afternoon at Shirley Povich Field, with first pitch scheduled for 3 p.m. It will be the Hoyas home-opener and first of 20 scheduled home contests during the 2013 season.

Wednesday's game will be broadcast live on Hoyavision, accessible through the Georgetown University Athletics official website - www.guhoyas.com - with Tim Shovers calling the action. Pitch-by-pitch updates will also be available through GameTracker on the Hoyas website.

Georgetown enters its home-opener after consecutive wins over Lafayette and Davidson at the Davidson Tournament over the weekend. Junior Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's School) hit a three-run home run went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and redshirt sophomore Jack VanderLinden (Dallas, Texas/Episcopal) tossed 5.0 innings, allowing two unearned runs and one hit with five strikeouts to earn an 8-3 win over the Leopards.

Against Davidson, the Hoyas came back from three runs down, scoring one run in each the fourth and fifth innings, before a three-run seventh inning helped them take the lead for good. Sophomore second baseman Danny Poplawski (Bellevue, Wash./The Overlake School) went 4-for-4 with two runs and an RBI in the, 8-4 victory over the Wildcats.

Poplawski is batting .533 (8-for-15) with four doubles and four runs, through four games this season, as senior centerfielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) is batting .400 (6-for-15) with three runs and three RBI's in four games to lead the offense.

On the mound, VanderLinden is 1-0 in two starts with a 2.79 earned run average, while striking out nine in 9.2 innings. Senior RHP Neal Dennison (Houston, Texas/Lamar), senior RHP Charles Steinman (Rockville Centre, N.Y./Chaminade) and senior RHP James Heine (Chapel Hill, N.C./East Chapel Hill) have combined to span 8.0 innings of relief without allowing an earned run.
