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.

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.
GEORGE MASON: The Patriots enter Wednesday's game with a 3-3 record after a three-game sweep of Iona College this past weekend, outscoring the Gaels 30-8. Junior catcher Tucker Tobin leads GMU's offense, batting .480 with two home runs and nine RBI's. Tobin is one of four Patriots' starters batting over .440. George Mason leads the all-time series with Georgetown 29-11.
