Rollins College Rainout Rematch Grants Georgetown Baseball Win Number Two

March 11, 2003

Box Score

WINTER PARK, Fla.  ? In a Monday afternoon rematch with the Rollins College Tars, Georgetown powered itself to an 8-3 win at the Rollins Baseball Week, running their record to 1-1 in the tournament. 

Georgetown starter Warren Sizemore (Hamilton, Ohio/Ross) took to the mound for the second game against the host Tars already leading the team in ERA and recording the Hoyas? first win of the 2003 campaign.  Sizemore pitched the complete game, allowing twelve hits and two earned runs while striking out a pair for his second win of the season.  Trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the third, Billy Quinn responded with a two out grand slam and Georgetown never lost the lead, tacking on three more in the eighth to seal the deal.  Quinn?s blast was his second home run of the season.  Parker Brooks (Las Vegas, Nev./Bishop Gorman) and Matt Carullo (Oakton, Va./Paul VI) led the team in hits with three apiece, driving in one and two runs respectively.   

Sizemore allowed just one hit over the first two innings before Rollins struck for two runs in the third to put the home team up 2-0.  Timmy Jones (Ledgewood, N.J./Morristown) grounded out to second to lead off the Hoyas? side before Brooks, Carullo and Andrew Cleary (Weston, Mass./Belmont Hill School) loaded the bases for Quinn?s four-run blast.

Sizemore continued to frustrate the Tars hitters until the sixth where two single and a hit batsman loaded the bases with no outs.  An error allowed one run to score, but Sizemore retired three in a row to keep the Hoyas ahead 4-3.  In Georgetown?s half of the sixth, unselfish play put Danny Gronski (Sammamish, Wash./Skyline) in scoring position allowing Brooks to single him in for the fifth Georgetown run.  Gronski reached base by being hit by a pitch and Ron Cano (El Segundo, Calif./El Segundo) moved him into scoring position with his fifth sac hit of the season.

Sizemore continued to dominate, allowing just one hit into the Rollins ninth, boosted by three more Georgetown runs in the eighth.  Carullo scored Jones and Gronski on a sharp single and Cleary reached base on an error by the shortstop to bring in Brooks for the second time.

Leading 8-3 in the ninth, Sizemore took the ball needing three outs for his second win in three appearances.  The Tars put two on before Sizemore served up a 6-4-3 double-play ball following it with a groundout to Gronski to end the ball game. 

Sizemore lowered his ERA to 2.89 with the victory.
