BETHESDA, Md. ? In its home opener Georgetown (5-9) surrendered six runs in the eighth inning to fall 13-8 to George Washington (14-4) at Shirley Povich Field Tuesday. Andrew Cleary (Weston, Mass./Belmont Hill School) led the Hoyas hitting 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and four RBI.
GW opened with three runs off three hits to take the early lead. Georgetown mounted a promising second, loading the bases on an error and walks to Robert O?Hare (San Jose, Calif./Archbishop Mitty) and Danny Gronski (Sammamish, Wash./Skyline) but the Colonials turned the double play to end the inning.
George Washington added two more in the third before the Hoyas finally struck with Timmy Jones (Ledgewood, N.J./Morristown) doubling to the wall in left and Matt Carullo (Oakton, Pa./Paul VI) moving him over to third. With two outs, Billy Quinn (Alta Loma, Calif./Alta Loma) slapped a sharp liner at the third baseman who bobbled it, allowing Jones to cross the plate for the Hoyas? first run.
Georgetown rallied again in the fifth, starting a two-out rally with singles by Quinn and Michael Lombardi (Brookhaven Hamlet, N.Y./St. Anthony?s), capped by Cleary?s third homerun of the season, bringing the Hoyas within one, 5-4. The Colonials responded in the sixth with two to widen the gap 7-4 but the Hoyas posted another two-out run when Carullo smacked an RBI single, closeing the gap to 7-5.
The Hoyas caught fire in the bottom of the seventh, starting things off with a walk for Lombardi and an RBI double off the scoreboard for Cleary. Ryan Craft (Jupiter, Fla./The Benjamin School) singled to move Cleary to third and Gronski took one for the team to put ducks on the pond with no outs. Jim Supple (Summit, N.J./St. Peter?s Prep) put the ball in play in the next at bat, scoring two runs before the Colonials could stop the bleeding - but not before the Hoyas could claim the lead 7-6.
With two on, Michael Halloran (Canton, N.Y./Williams) entered the game in relief, giving up a walk to load the bases before bearing down to strike out a pair of Colonials and give Georgetown a golden opportunity to take a lead into the ninth. Unfortunately GW had other ideas, exploding for six runs to make it 13-8 Colonials, wresting the lead from the home team.
Georgetown attempted to rally late, loading the bases in the ninth, but the five run deficit remained.
Galvin was saddled with the loss, his first of the season.
Georgetown takes on Coppin State Wednesday, March 19 at 2 p.m. in Baltimore.
