GLEN BURNIE, Md. ? Seven runs in the last three innings broke a Wednesday afternoon deadlock as Georgetown (6-9) defeated Coppin State (3-10) 11-5 in baseball action at the Bachman Complex.
A four-run ninth and excellent pitching from Kevin Field (Moorestown, N.J./Moorestown) and his relievers helped the Hoyas earn the victory. Field pitched seven innings, surrendering all four of his runs in the fourth while striking out nine for his first win. Billy Quinn (Alta Loma, Calif./Alta Loma) sparked the Hoya bats in the ninth with an RBI triple, his second of the day, en route to a four run ninth for Georgetown and a 3-for-3 performance on the afternoon.
The first three scoreless innings featured solid pitching and fielding for both teams. Field began the game strong, striking out three through three innings, catching one baserunner stealing, and turning a 1-6-3 double play in the second.
Georgetown was the first on the board thanks to a bases loaded run-scoring single for Robert O?Hare and a double by Ryan Craft (Jupiter, Fla./The Benjamin School), bringing two across the plate. Coppin State countered in its half of the fourth with four runs off of four hits to take the lead 4-3.
The Hoyas tied it up in the sixth when, with two outs, Timmy Jones (Ledgewood, N.J./Morristown) manufactured his own run, reaching base on an error by the centerfielder and advancing to second. Jones then stole third and scored on an errant throw from the catcher to make it 4-4.
Field retired the next three in a row in the Eagles? half of the sixth and Georgetown scored another run in the seventh and two in the eighth to build a 7-4 lead. Field continued to dominate the Coppin State batters, striking out three in a row in the seventh before being relieved by Kevin Lundquist (Oley, Pa./The Hill School).
Coppin State added one in the eighth to cut the lead to 7-5 until Andrew Cleary (Weston, Mass./Belmont Hill School) led off with a walk and Quinn slapped his second triple of the game to score a run. Michael Lombardi (Brookhaven Hamlet, N.Y./St. Anthony?s) handcuffed the second baseman, reaching safely and bringing Quinn across the plate and Danny Gronski (Sammamish, Wash./Skyline) doubled to score two. After all was said and done the Hoyas stood atop an 11-5 lead.
Ted Oberwager (Bryn Mawr, Pa./The Episcopal School) entered in the ninth, striking out two of the three batters he faced to earn Field the win. Quinn?s two triples tie a school record for most in a single game, sharing the mark with Roger Harrington who hit two triples in 1995 and two in 1994, both against Coppin State.
Georgetown hosts the University of Connecticut in a weekend series Saturday March 22 and Sunday March 23. Saturday?s doubleheader and Sunday?s series finale will commence at noon on Shirley Povich Field in Bethesda.
