Box Score

BETHESDA, Md. ? In the final row of a three game series, Georgetown (6-12, 1-5) fell to the UConn Huskies (7-8, 3-0) 6-4 Sunday at Shirley Povich Field.

Georgetown and UConn traded the lead early until an unfortunate fifth gave the Huskies a two-run surplus.  Despite some promising chances late, Georgetown could not break back into the game, dropping the final game of the series with UConn.

Warren Sizemore (Hamilton, Ohio/Ross) retired the first three batters he faced thanks to a pretty 4-6-3 double play and Andrew Cleary (Weston, Mass./Belmont Hill School) drove an RBI single through the left side in the Hoyas? half to put Georgetown up 1-0 in the first frame.  Georgetown turned two once again in the second, keeping the Huskies scoreless through three.

UConn managed to marshal an unearned run in the fourth, tying the score at 1-1 while Dan Trubia?s solo home run in the fifth and a sacrifice fly gave the Huskies two more, staking them to a 3-1 lead.

Georgetown rallied in the fifth with a double off the wall from Matt Carullo (Oakton, Va./Paul VI) and, with two outs, Cleary launched one to left field to tie the score at 3-3.  The Huskies brought two more across the plate on a GU fielding error to reclaim the lead, 5-3 after six.  UConn manufactured another run before the seventh inning stretch to extend the margin to 6-3.

Georgetown stranded two in the bottom of the seventh but a leadoff home run for Robert O?Hare (San Jose, Calif./Archbishop Mitty) in the eighth pulled the Hoyas within two, 6-4.  Unfortunately for the home side, closer Mike James retired three in a row in GU?s final at-bats to end the game.

Sizemore pitched five and two-thirds, giving up two hits and suffering his first lost of the season. 

Georgetown hosts UMBC in the next game on Wednesday, March 26 at 3 p.m. on Shirley Povich Field.
