Starting pitcher Eduardo Pena (Miami, Fla./Michael Krop) gave up two to the Midshipmen in their half of the first to put the Hoyas at an early disadvantage, but the Hoya bats quickly responded: Andrew Cleary (Weston, Mass./Belmont Hill School) produced a solo home run to left center in the top of the second and centerfielder Timmy Jones (Ledgewood, N.J./Morristown) launched a two-run blast in the third to put the Hoyas up 3-2.
In the fourth and fifth innings the two teams matched each other perfectly. On its turn in the fourth Georgetown put up one run as Ron Cano (El Segundo, Calif./El Segundo) singled with two outs to score freshman Ryan Craft (Jupiter, Fla./The Benjamin School), but Navy retaliated in the bottom of the inning with a run of its own. Still looking to expand on its one-run lead, Georgetown promptly scored again in the fifth, this time off a single from Robert O?Hare (San Jose, Calif./Archbishop Mitty) that brought home Billy Quinn (Alta Loma, Calif./Alta Loma), but Navy brought another man across homeplate in turn. The exchange left the Hoyas ahead only 5-4 going into the sixth inning.
In his final inning of work Pena struck out two and blanked the Midshipmen. He was replaced with Kevin Field (
Field pitched well in the eighth, permitting only one hit and no runs.
The ninth inning. The Hoyas, ahead by only a thin 6-5 margin, were unable to get their rally going and so provided no insurance runs. In the bottom of the ninth, Navy managed to get two runs off of closing pitcher Michael Halloran (Canton, N.Y./Williams), dealing Georgetown a 6-7 loss in the closest of contests.
