Box Score

HANOVER, Md.  - The Georgetown baseball team fell to the Coppin State College Eagles, 12-0, on the road Wednesday afternoon in a non-conference game.

With the win, Coppin State (10-22) ended a nine-game losing streak, and recorded the school’s first non-conference shutout victory against a Division I opponent. Georgetown, meanwhile, fell to 18-17 on the year.

Coppin State’s Teon Richburg drove in a game-high four runs on two home runs and Bryan Crossley tallied a season-high seven strikeouts on the mound for the Eagles.

Richburg set the tone early when he delivered with a two-out three-run home run to right-center field in the first inning to put the Eagles up 3-0. He would later add a solo shot, his third home run of the season, down the left field line in the fourth inning to give Coppin State a 10-run advantage.

Twice, Georgetown threatened with runners on first and third, but Crossley struck out the final Georgetown batters in each the second and sixth innings to preserve the shutout.

Crossley surrendered three hits and two walks in seven innings of work to improve to 2-4. Travis Danysh (San Antonio, Texas/ Alamo Heights) received the loss for Georgetown and fell to 3-3 on the season. He allowed seven runs on seven hits, with two strikeouts.

Georgetown returns to action on April 8 with a home doubleheader against Virginia Tech. The first pitch is scheduled for noon at Shirley Povich Field.
