Box Score

BETHESDA, Md. ? Georgetown (7-23, 1-14) hitters struggled for the second game in a row against St. John?s (17-15, 7-3), registering just five hits on Sunday in an 8-0 loss at Shirley Povich Field.  The loss earns the weekend sweep for the Red Storm.       

Smart fielding kept St. John?s off the board in the first as Georgetown turned its second wacky double play of the weekend, a 4-6-4 at second to force the runner and a quick strike from Matt Carullo (Oakton, Va./Paul VI) to third for the tag.  In the second Andrew Cleary (Weston, Mass./Belmont Hill School) took away a sure double, catching a deep fly and bouncing off the wall in left for the out.    

Not to be outdone, the Red Storm flashed a little D of its own, picking off a Hoya runner on first and turning a more conventional 6-4-3 double play in the second to keep Georgetown off the board.

St. John?s struck first in the third with a leadoff home run to stake the Storm to a 1-0 lead.  Starter Warren Sizemore (Hamilton, Ohio/Ross) coaxed SJU into three outs to end the inning but gave up another leadoff dinger in the fourth, extending the Red Storm lead to 2-0. 

Two errors in the fifth gifted St. John?s its third run of the game but Georgetown maintained its composure and snuffed out the Red Storm?s chances.  The Hoyas put two on in the GU fifth with Cleary drawing a walk and Robert O?Hare (San Jose, Calif./Archbishop Mitty) singling to right, but a strikeout and two deep flies muzzled the threat.

The St. John?s solo act continued in the sixth as the third one-run homer of the game put the Red Storm up 4-0 with one out.  Two walks and a hit batsman set the table for an RBI single to short for a 5-0 GU deficit in the bottom of the sixth.

Michael Lombardi (Brookhaven Hamlet, N.Y./St. Anthony?s) doubled off the wall in left during the seventh but the Hoyas stranded two to continue their offensive drought.

Kevin Galvin (Cherry Hill, N.J./Bishop Eustace Prep) took the ball in the eighth, walking the first two batters before settling down to fan three in a row.  Kevin Lundquist (Oley, Pa./The Hill School) stepped in to close the ninth but the floodgates opened with two hits including a leadoff triple, three wild pitches, and a two-run homer, staking St. John?s to a 8-0 lead.  The Hoyas were blanked in the ninth, handing Sizemore (3-4) the loss.

Georgetown returns to action on Tuesday, April 15 in a doubleheader against Coppin State.  First pitch is at 3 p.m.
