April 18, 2013
WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University baseball team travels to South Orange, N.J. this weekend to face Seton Hall in a pivotal weekend series as the Hoyas work to secure a berth in this year's BIG EAST baseball Championship.
The first game of the three-game series starts on Friday, April 19, with first pitch slated for 3 p.m. The teams will also play on Saturday, April 20 (1 p.m.) before closing out the series on Sunday, April 21 (1 p.m.).
This series pits the Hoyas, who currently rank 7th in BIG EAST standings (4-5), against the 6th ranked Pirates (5-4). The top eight teams qualify for the BIG EAST Tournament, held May 22nd-26th.
Georgetown enters the weekend with a 21-13 record overall, with a 5-3 road mark. This is the first road BIG EAST series for the Hoyas this season, as the first three BIG EAST weekends have been played at Shirley Povich field in Bethesda, Md.
The Hoyas are coming off an extra-inning win against George Mason on Tuesday. Georgetown scored two runs in the top of the 10th inning to break an 8-all tie to win 10-9. Freshman catcher Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) finished the day 2-for-3 with three RBI and senior outfielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) went 2-for-3 with one RBI. Freshman Jordan Chudacoff (Highland Park, Ill./New Trier) pitched the 10th inning to pick up his first career save, while Charles Steinman (Rockville Center, N.Y./Chaminade) earned the win.
Seton Hall enters the contest with an 18-15 record overall, with a 8-2 home mark. Georgetown took one out of three games last season, when the series was played at Shirley Povich Field.
Senior Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart) leads the Georgetown offense batting .362. Leeson has also been strong batting .326 with 19 RBI, while Collins is hitting .310 also with 19 RBI. Junior Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's) leads the team with 26 RBI and four home runs.
Pitching has been strong all year for the Hoyas, led by Jack Vander Linden (Dallas, Texas/Episcopal) who was named to last week's BIG EAST Honor Roll, and boasts a 3-1 record with a 2.80 earned run average.
The Hoya bullpen has been stellar this year, with Steinman thriving in the closer role, recording 7 saves with a team-best 1.61 ERA. Senior Neal Dennison (Houston, Texas/Lamar) has a 1.78 earned run average, carrying a 2-0 record in 30.1 innings pitched, and often setting up the save for Steinman. Freshman Tim Davis (Vienna, Va./James Madison) is 1-0 with a 2.42 earned run average in 13 appearances.
