West Virginia Hurlers Silence Georgetown Bats in BIG EAST Baseball

Box Score Game One

Box Score Game Two

BETHESDA, Md. - West Virginia?s (26-11, 10-2) pitching stymied Georgetown (9-28, 1-19) in both games of a doubleheader Monday as the Mountaineers prevailed 5-0 and 9-2 on Hawley Field. 

West Virginia?s Jason DiAngelo pitched a complete game one-hit shutout in the first meeting, a seven inning affair, and Mountaineer Zac Cline threw a complete game eight-hitter in the series finale to cool Georgetown?s bats.

Billy Quinn (Alta Loma, Calif./Alta Loma) hit his third home run in four games to drive in Georgetown?s only runs of the second game, going 3-for-6 in both games with a walk. 

Hoya starter Pat Salvitti (North Wales, Pa./La Salle College) took the mound in the first game, battling DiAngelo in the early going.  The Hoyas led off with two walks but both men were picked off and caught stealing to end the threat.  Salvitti responded with three strikeouts in the first to keep it even. 

West Virginia issued the third pass of the first two innings to Andrew Cleary (Weston, Mass./Belmont Hill School) who found himself stranded on first after three outs.  Three Mountaineer singles later and West Virginia led 2-0, tacking on two more in the fifth and an insurance run in the sixth, to give them the 5-0 edge.  The only Hoya hit of the game, Quinn?s single, occurred in the fifth, spoiling DiAngelo?s no-hit bid.

In the second game Georgetown led off the second with another pass for Cleary before Quinn homered to left center to stake the Hoyas to a 2-0 lead.  West Virginia jumped back in front after a productive second inning of its own, putting four across to make it 4-2 Mountaineers.  WVU added another run in the third, one in the sixth, and three in the seventh to sweep the series finale, 9-2.

Georgetown plays George Mason on Wednesday, April 23 at 3 p.m. in Fairfax, Virginia.
