Box Score

FAIRFAX, Va. - Despite a late rally, Georgetown baseball (9-29) dropped a closely contested game Wednesday, falling 10-9 to George Mason (25-12) on Spuhler Field.

Michael Lombardi (Brookhaven Hamlet, N.Y./St. Anthony's) led off the first with a two-run shot to put the Hoyas up 2-0 but Mason chipped away at the lead with a run of its own to close the gap to 2-1 after one.  Mason piled on five in the third and three in the fifth to vault into the lead, 9-2.

Georgetown put the first five on in the sixth and Timmy Jones (Ledgewood, N.J./Morristown) scored on a bases-loaded balk before Andrew Cleary (Weston, Mass./Belmont Hill School) stepped up and crushed his tenth home-run of the season to clear the bases and pull the Hoyas within three, 9-6.

Mason added a single in the sixth to extend the lead to 10-6 but a hot Hoya eighth led by Billy Quinn's (Alta Loma, Calif./Alta Loma) RBI single and a pinch-hit RBI double for Robert O'Hare (San Jose, Calif./Archbishop Mitty) to give Mason the 10-9 advantage. 

Mason's closer entered in the ninth and shut the Hoyas out to earn the save and preserve the victory.

Hoya starter Tyler Abbott (Shoreline, Wash./Shorewood) absorbed the loss.

Georgetown takes on Navy in Anapolis on Thursday, April 24 at 3:30 p.m.
