WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University baseball team will be back in action on Tuesday, April 24, hosting local rival George Mason. First pitch at Shirley Povich Field is slated for 7 p.m.

The game will be a rematch of a game earlier this season, as the Patriots came from behind to beat the Hoyas, 12-8, in Fairfax, Va. Live video of the game - with Tim Murray calling all of the action - will be available on the Georgetown Athletics website, with Tim Murray calling all of the action on www.guhoyas.com.

Georgetown enters the game following a weekend series at home against Notre Dame. The Hoyas are 18-21 overall and 5-10 in the BIG EAST Conference.

Redshirt junior shortstop Mike Garza (San Antonio, Texas/Douglas MacArthur).leads the team in batting with a .375 average (60-for-160, and has a team-best 14 doubles, with two triples, and leads the team with five home runs and 29 RBI.

Last month, Georgetown scored five runs in the top of the second inning to take an early 5-0 lead, but George Mason took advantage of three errors and scored six unearned runs over the first four innings en route to a 12-8 win. The Hoyas jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the second inning, thanks to a two-run double from senior Rand Ravnaas (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints' Episcopal) and a two-run home run from Garza.

Sophomore starter Alex Baker (Charlotte, N.C./Ardrey Kell) gave up two unearned runs in the third and the Patriots added five more runs, four of them unearned, in the fourth to take the lead for good, 7-5. George Mason extended its lead to 9-5 in the fifth with a pair of runs off freshman Will Brown (Chesterfield, Va./Matoaca).

 

 

Baker took the loss for the Hoyas, throwing 3.2 innings and giving up seven runs (one earned) on five hits, with three walks and one strikeout.
