WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University Baseball team concluded its fall season with a three-game intra-squad series this past weekend.
The Legends, led by volunteer assistant coach Mike Landry, found themselves in a six-run hole after the first two innings of game one but came out with a win after scoring eight runs in the sixth inning.
Led by a strong offensive showing from sophomore Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's), who had two doubles with two RBI and one run, Team Dynasty scored three runs in each of the first two innings. Junior Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) also had two hits in the game, and stole two bases that eventually helped him score two runs for Team Dynasty.
Junior left-handed pitcher Thomas Polus (Crown Point, Ind./Andrean) dominated the first half of the game, shutting down the Legend's offense for the first four innings and striking out five while surrendering only one hit.
Neither team scored in the third, fourth or fifth innings as pitching and defense seemed to dominate the middle of the game. Legend's pitchers Billy Cosmopulos (Seekonk, Ma./Moses Brown[R.I.]) and Patrick Camporini (Safety Harbor, Fla. /Clearwater Central Catholic) combined for three innings of scoreless relief as Team Dynasty's offensive explosion was extinguished, scratching only one hit.
Down 6-0 in the sixth inning of a 7-inning game, the Legends mounted a comeback. Dynasty pitching surrendered four hits and four walks in the inning as Legend's senior outfielder Rand Ravnaas (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints Episcopal) launched a grand slam over the right field fence to give his team an 8-6 lead.
Junior right-handed pitcher Charlie Steinman (Rockville Centre, N.Y./Chaminade) came in for the save and struck out the side to give the Legend's an 8-6 victory to conclude game one of the series.
