Box Score

WASHINGTON - After a seven inning pitchers duel, Drexel University finally broke a scoreless tie in the eighth, driving in three runs, to defeat Georgetown University 3-1 in its 2013 home opener at Guy Mason Field.

Today's game marked the first of eleven home games at Guy Mason Field this season for the Hoyas. Both teams were coming off of tournament weekends in the Carolinas.

Sophomore Lauren O"Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) was dominant in the first seven innings of the ballgame, allowing only two hits and zero runs. It was in the eighth inning when batters started to more easily recognize her pitches, resulting in three runs on four hits by the Drexel offense. O'Leary finished the game with 11 strikeouts and six hits allowed in the loss.

The Hoyas were also held in check through the first seven innings, with five hits and zero runs, by Drexel pitcher Tara Konopka. Georgetown scored their one run of the ballgame in the eighth inning as well.

Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heary Academy) led off the eighth with a bloop-single to left field and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Freshman Samantha Giovanniello (Floral Park, N.Y./Floral Park Memorial) singled up the middle to move Graziano to third in the next at-bat, which allowed Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) to bring her home with a sacrifice fly to right field. Georgetown ended the game with two runners left on base.

Coach Conlan acknowledged the strong pitching by Drexel, but also knows the hitting must improve if the Hoyas want to keep winning; "I think we were letting their pitcher dictate what we were doing at the plate, and a good pitcher will do that... Bottom line is you have got to put up runs if you want to win ballgames, and we are not doing that very well right now."

 

 

Georgetown will stay in the DMV area for their next set of games, which will be in Baltimore, Md. at the UMBC Tournament on March 16th and March 17th.
