March 23, 2013

Box Score

WASHINGTON - Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) threw a complete game, five hit shutout in game one, and came in to close out the seventh inning in game two, to help lead the Hoyas in two wins over Villanova University.

Georgetown used strong pitching, great defense and early scoring to win 2-0 and 2-1 over the Wildcats in a doubleheader at Guy Mason Field on Saturday afternoon. The wins extended the Hoya win streak to five games and gave them a 2-0 record in BIG EAST conference play.

O'Leary pitched her fifth consecutive complete game while earning her seventh win of the season in a five hit, nine strikeout performance in the first game of the day. The sophomore got out of a bases loaded jam in the third with a big strikeout to end the inning and would not allow another batter to get past first base for the remainder of the game. Her biggest inning of the day would not come until the bottom of the seventh in game two.

Up 2-1, O'Leary entered the game in relief for sophomore Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) to face the Wildcats with runners on first and second with no outs. O'Leary struck out one batter, forced another to fly out to right field, and after loading the bases, finally closed out the game by forcing a line out to left field. Hyson pitched six innings and only allowed one run to pick up the win in game two.

Junior Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) provided the run support on offense, driving in three of the four Hoya runs on the day.

Shikara Lowe (Beaverton, Ore./Jesuit) singled and Alexandria Antilla (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) doubled in the bottom of the first inning in game two to put runners on second and third. As the next batter up, Slovacek singled to right center field, good for two RBIs and the 2-0 lead. Villanova scored a run in the top of the second but the Hoyas maintained their lead for the rest of the game.

 

 

Slovacek earned a bases loaded walk in the top of the first inning of game one to give Georgetown the permanent lead. Hyson had an RBI single in the third inning to make it 2-0 where the score would remain.

Georgetown plays its final game of the series against Villanova on Sunday, March 24 at Guy Mason Field. First pitch is slated for 12:00 p.m.
