Box Score

WASHINGTON - After going up 5-0 in the first inning, Georgetown (17-26, 7-6) allowed Syracuse (14-22, 2-7) to tie up the game in the 9th inning and go on to defeat the Hoyas in nine innings, 9-5 at Guy Mason Field.

Georgetown got off to a strong start, putting up five runs on six hits in the bottom of the first inning. Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) and Madeleine Giaquinto (Falls Church, Va./Bishop O'Connell) hit back-to-back 2-RBI singles, and freshman Taylor Henry (Front Royal, Va./Skyline) drove in a run in her third consecutive game to give the Hoyas the early advantage.

Syracuse started their comeback in the fourth inning with a solo homerun by Corinne Ozanne, who had a successful day at the plate, totaling three homeruns and seven RBI. Ozanne homered down the leftfield line in the fifth inning to cut the deficit to two runs, and Syracuse used an RBI single in the sixith inning and a sacrifice fly in the seventh to send the game into extra innings.

Sophomore Lauren O'Leary (La Canada, Calif./La Canada) pitched the first five innings before reaching a pitch count of over 100 pitches, being replaced on the mound by Hyson to start the sixth inning. O'Leary allowed three runs on five hits while striking out seven.

The Hoyas had an opportunity to end the game in the bottom of the eighth inning. Alexandria Anttila (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) led off the inning with a double to left center field and advanced to third on a passed ball with zero outs recorded. Hyson singled to the third baseman in the next at bat, holding Anttila on third for the play.

Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) then flied out to left field for out number one, and the left fielder doubled-up Hyson at first base with a strong throw for the second out of the inning. Giaquinto ground out to the shortstop to send the game into the 9th inning in the next at-bat, stranding Anttila at third base.

 

 

The Orange scored four runs in the ninth on back-to-back homeruns off of Hyson including Ozanne's third of the game. Georgetown was unable to return from the deficit, grounding into a double play to end the game. Hyson pitched the final four innings of the ballgame, allowing six runs in the loss.

Georgetown returns to Guy Mason Field for a midweek matchup with UMBC on Wednesday, April 17. The game is scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m. and can be followed on GameTracker at www.guhoyas.com.
