Sophia Gargicevich-Almeida drove in the game-winning run in the sixth inning.
April 22, 2014
WASHINGTON - Junior first baseman Sophia Gargicevich-Almeida (Riverside, Calif./Martin Luther King) drove in the eventual game-winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning and senior centerfielder Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) threw-out the potential game-tying run at home plate in the top of the seventh inning to help the Georgetown University softball team (21-20) defeat George Washington (16-27), 5-4, on Tuesday night at Guy Mason Field.
Gargicevich-Almeida went 2-for-3 with one run and drove in younger sister Alessandra Gargicevich-Almeida in the bottom of the sixth inning to break a 4-4 tie. The Colonials got the game-tying run to second base with one out in the top of the seventh inning, before Graziano fielded a single and fired home to cut down the runner at the plate. Junior pitcher Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) struck out the final batter to seal the Hoyas' victory.
Hyson earned her 12th victory of the season tossing 4.0 scoreless innings of relief, while allowing three hits and striking out seven.
Georgetown got on the board in the bottom of the first inning as senior Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) drew a two-out walk and scored on Hyson's triple to the gap in right center field to take a 1-0 lead.
George Washington tied the game in the top of the second inning, as Victoria Valos drew a lead-off walk and eventually came around to score on Paige Kovalsky's bunt single. Valos gave the Colonials a 4-1 lead an inning later with a three-run home run over the fence in right field.
The Hoyas stormed back in the bottom of the third inning, loading the bases before Hyson's single through the left side allowed Sophia Gargicevich-Almeida and sophomore shortstop Grace Appelbe (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) to score. Sophomore leftfielder Samantha Giovanniello's (Floral Park, N.Y./Floral Park Memorial) sacrifice fly to left field allowed Slovacek to cross the plate with the game-tying run.
Georgetown broke the tie in the bottom of the sixth inning on Gargicevich-Almeida's bloop single to left field. The run would stand as Graziano and Hyson keyed the Hoyas' defensive effort in the top of the seventh inning to seal a program-record tying 21st victory.
The Hoyas will have a chance to surpass the 21 victory mark, previously reached by the 2008 and 2013 teams, when they take on Towson on Thursday, April 24 at Guy Mason Field. First pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m.
