GW Baseball Falls to District Rival Georgetown, 10-4
Robert Homers, Drives in Three, but Errors Prove Costly for Colonials
March 19, 2013
ARLINGTON - Freshman Matthieu Robért homered and drove in three runs, but a defensive lapse in the third inning allowed visiting Georgetown to score six runs as George Washington baseball dropped a 10-4 decision on Tuesday at Barcroft Park.
GW (4-15) fell behind 2-0 in the first inning, but cut the deficit in half in the second when Robert lined a RBI single to center field, scoring freshman Eric Kalman, who had doubled with one out.
In the top of the third, the Colonials committed three errors in the field, allowing Georgetown (13-6) to extend the inning and score six runs to take an 8-1 lead.
The Colonials scored twice to cut the deficit to 8-3 in the bottom of the fourth when Robért provided another run-scoring single. Freshman Nolan Lodden added a RBI single later in the inning, but was thrown out trying to stretch the hit to end the inning.
Georgetown answered in the fifth, once again taking advantage of a GW error to score a run and push the lead to 9-3.
Robért struck again the bottom of the sixth when he lifted a 3-2 pitch over the left field wall for his first career home run, making the score 9-4. The New Orleans, La., native finished 3-for-4 from the plate with three RBIs on the afternoon.
The Hoyas added a run in the seventh and James Heine worked a perfect three innings for the save. Matt Smith earned the win for Georgetown, scattering 10 hits and allowing four runs with two strikeouts.
Senior Ryan Hickey also finished with multiple hits, going 2-for-4 with two infield singles.
The Colonials open Atlantic 10 play against UMass on Friday at Earl Lorden Field. First pitch on Friday is scheduled for 3:00 p.m.
