GW Out Slugged By Georgetown, Fall 10-8
Hoyas Break 8-8 Tie With Two Two-Out Ninth Inning Hits
May 3, 2005
ARLINGTON, VA - Georgetown University (23-25) scored two runs in the top of the ninth inning to break an 8-8 tie and held on to defeat George Washington University (30-14) 10-8 Tuesday afternoon at Barcroft Park.
The Colonials fell behind 8-4 in the top of the sixth inning but battled back to score four times in the bottom of the frame to even the contest. GW used four hits, including an RBI single from first baseman Josh Goldberg (Albany, NY / Albany Academy), to produce four runs.
But the Hoyas used two clutch two-out ninth inning hits to win the game. Leftfielder Mark McLaughlin doubled and with two outs shortstop Matt Johnson singled in him home and advanced to second on the subsequent throw to the plate. Third baseman Danny Gronski followed with an RBI single to seal the Colonials' fate.
Goldberg continued his hot hitting with three more hits in the game, including two doubles, and three RBIs. Right fielder Brad Rosenblat (New Orleans, LA / Tulane / Newman) connected for his Atlantic 10 leading 15th home run.
GU's leadoff hitter Parker Brooks went 4-for-6 with two doubles, three runs scored and an RBI. Right fielder Billy Quinn went 4-for-5 with three RBIs and came on to pitch the ninth inning and picked up the save (1).
RHP Brian Frazier (Allentown, PA / Emmaus) got the start for GW and was roughed up for seven earned runs in 5.2 innings. LHP Dan Pfau (Flemington, NJ / Hunterdon Central) (3-3) entered the game with the bases loaded in the sixth inning and terminated a Hoyas' rally that had plated four runs. Pfau then pitched a very strong seventh and eighth innings before surrendering GU's ninth inning runs.
Hoyas' starter LHP Tyler Abott lasted 2.2 innings before three relievers finished the game. RHP Dan Kennedy (1-0) threw 3.1 scoreless innings out of the bullpen and earned the win.
Both teams will meet again Wednesday night at GU's Shirley Povich Field in Rockville, MD. Game time is 7:00 pm.
