Georgetown College improved to 17-11 on the year with two big wins over visiting No. 5 Trevecca Nazarene University on Tuesday.

In the first game, the Tigers struck first with a big first inning, coming out with a 6-0 lead after runs were scored by Colin Wilkerson, Jason Frilling, Josh Hamlin, Dustin Bonner, Josh Franklin and Eric Severson. Bonner and Severson scored again in the fifth inning as Georgetown won 8-0. Pitcher Kevin Rueff got the win, throwing six innings and facing 21 batters win six strikeouts, four hits and two walks before reliever Matt Martin came in to finish in the seventh.

The second win came in a much closer contest. The Tigers were down 3-0 to begin the bottom of the seventh before third baseman Hamlin and designated hitter Austin Sparks had an RBI each to cut the Trevecca lead to one at 3-2. Second baseman Jake Mahan was facing two strikes and two outs on the scoreboard when he hit a single to leftfield to score the two needed runs to win the game. Ryan Anderson pitched the entire game for the Tigers.

"I am just so happy for our team," said Head Coach Erik Hagen. "They are a great group and this was a huge night for our team and our program."

Hagen's team split an important weekend series at Mid-South Conference opponent Campbellsville and next faces Asbury on the road on Wednesday.
