Baseball - Sat, Feb. 25, 2012
Georgetown College baseball opened up a 10-0 lead
Saturday in game one and never looked back against the winless Lourdes
University. The Tigers (13-0) cruised to an 18-3 victory and Matt Smith pitched
a jewel of a second game, two outs shy of a no-hitter in a 12-0 win.
The Tigers now hold the best record in the NAIA. The only
other unbeaten team is fellow Mid-South Conference opponent Campbellsville
Smith gave up two hits in the top of the seventh before
closing the door.
Ryan Serrato tore it up from the plate for Georgetown in
game one, going 5-of-6 with six RBI in the designated hitter slot and Tyler
Arthur picked up his second win of the season. The Lexington Catholic product
pitched four innings, scattering three hits. Tiger coach Micah Baumfeld got
some solid work for his bullpen, allowing Jordan Cumpston, Trey LaVera and Abe
Mitchell an inning of work each.
Brian Smith had another big day at the plate, going
2-of-4 and crushed a two-run homerun in the fourth.
Mike Steinke was 2-of-5 with three RBI and two runs
scored to lead in game two.
Georgetown returns to action Tuesday at Asbury
University. First pitch of the doubleheader is set for 1 pm.
