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 University.

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.
