Tyler Arthur pitched a complete game shutout for his seventh win of the season and Georgetown College baseball swept University of the Cumberlands this past weekend. The No. 21 Tigers (32-7, 12-5) are right behind No. 16 Lindsey Wilson College in the Mid-South Conference standings with two league series left.
GC pushed across two runs, more than enough for Arthur, in the 2-0 win. The team came back Saturday for 5-2 and 8-7 wins.
"It was a great week for us," said Tiger coach Micah Baumfeld. "We stayed focused on each task at hand and did what we needed to do.
"I couldn't ask more from a freshman. Tyler kept putting up zeros, which gave our hitters time to relax. We knew we were going to score runs eventually."
Arthur leads the team in wins and has yet to taste defeat at Georgetown. The Lexington native has a 1.72 earn run average with 48 strikeouts in 62 and 2/3 innings.
Brian Smith, Guite and Steinke all went 2-of-3 from the plate.
Game three was a bit more interesting. GC opened a 5-2 lead and UC rallied back with three in the bottom of the sixth to tie it. The Tigers had four homeruns, two from EJ Murray, in pulling off the one-run victory.
