Baseball's Jason McGinnis pitched a complete-game shutout in the finals of the Mid-South Conference Tournament this past Saturday to seal the team's first-ever MSC tournament championship.

The senior allowed Shawnee State just three hits and carried a perfect game into 5.2 innings before a grounder in the hole at short broke it up.

"In a way it was kind of a relief to see that happen because then he could just focus on the task at hand of winning the game," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "Of course it is always an exciting possibility, but with the title on the line it was good he could just think about that and not about trying to secure a perfect game."

The Bears got two hits that inning and had one more with a couple of walks as the lone baserunners the entire game. McGinnis struck out six and as the final shallow fly ball was caught by centerfielder Chris Wood, the celebration began.

The senior is 6-3 on the season with a 3.32 ERA, 16th best in the MSC. His 84 strikeouts is second best in the league.

With the win, Georgetown secured a bid to the national tournament and will learn its destination this Sunday.
