Freshman pitching sensation Tyler Arthur worked his way into the ace slot for the Georgetown College midway through the season and had yet to lose a game. However, in the opening round of the NAIA National Regional Tournament in Kingsport, TN the rookie suffered his first set back, running his record to 10-1.
The No. 22 Indiana Tech (40-20) loaded the bases with no outs in the first inning to score the first run and then rallied with two outs in the top of the second for another run and a 2-0 lead. The Warriors went on to hand No. 14 Georgetown College (45-10) a 4-2 loss, adding the needed insurance runs in the eighth against reliever Shaun Meyer. The Tigers rallied in their final at-bat for two runs after loading the bases with no outs. A pair of sacrifice flies from David Higuera and Brian Smith pushed across Taylor Payne and EJ Murray, but the comeback came up short as Kyle Rosen flied out to end the game.
Fortunately for GC it is a double-elimination tournament and it will see conference rival Campbellsville University 11 am Friday. GC has played CU four times this season, splitting the games. Georgetown took the most recent game, 9-3, in the second game of the Mid-South Conference Tournament more than two weeks ago.
GC struggled from the plate all day with just five hits all day. The Tigers went down in order the first three innings before Chris Wood and Randy Guite put back-to-back singles and the best threat early.
Georgetown would eventually load the bases in the fourth with one out, but a strikeout and a ground out ended the rally. The Tigers managed singles a few more times, but didn't string anything together again until the ninth. Even then it was Ryan Serrato getting hit by a pitch, EJ Murray walking and a fielder's choice where everyone was safe that loaded the bases for the Tigers.
