Baseball - Sun, Feb. 24, 2013
Georgetown College baseball team traveled for its first Mid-South Conference series with newcomer Cumberland University. The three games opened with a nine-inning slugfest Friday at Ernest L. Stockton Field.
The Bulldogs (7-3-1, 1-0 MSC) took the early lead, scoring eight runs in the first two innings. In baseball that sounds like a win, but CU would need a few more to hang on for the 14-10 decision.
"Tough day on the mound all the way around," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "I was pleased we never stopped playing, but we just couldn't stop them either."
The Tigers (7-7, 0-1) responded with five runs in the top of the third to make things interesting. Unfortunately, from the fourth inning on Cumberland scored at least a run every at bat. GC scored two in the fifth and three in the ninth and got within two runs after four and a half innings, but never got any closer.
Jordan Hinshaw helped the Tigers to most of their runs. The senior was 3-of-5 from the plate with a double, two homeruns and six RBI. Mike Steinke had two hits for two runs and two RBI, while Martin Lemus had one hit and one sacrifice fly for a run and two RBI.
Tyler Arthur started the game and went one and two-thirds of an inning. He gave up nine hits and six earned runs. Javier Saenz gave up four hits and just one run. Ryan Serrato gave up six hits and two runs and Chris Villalobos allowed three hits and two earned runs. The Bulldogs scored three unearned runs on the Tigers three errors.
