Baseball - Fri, Mar. 8, 2013
Georgetown College baseball leveled its Mid-South Conference record with a mercy-rule win in game one against No. 12 Lindsey Wilson College (13-7, 4-2). The No. 20 Tigers (11-8, 2-2) scored four runs in the bottom of the second and then tore the cover off the ball in the bottom of the seventh for the 10-0 win.
"It's been a while since we have gotten to play a game with all the weather these past few weeks," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "I think we were excited to actually be playing and knew there was a lot at stake. We can't let this win shift our focus. We have to enjoy this for tonight and be ready to go again tomorrow. Lindsey has a solid team, and I know they will be ready to go."
Game two starts at 1 pm with Bryan Raisor on hand to toss out the first pitch. Game three will start roughly 30 minutes after the conclusion of game two.
Justin Moore, Mike Steinke and Marvin Flores all went 2-of-4 from the plate with two RBI. David Higuera was 2-of-3 with one RBI. Jordan Hinshaw, Ryan Serrato and Tanner Baldwin also knocked in a run Friday at Robert N. Wilson Field.
Matt Smith picked up the win, scattering five hits in seven innings with three strikeouts of the 22 batters he faced.
