Georgetown College baseball had another rough start Tuesday, giving up four first inning runs to Reinhardt University. The Eagles (17-5) used two, two-run homeruns to hang the decisive number in the first frame. They went on for a 7-2 win.
The No. 23 Tigers (7-3) got their offense going in the third inning, but stranded two in scoring position after they reached second and third with only one out. Tiger pitching was going strong at this point, setting RU down in order in the second and third.
In the top of the fourth, GC broke through with its first run. Martin Lemus hit a one-out single, took second on a wild throw and took third on a routine ground out. Steven Mancilla hit a two-out RBI single to the left side for a 4-1 game. Rick Reyes followed with a single, but Armando Lomeli's ground out ended the rally and stranded two more Tigers.
The Eagles got the run back in the bottom of the fifth and added two more for good measure in the sixth. GC got its final run in the top of the seventh.
Lomeli reached on a fielder's choice and Justin Moore came in to run. The speedster advanced around on several errors and scored the second run.
Georgetown stranded 11 runners total in the loss. Duran Elmore, David Higuera, Lemus, Mancilla, Reyes, Lomeli and Trey Gross tallied a hit each to account for all seven base knocks by the Tigers.
Beau Bowen settled down after the first inning, going five and two thirds. He gave up nine hits and six earned runs with one strikeout. Edwin Santiago went one and a third, striking out two and giving up just one hit. Leonard DeLaRosa pitched one inning of hitless ball with one strikeout.
