Georgetown College baseball used three runs in the eighth to break the stalemate of game two with University of Rio Grande. Michael Encinas' sacrifice fly broke up the 2-2 tie and proved to be all the offense the No. 23 Tigers (19-4, 8-3) needed. Georgetown added another two for the 5-2 win.
Brian Barry went six full innings, scattering four hits with two earned runs and getting a no decision. Craig Ramsey came in and closed the door for the win.
Martin Lemus started the big inning with a single and an error allowed him to reach second. Tanner Unkel came in to run for the first baseman. Steven Mancilla singled, advancing Unkel to third. Encinas hit a sacrifice fly. David Higuera singled to bring in Mancilla, knocking David Steele from the game.
Higuera stole a base and took third on a wild pitch, setting the stage for an RBI sacrifice fly by Ryan Rodriguez.
The win was a monumental one for third-year head coach Micah Baumfeld. For the Tiger skipper it was win 100. He was 100-34, with a Mid-South Conference postseason title and back-to-back appearances at the national tournament.
He averages 40.5 wins a season and despite having to cancel 10 early-season games due to weather, is well on his way to reaching that total again. It took him just 134 games to reach this point, a 75 percent winning percentage in his two-plus seasons.
