Georgetown College baseball scored two runs in the first and added another insurance run in the third in handing Indiana University Southeast a 3-1 loss Tuesday at Robert N. Wilson Field.
Both teams struggled with stranding runners. IUSE left 11 and GC 10. The No. 9 Tigers (24-4) tallied the winning runs in the first as Duran Elmore led off with a single. GC had three hits in the inning with one IUSE error that scored Elmore. Steven Mancilla provided the only other run the Tigers needed. He singled and scored on a ground out by David Higuera.
Georgetown continued to threaten, scoring another in the third off Nick Kociolek's single. However, the team also stranded two in the bottom of the second and third, leaving some runs off the board.
Both teams were on a bit of cruise control until the top of the ninth.
With the Grenadiers down to their final three outs, they loaded the bases knocking two relief pitchers from the game. Craig Ramsey came in, getting the first batter to ground into a fielder's choice at home. The next hit a sacrifice fly for the lone IUSE run. Ramsey struck out the final batter to end the game and pick up the save.
Edwin Santiago got the win, going eight innings allowing no runs on seven hits and striking out three batters.
