Martin Lemus busted game two against St. Catharine College wide open with his eighth homerun of the season. The senior's three-run blast put Georgetown College baseball ahead for good, his second winning hit of the day. The No. 9 Tigers (26-4, 13-3) scored two more insurance runs in that fourth inning handing the Patriots (18-17, 10-7) a 5-2 defeat.
The two teams square off for the third game of the Mid-South Conference series noon Sunday at Robert N. Wilson Field.
Lemus has eight homeruns already this season, tying his total for the 2013 season. It also puts him tied in 10th for most homeruns in a season for Georgetown.
Steven Mancilla reached on an error then moved around the bases to be at third when Ryan Rodriguez singled for a 4-1 game. Tanner Unkel, running for Armando Lomeli also eventually came around and scored on a wild pitch for the final GC run.
Adrian Garcia tagged a solo homerun with one-out in the seventh as a last gasp for SCC.
Brian Barry went the distance for Georgetown. He scattered four hits and allowed two runs while striking out four.
The Tigers did not manage many hits off the plethora of pitchers the Patriots used in the seven inning game. Lemus, Justin Moore, Lomeli and Rodriguez accounted for all four hits for Georgetown. SCC used Andrew Nelson, who allowed all four hits, and then held down the Tigers with Cory Klinger and Rich Corrente.
