Baseball - Sat, Apr. 12, 2014
Georgetown College baseball rebounded from a tough week by sweeping yet another Mid-South Conference series. The Tigers (31-6, 17-3) dropped two games during the week, but got down to business in three wins over the University of the Cumberlands (24-17, 6-13).
Trey Gross' single scored Vinny Sherman, courtesy running for Armando Lomeli, in the top of the fifth for all GC needed in game one Saturday, second of the series. The Tigers added three insurances runs for the 4-0 win. Georgetown scored first in game two and finished with a 3-1 win.
Rick Reyes' ground out scored Martin Lemus in the top of the fourth for a 2-0 cushion in game two. Gross had another RBI single for the bonus run. UC responded in the bottom half of that inning for its lone score of the day. Jared Martin scored an unearned run when a wild throw brought him all the way from first to home with two outs.
GC got back to solid defense and held the Patriots scoreless the rest of the way.
Brian Barry picked up the first win Saturday. The junior went eight innings, allowing just three hits and striking out five. Craig Ramsey shut the door in the ninth with three strikeouts.
Shaun Meyer pitched the other game, going six and a third innings. The senior scattered seven hits and struck out two.
Lemus led offensively, going 4-for-7 with an RBI and a run scored.
Georgetown returns to action 6 pm Monday against Asbury University.
