Georgetown College baseball mounted a late rally and picked up the 6-4 win over Stillman College to take the series. The Tigers (4-4) scored three runs in the fifth and Ryan Pearman made it stand up for the victory.

Stillman (1-7) started the game off with a pair of runs in the first of Michael Koltak. The home team added runs in the second and third, chasing GC's starting pitcher from the game.

Pearman came in to scatter four hits and give up no runs in his four and two-thirds inning of work for the win. He came in trailing 4-1, but got offensive production from John Shattles and Chris Gilbody – each with two hits. Shattles went 2-for-2 with three RBIs, while Gilbody was 2-for-3 with two runs scored.

Gilbody started the important fifth inning with GC down 4-2. He walked and advanced into scoring position off a Kendall King sacrifice bunt. Sean Williams singled in Gilbody. Dorian Granados flied out to right, making it two outs and the Tigers still down one.

Ryan Viramontes started the two-out rally. His double put runners at second and third for the hot hitting Nick Giambalvo, batting above .400 for the season, was intentionally walked. Shattles dug in for a two-RBI single, a lead the visitors never relinquished.

Granados drew a bases-loaded walk in the top of the sixth for the extra insurance run. Pearman retired six of the next eight batters he faced to keep the lead and finish the weekend with a win.

The Tigers final have their home opener noon Saturday hosting Judson College. It will be a four-game series with doubleheaders on Saturday and Sunday. Each day the first pitch is set for noon.
