Georgetown College baseball took on a challenge bringing in No. 19 University of Northwestern Ohio. The two teams went toe-to-toe in a thrilling nine-inning game that saw the visitors on the high side. These same two teams will square off Sunday, first pitch set for 1 pm.

The Tigers (9-5) struck first in a slugfest 13-6 setback. They scored a run in the first and fourth, but the Racers (16-7) sped away with it in the sixth. They scored eight runs and never trailed again.

GC did not lay down, though, getting three runs back in the bottom of the inning for an 8-5 game.

UNOH scored twice more in the seventh and brought in three in the ninth. Georgetown pushed across a run in the bottom of the seventh to be in striking distance, but never closer.

A double play spoiled any ninth-inning heroics and gave UNOH its second win of the day. The Racers played a neutral site game with Marygrove College.

Michael Conrad picked up where he left off a weekend ago in the first five innings. He set down 17 of the first 19 hitters he faced – the two that reached were walks – had three perfect innings. The Racers caught up to him in the sixth, starting harmlessly with a pair of singles then used hits and errors to get to GC's bullpen.

He finished with five strikeouts and scattered seven hits in his five and two-third innings.

It was pitch by committee from there Jordan Magers finished the sixth. Logan Brown and Rob Frazen had short stints and Steven Whistler threw two and two-third innings.

Kyle Jackson went 3-for-4 from the plate. Nick Acosta was 2-for-3 with an RBI and Ryan Viramontes was 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run.
