Baseball - Fri, Mar. 10, 2017

Georgetown College baseball once again pounded out the hits against the visiting Shawnee State University Bears. However, Friday afternoon the Tigers (16-6) made good on the hits and took the rubber-game 6-3. This improves GC's Mid-South Conference record at 2-1 on the opening weekend of league action.

Sam Medina did a lot of the damage – a homerun shy of a cycle. The senior went 4-for-4 with a triple, a double and two singles. He added three RBIs and scored twice.

Kyle Fieger, despite hanging up a pitch that Brandon Reaman took over the fence, settled down to retire nine straight Bears (5-16, 1-2) and 12-of-13 after the third inning. He scattered six hits, struck out two and walked one. Ryan Pearman went one and a third, setting up Jordan Magers to finish it off and get the save – his second in as many appearances.

After Reaman's swing made it 2-0, Kendall King led off the bottom of the third reaching on an error. Sean Williams doubled, setting the stage for Medina's base clearing triple which tied the game. Medina came in on a wild pitch and that stood as the potential winning run all the way to the top of the ninth.

In the fourth, King started a two-out rally with a walk. Williams' RBI double scored King – the winning run. Medina followed with an RBI double.

Medina scored the final insurance run in the seventh when he led off with a single, advanced on a pass ball, reached third on an error and scored on Ryan Viramontes ground out double-play.

SSU made it interesting in the ninth. Mike Watson doubled with one out. Sam Gerheld followed with a walk. Both advanced two bases on a pair of pass balls. However, Magers settled down and struck out Grant Vanleiw and got Santiago Martinez to fly out to Medina.

Georgetown is back in action 1 pm Wednesday when they head to Florence, Ky. for a pair of games against University of Cincinnati-Clermont. The games will be at the Florence Freedom stadium.
