Baseball - Wed, Apr. 12, 2017

Early innings were the undoing of the Georgetown College baseball team Wednesday afternoon against Milligan College. The Buffaloes (21-20) scored five runs in the first inning of game one and a combine five in the first and second of game two. Both leads held up as the Tigers (25-15) fell 8-6 and 6-1.

Five runs in the final three innings made game one interesting as relief pitcher Jordan Magers did all he could to hold down the hot bats of MC. However, it was too little too late.

GC loaded the bases in the bottom of the seventh for its only solid chance at rallying in game two. However, it was all done with two outs and a routine grounder to second ended it.

Sam Medina went 3-for-3 with a two-run home run in the first and Ryan Viramontes was 2-for-4 with two RBIs – coming off a one-out double in the seventh for the final runs of the game.

Steven Whisler came in for relief of Andrew Paz, pitching his first game for the Tigers, and retired 14 of the 16 hitters he faced. Unfortunately, GC managed just four hits in the second game of the day.

Georgetown returns to action 2 pm Friday hosting Lindsey Wilson College.
