At the time, it appeared frosting on the cake. Sam Medina sent the first pitch in his second at bat deep over the fence in right field. Despite Georgetown College being on cruise control at this juncture, the run served as the game-winner Wednesday against University of Cincinnati-Clermont, 7-3.

The one-out solo home run put the Tigers (28-17) up by four against UCC (21-13) and pitcher Jordan Magers was dominating. The Cougars had been set down in order the first three innings and continued through four and two-thirds. Then a two-out walk ended the perfect game.

In the fifth, a pair of one-out singles ended the no-no and made it interesting when an error extended the inning. However, an RBI single to right had the visitors a bit greedy as they sent a runner all the way around from first. A perfect cutoff by Larkin Heldt led to an out at the plate. When the dust settled it was 4-3.

GC added three more runs over the next three at-bats for cushion and Michael Koltak came in for the save. Magers got the win, scattering four hits with one earned run and striking out five. Koltak struck out four, gave up one hit and no runs.

Medina and Kyle Jackson each went 2-for-3 from the plate. Medina had one RBI and three runs scored. Jackson scored the first run off a sacrifice fly by Heldt and also had two RBIs.

Georgetown returns to action 4 pm Friday hosting Brescia on Senior Day. It is also the Donate Life game, supporting the awareness of Leukemia and how everyone can help fight it or potentially save a life.
