Baseball - Fri, Apr. 21, 2017

Georgetown College baseball hit it out of the park on Senior Day – literally. The Tigers (30-18) scored most of their runs Friday in a doubleheader with Brescia by way of a homerun. John Shattles got the day started and four more went over the fence as GC won 10-0 and 2-0.

Coming into the day the team had 25, tacking on five more is one-sixth of its season total.

"Pretty impressive day from the plate," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "Senior day is an emotional day to start and then in the spring it is so difficult to know if you will get it in with the weather. We are thankful Brescia could come today and play two and we got this chance to do it right for our seven seniors."

Georgetown tipped its cap to Sam Medina, Kyle Jackson, Steven Whisler, Michael Conrad, Andrew Paz, Logan Brown and Blake Schumann.

Following Shattles solo home run for all the offense the Tigers needed in game one, the team tacked on nine more runs an inning later. Rodnee Little crushed a three-run home run and Nick Giambalvo had a two-run blast. Paz added an RBI single. Jackson scored on a balk and a two-RBI single from Sean Williams put the home team up 10 after five.

No one scored the next two innings and the game concluded in mercy-rule.

Paz and Williams hit a pair of solo home runs for all the offense in game two.

Conrad got the win in game one, allowing just two hits and striking out six in his five innings. Whisler and Brown each got an inning. Whisler struck out two.

Breion Barron dominated game two with 10 strikeouts with just three hits in six innings. Michael Koltak picked up the save as he slammed the door shut.

Georgetown is back in action Monday at Brescia.
