Georgetown College baseball team wrapped up its first weekend of action with a 10-3 loss to Belmont Abbey College, an NCAA Division II school in North Carolina. The Tigers (1-2) split the first day with the Crusaders (3-1) before dropping the rubber match Monday afternoon.
Tyler Fisher and Tanner Baldwin did most of the damage on the offensive side. Fisher finished 3-of-5, while Baldwin went 2-of-4 with three RBI. Baldwin had a solid weekend, hitting 5-of-10 in three games with five RBI, one run scored and two doubles.
The sophomore currently leads the team with a .500 batting average.
On Monday, the Crusaders opened up an early lead, three runs in the first three innings, scoring at least a run in every inning but two. But their big inning was a four-run, bottom of the sixth.
Georgetown came to life in the top of the seventh for all three of its runs. Tyler Back, Taylor Payne and Chris Wood all reached, setting up a three-run double by Baldwin.
The Tigers hit the road again this weekend for a series with Emmanuel College in Georgia. The teams will play one game Friday and a doubleheader on Saturday.
