Georgetown, KY-Down two, with two outs, two on and senior Bryan Bonner at the plate, things looked like they could go Georgetown's way, but the shortstop's shot to leftfield was just short of the wall and the Tigers lost 7-5 to Campbellsville in the Mid-South Conference Tournament final.

Georgetown, KY-Down two, with two outs, two on and senior Bryan Bonner at the plate, things looked like they could go Georgetown's way, but the shortstop's shot to leftfield was just short of the wall and the Tigers lost 7-5 to Campbellsville in the Mid-South Conference Tournament final.

Campbellsville came out firing in the first inning with a homerun by Chris Curley, his first of two in the game, and a string of hits to score three in the top of the inning. Georgetown answered with a run in the first and third before Campbellsville used a four-run inning in the fourth to complete their scoring on the day.

Georgetown fought back, behind the swings of senior Jake Mahan, who was a perfect five-for-five on the day. The Tigers scored a couple of runs in the bottom of the fifth and then a single run in the sixth to make it 7-5. Defensively, Georgetown was strong in the end, including a special double play when Colin Wilkerson caught a fly ball followed by an amazing throw to catcher Jason Frilling to complete the two-fer. Ryan Archer's diving catch in leftfield came up big before Bonner's final at bat.

Campbellsville moved to 35-10 on the year and Georgetown fell to 32-22. Now the Tigers must wait for the NAIA National Tournament brackets to see if their season will continue. The brackets and final poll will be released on Friday.
