Milligan College exploded in a third of an inning against Roman Davalos and avoided the weekend sweep. The Buffaloes (1-3) scored five runs, adding the winning runs in the third on their way to an 8-5 victory.

The Tigers (3-1) coach Micah Baumfeld had seen enough as three hits had plated five earned runs with just one out in that span. He pulled his starter and it was pitch-by-committee from there. He used a total of five pitchers, the final two each throwing two full innings.

Georgetown got as close as a run when the visitors scored twice in the second and twice more in the third. Unfortunately, Milligan responded back with two of its own in the bottom of the third.

Getting production from the lead-off spot is extremely helpful in offensive production in baseball. Georgetown College baseball's Robert Longtree provided hit after hit Saturday in the opener of a doubleheader.

The junior went 3-for-4 from the plate with a run scored as the Tigers (3-0) scored four runs in the first four innings, holding on for a 4-3 victory.

It was a two-run fourth that gave the visitors a third straight win over Milligan College (0-3).

Nicholas Lugo reached on a bunt single and eventually came around on Longtree's single added by a bobble by Bryan Soto. Longtree scored the winning run off a Kyle Jackson single.

Georgetown College men's basketball has been on a tear since a three-point overtime loss at home to Lindsey Wilson College in a brutal gauntlet of four road games and six overall in the past 14 days. All games have been Mid-South Conference battles. Unfortunately, Saturday the No. 2 Tigers (21-3, 9-3) ran up against a hungry University of the Cumberlands team.

These two rivals squared off six days ago in Williamsburg, Ky. GC was on fire Monday, but the Patriots were ready to match that pace Saturday in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. UC (16-9, 6-5) hit eight threes and outlasted Georgetown, 86-83. Temjae Singleton hit the dagger from deep with 37 seconds left to put the visitors up 84-81. Troy Steward sliced into the lane for a quick two for GC, but Kelsey Wilkinson hit both free throws with 19 seconds closing out the game.

Women's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 6, 2016 at 8:20 PM

The foul line can define many basketball games. Saturday Georgetown College women's basketball team, playing its sixth game in 14 days, did not fare well from the charity stripe most of the day against Mid-South Conference rival University of the Cumberlands. However, when it mattered the Tigers (12-11, 7-4) were money. They were 25-of-38 for the game, but 7-of-10 in chipping away a five-point deficit late. None bigger than two with just three tenths left and game tied at 67.

Jessica Foster grabbed an offensive rebound and was fouled from behind. The senior stepped to the line, 2-of-6 to that point, calmly stroked two in for the 69-67 win. Georgetown has won five straight, going 5-1 in this crazy stretch created by the mid-January snow storm.

"It was a hard fought battle," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "We are finally learning how to win in close games."

Robert Longtree was hit by the second pitch of game two and scored on a double play for the only run Georgetown College baseball needed. The Tigers (2-0) tacked on several insurance runs to beat Milligan College (0-2) 5-0.

Joe Fernandez pitched a solid game from the mound, striking out 10 and allowing just two hits in the complete-game, shutout win.

In the top of the first, things looked very promising for the visitors. Longtree and Kyle Jackson reached, setting up designated hitter Hector Marmol. The junior went 4-for-5 in game one, but with no outs and two on lined into a double play. His hard hit was straight at the Buffaloes second baseman, who recovered to catch Jackson off at first base. This allowed time for the speedy Longtree to tag and score.
