Georgetown College softball scored two runs to cut into Lindsey Wilson College's early lead of the Mid-South Conference tournament semifinals. However, the No. 6 Blue Raiders (43-6) responded right back to put the Tigers (17-17) into Friday's consolation bracket with a 9-3 win late Thursday.
Action begins 3 pm EST as GC takes on University of Pikeville (20-18). Georgetown won three of the four games this season against the Bears.
A little small ball from Emily Snow got the Tigers going in the top of the fourth trailing 3-0. Shelby Engle roped a double into deep right center field, scoring Snow easily. Sandy Young's single and a bobble by the LWC defender plated Engle.
This is as close as it got. The Blue Raiders switched pitchers. Rachel Simms laid down a sacrifice bunt that moved Young into scoring position, but a strikeout from Marissa Massie ended the threat.
Georgetown College softball got back to destroying the ball in the quarterfinals of the Mid-South Conference Tournament Thursday afternoon. The Tigers (17-16) sent 13 hitters to the plate in the first inning and blasted the game out of competition in a 9-1 mercy-rule win over Cumberland University (12-31).
Shelby Engle was an at-bat away from attempting for the cycle. The junior had a single, double and a triple with three RBIs and a run scored. She brought in the first run with a single to score Chaselyn Allgeier, who started the bottom of the first with a walk. Engle then came in to score the winning run off an RBI walk by Rachel Simms.
Georgetown College baseball lost a pitchers' duel Thursday morning in the Mid-South Conference consolation bracket, ending the 2015 season. The Tigers (18-18) managed just two hits against Dalton Dahley and a couple of errors gave the Bears (16-27) the 2-0 victory.
GC might have had a lot of wind taken out of the team's sail following the first at-bat. Trailing 1-0, Steven Mancilla hit a shot to right field that had homerun potential. Connor Osborne tracked it, caught it and immediately slammed into the bullpen fence. The right fielder lay motionless as the next few tense moments passed.
The phenominal play robbed the Tigers of a sure extra base hit and made even in the park homerun. Thankfully Osborne left giving the thumbs up and maybe a little extra emotional boost to his teammates who had yet to win an MSC game.
Georgetown College baseball had no answer in the quarterfinals of the Mid-South Conference tournament Wednesday against Cumberland University. The Tigers (18-17) gave up two runs in each of the first four innings on their way to a 14-2 setback.
The loss drops them into the consolation bracket where they will have to rally out for a chance to advance to the NAIA National Tournament Opening Round.
The Bulldogs (19-29) used 15 hits and knocked starting pitcher Tyler Arthur from the game after three innings. Georgetown stopped the first inning rally and even cut the deficit in half when Duran Elmore led off with a double and Steven Mancilla's sacrifice bunt scored the speedy outfielder.
Georgetown College softball starts postseason Thursday afternoon in Bowling Green, Ky. at Michael O. Buchanon Park against Cumberland University 3 pm EST. The Tigers (16-16, 13-13) split the regular season series against the Bulldogs (12-30, 8-18).
These are the same two teams that battled for the Mid-South Conference postseason title a year ago. Georgetown rallied out of the consolation bracket and beat the Bulldogs twice on day two to secure the programs second ever appearance in the NAIA national tournament.
