Georgetown College baseball got senior day off with a bang and then needed to hold on late against the Shawnee State University Bears Saturday. In the second game of the Mid-South Conference series, the Tigers (14-15, 9-8) opened an eight-run lead before finally winning 10-7.
In the bottom of the sixth, senior Steven Mancilla blasted a two-run home run that put the Tigers on the verge of run-ruling the Bears. However, SSU rallied back with six runs to pull within two before falling.
Senior Tyler Arthur pitched six and two-thirds of an inning, scattering five hits and allowing just one run in his final appearance at Robert N. Wilson Field. The four-year starting pitcher struck out seven and walked two.
Georgetown College baseball took an early lead Friday, tallying a run three of the first five innings. However, Mid-South Conference foe Shawnee State University rallied back, which became the theme of the weekend. The Tigers (13-14, 8-7) needed two more runs in the seventh and eighth to pull off the 5-4 win in game one.
With the game tied 4-4 in the eighth, Jovan Hernandez reached on a walk. He advanced on a sacrifice bunt from Tanner Unkel and scored on an RBI single from Damien Rutherford. This put Georgetown ahead for good.
Georgetown College baseball rallied twice in the course of the regular, seven-inning game and then used a Damien Rutherford solo, walk-off home run to win in the eighth 6-5 over University of the Cumberlands in Saturday's game two.
The Tigers got behind 3-0 in top of the third, but tied it in the bottom of the inning. They took their first lead of the day in the fifth, but the Patriots responded right back with a pair of runs for a 5-4 lead in the top of the sixth.
Georgetown pushed across a run in the bottom half and no one scored in the seventh, setting up Rutherford's game winning offensive blast.
Of course it would not have been a winner had Beau Bowen not come in with runners at the corners and one out. He got the runner at first in a rundown for the second out and struck out the hitter swinging.
Payton Lobdell took the hill for game one of the three-game Mid-South Conference series Friday against University of the Cumberlands. The junior did not disappoint.
He had a perfect game going for almost half the game and in the end scattered four hits in a 4-1 win for Georgetown College baseball. The Tigers (10-13, 6-6) will finish off the league games with a doubleheader Saturday. First pitch of the second nine-inning game is set for noon. The seven-inning game will follow.
Georgetown improves to 7-2 at home, losing just one conference game at Robert N. Wilson Field.
Georgetown College baseball jumped back into Mid-South Conference weekend action dodging the rain and the soaked fields this past weekend. The Tigers (9-13, 5-6 MSC) split with receiving votes Lindsey Wilson College (24-13, 8-3 MSC) to stay in the middle of the pack with three league series left.
The Blue Raiders broke game one open in the fourth and fifth innings with four runs in each, going on for a 9-1 win. GC responded, rallying in the fourth inning for a 2-1 win of game two.
Game three of the series has been canceled due to inclement weather moving into the central Kentucky area Monday.
