After winning the first regular season Mid-South Conference title in epic fashion – nearly a four hour game that had 19 runs scored between the two teams – it was time for Senior Day's ceremonies. No. 7 Georgetown College baseball rode the rollercoaster of emotions and maybe was fazed a bit early in game three, but got down to business for another rally win.
"We might have gotten a little too comfortable," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "Campbellsville had some timely hitting in that first inning and jumped out on us. Our guys again showed great calm with this."
CU lead for the first two innings, but Georgetown finished off another conference sweep on its way to a 20-3 league-leading record with three games to play. The Tigers scored two in each of the second and third innings and rallied one more time for an 8-5 victory to finish off Senior Day with a bang.
Three and a half years ago Micah Baumfeld took over the reigns as head coach for Georgetown College baseball. In that time the No. 7 Tigers have won its first ever Mid-South Conference tournament, been ranked the highest it has ever been (7th), stayed in the rankings consistently and Saturday claimed its first-ever regular season title.
"It is a bit unreal, but these guys work hard all year long and this has been our goal," Baumfeld said. "It is extra special to do this on senior day and make it one more memory for so many guys who have made this transition possible."
Clay Hall and Shaun Meyer, two of the Tigers stacked pitching rotation, are two seniors that were instrumental in both the tournament crown and now the regular season title. Javier Saenz, Brett Smith, Justin Moore and Martin Lemus joined in 2013 and helped the team win its first game in the new national tournament format. Edwin Santiago came this year as a pitching and hitting threat.
Georgetown College baseball needed another late inning rally and with the win inched closer to its first Mid-South Conference regular season title. The No. 7 Tigers (32-6, 18-3) trailed by two heading into the bottom of the eighth against Campbellsville University (25-15, 13-8). Hits and walks set the stage for a two RBI double by Tyler Coker as Georgetown went on for a 7-6 win.
CU had a two-out rally in the ninth. Hitting a single and an RBI triple to make it interesting, but Craig Ramsey got the final batter to fly out to Justin Moore as GC is now one win against Campbellsville away from the title.
Georgetown College baseball rebounded from a tough week by sweeping yet another Mid-South Conference series. The Tigers (31-6, 17-3) dropped two games during the week, but got down to business in three wins over the University of the Cumberlands (24-17, 6-13).
Trey Gross' single scored Vinny Sherman, courtesy running for Armando Lomeli, in the top of the fifth for all GC needed in game one Saturday, second of the series. The Tigers added three insurances runs for the 4-0 win. Georgetown scored first in game two and finished with a 3-1 win.
Rick Reyes' ground out scored Martin Lemus in the top of the fourth for a 2-0 cushion in game two. Gross had another RBI single for the bonus run. UC responded in the bottom half of that inning for its lone score of the day. Jared Martin scored an unearned run when a wild throw brought him all the way from first to home with two outs.
Georgetown College baseball took care of business Friday night in the opening game against University of the Cumberlands. UC scored two in the bottom of the first, but the No. 7 Tiger defense held them down until the offense clicked. GC pulled off the 5-2 rally win. Most of the damage was done in the seventh inning when Edwin Santiago started with a double to left center.
Rick Reyes followed with an RBI single to the same location. Duran Elmore singled, setting the stage for a two-RBI double from Tyler Coker. Georgetown took the lead on that hit and never looked back. Martin Lemus added the first insurance run with a single to left center that scored Coker.
Reyes added the icing on the cake in the top of the eighth with a two-out, solo home run.
