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.
Georgetown College baseball did something it has not done in almost a month. The No. 7 Tigers (27-5) lost to Union College (26-13) Tuesday in Barbourville, Ky.
The Bulldogs, who have hopped in and out of the rankings this season, scored just enough and held GC's hitters quiet in the 3-1 win. UC pushed runs across in the second, third and sixth innings off Clay Hall. Georgetown mounted a ninth-inning rally, but it was not enough.
"We stranded 10 runners," said Tiger coach Micah Baumfeld. "It means we are getting guys on, but not taking care of business when we have chances. That takes nothing away from Union. They earned this win, scoring when they had guys in place and doing what they needed to do defensively to stop us."
Georgetown College baseball swept another Mid-South Conference weekend series. The No. 9 Tigers have tallied 10 straight league wins and sit in first with a 14-3 record. St. Catharine College, which came into this weekend just behind Georgetown at 10-6, had a lead in two games and tied things up in the third but could not steal a win at Robert N. Wilson Field. Georgetown took the finale 4-1.
The Tigers (27-4, 15-3) have swept four series and the last three. The most recent MSC loss was the opener at Shawnee State on March 14.
"We've won in a variety of ways, but I think the biggest thing is that we are playing well as a team," said Georgetown coach Micah Baumfeld. "It is a marathon season, and hopefully we are just halfway through it. We have a lot to still work on, but I like the way we are playing."
Martin Lemus busted game two against St. Catharine College wide open with his eighth homerun of the season. The senior's three-run blast put Georgetown College baseball ahead for good, his second winning hit of the day. The No. 9 Tigers (26-4, 13-3) scored two more insurance runs in that fourth inning handing the Patriots (18-17, 10-7) a 5-2 defeat.
The two teams square off for the third game of the Mid-South Conference series noon Sunday at Robert N. Wilson Field.
Lemus has eight homeruns already this season, tying his total for the 2013 season. It also puts him tied in 10th for most homeruns in a season for Georgetown.
