A three-run fifth inning started by Tanner Unkel's bunt single broke game one of a doubleheader between Georgetown College and Miami Hamilton in baseball Tuesday. The Tigers' Duran Elmore's single broke a 1-1 tie and then David Higuera's sacrifice fly scored the winning run. Despite a MUH run in the top of the seventh, GC won 4-2.
Elmore added an insurance run off an RBI single from Steven Mancilla.
"It's nice to pick up another win and see our guys making contact," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "We are hitting crunch time and just finding our grove after so much snow and rain this season."
Georgetown finished off the sweep with a Clay Young home run in game two. The pitcher's duel was disrupted when the junior catcher took the first pitch he saw over the left field fence.
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.

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.
