Robert Longtree was hit by the second pitch of game two and scored on a double play for the only run Georgetown College baseball needed. The Tigers (2-0) tacked on several insurance runs to beat Milligan College (0-2) 5-0.
Joe Fernandez pitched a solid game from the mound, striking out 10 and allowing just two hits in the complete-game, shutout win.
In the top of the first, things looked very promising for the visitors. Longtree and Kyle Jackson reached, setting up designated hitter Hector Marmol. The junior went 4-for-5 in game one, but with no outs and two on lined into a double play. His hard hit was straight at the Buffaloes second baseman, who recovered to catch Jackson off at first base. This allowed time for the speedy Longtree to tag and score.
Georgetown College baseball blew open a pitcher's duel in the fourth inning against Milligan College. The Tigers (1-0) had four runs on four hits to help build a cushion in a 9-5 win that opens the 2016 season.
Nicholas Lugo tagged his first home run in Orange and Black with a two-run shot that put the visitors up for good. Trey Gross started the inning with a single and when a bunt attempt to advance him went awry, Lugo stepped in with one out. He hit a 2-1 count to deep left center for a 4-3 GC advantage.
Chaz Meadows reached on an error and came around on a double down the left field line by Kyle Jackson. Hector Marmol followed with an RBI double to score Jackson for a 6-3 advantage.
In 2012 coach Micah Baumfeld offered Adam Skonieczki a chance to come help Georgetown College baseball. Two of his biggest tasks coming in: help the Tigers hitting and expand the recruiting base into Texas and some of those surrounding southern states. The then hitting and outfielders coach from Texas A&M at Corpus Christi coach jumped at the chance.
It does not seem like three years has pasted, but in a blink of an eye the tandem put GC on the map once again for baseball qualifying for two NAIA Opening Round Tournaments, one of which the team won and advance to the NAIA World Series for only the second time in school history.
Georgetown went 100-48 over the past three seasons with a 52-11 home record. The team twice hit above .300 for the year with 320-plus runs scored. The Tigers scored 842 runs off 1,370 hits.
