Georgetown College baseball continues its tradition of a newcomers verse returners game. This year the game will be played on Aug. 20 at 1 pm.
"We are excited to move this up to move in day, hoping to open this up to our parents helping players move in and give other students a game to watch that first day back," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "This is always a good game as we put our transfers and rookies on a team and all our returning upperclassmen on a team. They really battle it out as a first chance to see what we have."
The rematch of Shawn Kennedy against Erik Barron was very different. Kennedy still threw a gem for Georgetown College baseball, but Barron was equally as untouchable this time leading to a thrilling Mid-South Conference Tournament Opening Series game one.
Cumberland University came to Georgetown for a best of three and started with a ninth inning rally and win. Ryan Dickison started it with a lead-of double for the Phoenix (31-25). The Tigers (30-23) defense was prepared for a bunt and played it perfectly. Chaz Meadows fielded it and caught Dickison charging for home. The senior came up firing to Jalen Poindexter. Dickison slammed on the breaks, but seemed to be an easy out until Poindexter mishandled the ball and everyone was safe.
Georgetown College baseball found its back against the wall in a critical regular season finale Mid-South Conference showdown. Shawnee State University had won just one league series all season, but on Senior Weekend were looking to play spoiler. The Tigers (30-22, 11-10 MSC) held within their grasp the chance to host an opening weekend series to start the conference tournament.
However, splitting day one and Cumberland University taking two of three from Campbellsville University, meant everything was riding on Sunday's game.
The Bears (19-31, 6-15) tallied six runs in the bottom of the third for an 8-2 lead. Georgetown rallied to get two of those back in the top of the fourth, but then innings were quickly sliding away.
Georgetown College baseball applied a little more pressure to its regular season ending Mid-South Conference series. The Tigers (29-22, 10-10 MSC) split day one at Shawnee State University (19-30, 6-14), forcing them to take game three Sunday afternoon to secure a home-opening postseason series. The Bears took game one, 4-0, and GC needed 10 innings to pull out a 2-1 win of the scheduled seven-inning game two.
Georgetown came into the weekend tied with Cumberland University at 9-9 and holding the tiebreaker with the series win the previous weekend against the Phoenix. However, CU won two against Campbellsville to finish at 11-10. It will all come down to Georgetown's game Sunday to decide the standings and which teams will have to travel in a best of three conference tournament opener.
Shawnee State started Saturday behind ace Derek Moore. The Bears broke open the pitcher's duel with a run in the fifth and blew it open with three runs on four hits in the bottom of the eighth.
