Georgetown College baseball rallied twice in the course of the regular, seven-inning game and then used a Damien Rutherford solo, walk-off home run to win in the eighth 6-5 over University of the Cumberlands in Saturday's game two.
The Tigers got behind 3-0 in top of the third, but tied it in the bottom of the inning. They took their first lead of the day in the fifth, but the Patriots responded right back with a pair of runs for a 5-4 lead in the top of the sixth.
Georgetown pushed across a run in the bottom half and no one scored in the seventh, setting up Rutherford's game winning offensive blast.
Of course it would not have been a winner had Beau Bowen not come in with runners at the corners and one out. He got the runner at first in a rundown for the second out and struck out the hitter swinging.
Payton Lobdell took the hill for game one of the three-game Mid-South Conference series Friday against University of the Cumberlands. The junior did not disappoint.
He had a perfect game going for almost half the game and in the end scattered four hits in a 4-1 win for Georgetown College baseball. The Tigers (10-13, 6-6) will finish off the league games with a doubleheader Saturday. First pitch of the second nine-inning game is set for noon. The seven-inning game will follow.
Georgetown improves to 7-2 at home, losing just one conference game at Robert N. Wilson Field.
Georgetown College baseball jumped back into Mid-South Conference weekend action dodging the rain and the soaked fields this past weekend. The Tigers (9-13, 5-6 MSC) split with receiving votes Lindsey Wilson College (24-13, 8-3 MSC) to stay in the middle of the pack with three league series left.
The Blue Raiders broke game one open in the fourth and fifth innings with four runs in each, going on for a 9-1 win. GC responded, rallying in the fourth inning for a 2-1 win of game two.
Game three of the series has been canceled due to inclement weather moving into the central Kentucky area Monday.
Steven Mancilla hit an RBI single and scored on a double by Jovan Hernandez to put Georgetown College baseball ahead for good in Sunday's final game with St. Catharine College. The Tigers (6-11, 4-5 MSC) held on for a 7-5 win, their first on the road this season.
GC was 0-10 prior to that and facing its second Mid-South Conference sweep. The team is currently tied for fifth in league standings with Cumberland University with 12 games left to play. The Tigers hit the road for a set of mid-week games – at University of Cincinnati Clermont and University of Miami – Hamilton – before hosting Lindsey Wilson College for a three-game series this weekend.
The Blue Raiders are currently tied at the top of the standings with SCC and Campbellsville University with a 7-2 record.
Georgetown College baseball's road skid continued Saturday afternoon in the first of three games with Mid-South Conference foe St. Catharine College. The Tigers (5-10, 3-4) are 0-9 on the road, looking for its first win Sunday when they take on the Patriots (18-7, 6-1) for two more games.
GC managed just four hits in the 6-0 loss in Springfield, Ky. The host school opened a four-run lead in the bottom of the second on five hits against Tyler Arthur. The senior took the loss, going six innings and allowing all six runs.
