The No. 23 Tigers (8-3) played an early morning game to get in the second of two against Reinhardt University, taking a split with the Eagles. Georgetown College baseball tallied five in the fifth, blowing the game open for the eventual 7-4 victory.
Georgetown, trailing 2-1, exploded in the fifth to take that run back and then some.
After Tanner Unkel's leadoff single, small ball allowed for the Tigers to get rolling. Nick Kociolek bunted Unkel to second and Ryan Rodriguez was trying to do the same. RU misplayed his bunt, giving Unkel third and Rodriguez first.
Georgetown College baseball had another rough start Tuesday, giving up four first inning runs to Reinhardt University. The Eagles (17-5) used two, two-run homeruns to hang the decisive number in the first frame. They went on for a 7-2 win.
The No. 23 Tigers (7-3) got their offense going in the third inning, but stranded two in scoring position after they reached second and third with only one out. Tiger pitching was going strong at this point, setting RU down in order in the second and third.
In the top of the fourth, GC broke through with its first run. Martin Lemus hit a one-out single, took second on a wild throw and took third on a routine ground out. Steven Mancilla hit a two-out RBI single to the left side for a 4-1 game. Rick Reyes followed with a single, but Armando Lomeli's ground out ended the rally and stranded two more Tigers.
Georgetown College baseball has already missed nine games this season due to winter weather. Titan has once again forced No. 23 Tigers (7-2) to adjust their schedule. Fortunately, this time they are playing a team to the south and instead of playing at home, will travel to Georgia Tuesday and Wednesday.
"This has been very tough on our schedule, but when you live in Kentucky you come to expect the unexpected with the weather," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "I'm glad that Reinhardt was able to work things out, and we will get these games in before another big conference weekend."
Georgetown will go to Waleski, Ga. for a 4 pm, single game Tuesday against the Eagles and then both teams will play a neutral site, nine-inning contest Wednesday in Marietta, Ga.
Georgetown College baseball finished up the weekend series with No. 10 Cumberland University. The two Mid-South Conference front runners split on Saturday.
"We battled Friday and the first game Saturday, but struggled in game three. You can't do that with a team as good as Cumberland," said Tiger coach Micah Baumfeld. "It is early so I know my guys will learn from this, and we will be a different team moving forward."
The No. 23 Tigers (7-2, 1-2 MSC) needed a ninth inning rally for the 5-4 victory in the first game Saturday. They were up 3-1 most of the game, but CU (10-5, 2-1) is a tough team to hold down. The second game was all Cumberland in a 7-1 win.
Tyler Arthur took the mound, going eight innings and left trailing 4-3. Craig Ramsey shut CU down in the ninth, no hits and one walk to the three batters he faced. Georgetown's offense came to life for its first runs since the third inning.
Georgetown College baseball battled back and forth with No. 10 Cumberland University in the Mid-South Conference opener, but couldn't rally for a third time in a 6-5 loss.
The No. 23 Tigers (6-1, 0-1) clawed back from 1-0 and 4-2 deficits for leads, but the Bulldogs (10-4, 1-0) had the final rally in the top of the ninth with one out. Chris Hall singled to center to start the comeback. CU followed that with a shot to deep right field. Hall moved to third and Justin Byrd was tagged out trying to stretch his hit to a double.
Sam Lind's rope to the centerfield fence tied the game and Ricky Coleman brought Byrd in for the difference in the game.
