MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Georgetown College baseball got off the snide in NAIA Baseball Championship Opening Round action tallying its first win Friday morning in Montgomery's elimination bracket. The No. 21 Tigers (36-18) got behind early, but quickly responded and rolled 12-2 over Mount Vernon Nazarene (32-17) to advance to this evening's game against Indiana Tech (32-17).

"It's good to end that little streak and finally get a win in the opening round," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "We knew we were hitting well and like hitting here, but it was a matter of stringing things together. In the bottom of the second we took the lead, but really saw our offense come to life in the third."
