Georgetown College baseball hit it out of the park on Senior Day – literally. The Tigers (30-18) scored most of their runs Friday in a doubleheader with Brescia by way of a homerun. John Shattles got the day started and four more went over the fence as GC won 10-0 and 2-0.

Coming into the day the team had 25, tacking on five more is one-sixth of its season total.

"Pretty impressive day from the plate," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "Senior day is an emotional day to start and then in the spring it is so difficult to know if you will get it in with the weather. We are thankful Brescia could come today and play two and we got this chance to do it right for our seven seniors."

At the time, it appeared frosting on the cake. Sam Medina sent the first pitch in his second at bat deep over the fence in right field. Despite Georgetown College being on cruise control at this juncture, the run served as the game-winner Wednesday against University of Cincinnati-Clermont, 7-3.

The one-out solo home run put the Tigers (28-17) up by four against UCC (21-13) and pitcher Jordan Magers was dominating. The Cougars had been set down in order the first three innings and continued through four and two-thirds. Then a two-out walk ended the perfect game.

In the fifth, a pair of one-out singles ended the no-no and made it interesting when an error extended the inning. However, an RBI single to right had the visitors a bit greedy as they sent a runner all the way around from first. A perfect cutoff by Larkin Heldt led to an out at the plate. When the dust settled it was 4-3.

Life is precious, something Georgetown College baseball alum Trent Martin not only grasps but values. He saw his very active, athletic life style be thrown for a loop several years ago when he was diagnosed with leukemia. Through treatment he got better and has made a full recovery, but knows his story is a rare happy note against this disease. However, his touch with it did motivate him to find ways to educate and raise awareness for how others can help.

Leukemia is a type of cancer that battles the blood cells. One of the best methods to combat it is through bone marrow transplants. Bone marrow matches are rare, generally are found inside family members, but have been known to exist in unknown matches.

Georgetown College baseball dropped a pair of close Mid-South Conference games to Lindsey Wilson College Saturday afternoon. The Blue Raiders used big fifth innings in both to take the lead it never relinquished. LWC won 5-2 and 3-2.

In game one, Connor Anderson opened with a lead-off triple that applied the pressure to GC, which was leading 2-1 at the time. He scored as Kyle Fieger pondered trying to get him out on a squeeze bunt, then Fieger threw wildly to first. Everyone was safe and the error allowed Mauricio Guadarrama to take second. He scored on Tanner Morris' single and then the visitors' manufactured the third run for the lead.

They added a run in the ninth for good measure.

Rodnee Little hit a walk-off single, helping Georgetown College baseball take a very important game-one win, 3-2, over visiting Lindsey Wilson College. The Tigers (26-15, 9-7) sit behind the Blue Raiders (23-19, 8-5) in Mid-South Conference play. However, this is GC's final conference series and LWC has one more next weekend.

All three games are important to both teams, evident in the pitching duel Friday at Robert N. Wilson Field. Michael Conrad scattered four hits, struck out eight and gave up no runs in seven innings of work. He took a no-decision. The biggest inning was in the top of the third when the Blue Raiders loaded the bases with no outs. Conrad got the visitors to fly out in shallow left, no room for tagging up, and then struck out the next two.
