GU Takes Two of Three From Yale

The Georgetown baseball team won two of three games against Yale to continue its strong start to the 2004 season. The Hoyas split a doubleheader on Saturday, March 6, and won the rubber match on Sunday, March 7, improving their record to 9-6.

Georgetown dropped Saturday’s opener to the Bulldogs, 2-1, in extra innings. Sophomore outfielder Timmy Jones put the Hoyas ahead with an RBI single in the fourth inning, but the Bulldogs scored the tying run after it was down to its last strike in the top of the seventh inning. The Bulldogs scored the winning run in the ninth on an RBI groundout.

Sophomore Stephen Burns pitched a strong game for the Hoyas, allowing one run on four hits while striking out six in seven innings.

Georgetown bounced back to win the second game, 3-1. Junior Travis Danysh stifled the Yale bats, going 7.2 innings while surrendering just one unearned run. Junior Thomas Braun finished the game for his first save. Senior Mike Lombardi, sophomore Drew Dargen and sophomore Matt Johnson each drove in a run.

The Hoyas claimed the series with a dramatic, 10-inning victory on Sunday. Trailing by two and down to its last out, Georgetown tied the game on an RBI single by junior Jim Supple. Senior Ron Cano doubled home Jones in the bottom of the 10th to give Georgetown an 8-7 win.

Lombardi and Jones each had a pair of RBIs. Freshman Mark Dutmers pitched 2.2 scoreless innings to pick up his first collegiate win.
