GC baseball sweep Senior Weekend

Staff Writer

Baseball_(crop)Georgetown College finished off a great regular season in the Mid-South Conference with a sweep of Pikeville College. Once again, they went a week only losing one game and sweeping the rest. Starting with a revenge game against Union College, the Tigers went out with style.

On April 16, the Tigers played Union College after losing 8-18 a week before. This game was much closer than that one, and took place at Georgetown instead of on the road. The final score was 6-4 in favor of the tigers.

Next, the Tigers played Miami University—Hamilton in back-to-back games on April 17. MU-H took the first game 4-10 as Miami got hot in the third inning. The second game would have vastly different results as Jordan Nekola shut down the Harriers and Georgetown won 8-0 in seven innings.

The final three conference games took place on April 19 and 20 against rival Pikeville College. The Tigers dominated in all three games against the Bears to end the season (after what was supposed to be the last game against Indiana University Southeast was canceled). Senior Matt Smith gave up three hits, struck out five, and walked three batters in the 5-1 victory of the first game. On April 20, the Tigers played twice and won the first game 8-0. The second game was won; all the seniors, except for injured Abe Mitchell, played in the three game series. The second game was won 10-1 when the Tigers came to life in the fifth and had six runs on six hits. Chad Richie and Chris Villabolos pitched a strikeout to end both of their final regular season games while Tyler Arthur and Shaun Meyer picked up the wins.

The Tigers will start the post-season against St. Catherine’s on Thursday at 7 p.m.
