Kyle Fieger's Complete Game Helps Georgetown College to Opening Round Win
Submitted on May 14, 2019
Kyle Fieger has pitched complete games in his last two starts, and his performance Monday helped Georgetown College baseball to a 6-1 opening round victory over Indiana University Southeast in the 2019 NAIA Baseball National Championship. In nine innings, Finger only gave up six hits and one earned run. It’s Fieger's second win over IUS this season.
GC’s offense came to life in the fourth inning after managing just one hit in the first 10 batters. The Tigers drew a pair of walks before a balk set up a two-out double by Randall Schab for all the offense the home team needed. Shota Usuda singled to score Schab for the first insurance run.
Three more runs on three hits put the final tallies on the board in the fifth inning. Tyler Wagner reached on an error and Val Stammler doubled to set the stage for Chris Gilbody. He singled to score those two, then scored himself on Ryan Gaynor's double.
Georgetown managed a hit in each of the final three at-bats, but did not score nor need to score any more, as Kyle Fieger proved too much for IUS on the mound.
Georgetown College is back in action at 3:00 pm on Tuesday against Georgia Gwinnett.
