WILDASIN EXTENDS HIT STREAK TO NINE GAMES IN 10-7 WIN OVER GEORGETOWN
Dan Carpenter went 4-for-5 from the plate to pace UMBC to a 10-7 win over Georgetown.
Baltimore, Md. – The UMBC Baseball team (5-16) defeated Georgetown (17-14) in non-conference baseball action on Wednesday afternoon at The Baseball Factory Field at UMBC by a final score of 10-7. Kyle Wildasin (Hanover, Pa./Southwestern) extended his hit streak to nine games and went yard for the fifth time in the last six games. Wildasin also picked up the save, his second of the season, as starting pitcher Zach Clark (Newark, Del./.Newark) went 7.0 innings to get the win, his second of the year.
Clark and Hoyas’ starter Travis Danysh made it through the first inning perfectly before both teams added runs in the second. The Hoyas in the top of the second tallied an unearned run as Andrew Cleary reached on an error and later scored on a sacrifice fly by teammate Matthew Johnson.
Wildasin quickly tied the game as he hit a shot over the left center field wall for his fifth homerun of the year, all coming in the previous six games. The Retrievers loaded the bases and added two more runs in the inning, one coming from the bat of Chris Cerullo (Toms River, N.J./Gloucester C.C.) who singled to center and the other off a walk to Mike Orlando (Rochester, N.Y./W. Irondequoit). The Retrievers sent nine batters to the plate in the second but were only able to manage three runs as they stranded three on base.
After a scoreless third inning, the Retrievers tallied a run in each of the following five innings, including Orlando hitting his first homerun of the year with a two run shot in the seventh inning.
Orlando’s homerun gave the Retrievers a little more breathing room after the Hoyas rallied for four runs in the top of the seventh to close the Retriever lead to 7-6. With two outs and no one aboard, Johnson singled and moved to third a batter later when teammate Derek Degrijs doubled. Parker Brooks doubled driving in two runs and later scored on a single by Jim Supple. Supple crossed the plate as well with the Hoyas tallying four runs on four hits and a Retriever error.
The Retrievers’ two runs in the seventh and one in the eighth allowed Clark to hold on to the win as he went 7.0 innings allowing six hits, six runs, four earned runs, and striking out three. Wildasin relieved Blake Phipps (Ellicott City, Md./Catonsville, C.C.) who faced two batters to allow one hit and strikeout two in the final two innings to get the save.
Five Hoyas’ took the mound as Danysh received the loss going 5.0 innings allowing five runs on seven hits.
The Retrievers were led by Dan Carpenter (Glen Burnie, Md./Old Mill), who went 4-for-5 day from the plate with a run and RBI, along with Wildasin, who went 2-for-5 with two runs scored and an RBI. Brooks and Orlando each went 2-for-4 with two runs scored as Brooks recorded an RBI and Orlando batted in three Retrievers.
