UMBC Baseball Loses Fourth Straight, 6-5, to Georgetown
BALTIMORE--The UMBC baseball team dropped their fourth straight, 6-4, to visiting Georgetown on Tuesday night at The Baseball Factory Field. The Retrievers fall to 12-37, while the Hoyas improve to 20-32.
Junior Sean Rae (0-3) is debited with the loss, after giving up the winning run in the fifth inning.
The Retrievers threatened in the bottom of the seventh, with back-to-back homers by sophomore Tom Meaney and junior Joe Fowler to put the Retrievers within two, but couldn't overcome the six runs the Hoyas put together.
Mark McLaughlin started the scoring off for the Hoyas in the top of the third on a Retriever error and Brandon Davis added two more with a homer to give the Hoyas a 3-0 lead.
The Hoyas added one more each in the fourth, fifth, and seventh innings for the 6-0 lead, before Meaney answered in the bottom of the seventh with a two-run shot to deep left field. Fowler followed that with a solo shot of his own to put the Retrievers within two of the Hoyas.
The Retrievers added one more in the bottom of the ninth off junior Will Delawter's double down the third base line, but couldn't overcome the Hoyas, falling 6-5.
The Retrievers will make a last home stand this weekend when they play host to Stony Brook in a four-game conference series in their last games of the season beginning with a 7 p.m. game on Friday night.
