Bethesda, Md.—UMBC baseball suffered a 1-0 setback to Georgetown on Tuesday afternoon. The Retrievers had five hits, but committed three errors on the day in the loss. UMBC falls to 1-7 on the year.
The Retrievers found themselves in a couple of jams early on, including a bases loaded jam in the third. However freshman starter Jacob Christian (Nokesville, Va./Patriot) got a ground out to end the inning.
The Hoyas broke through for the only run of the game in the sixth. After an error by the Retrievers, Georgetown put runners on the corners with one out. The next batter laced a double to left center to score the lone run of the contest.
UMBC threatened in the top of the seventh, loading the bases after an Anthony Gatto (Hauppauge, N.Y./Smithtown West) walk, and singles by Hunter Dolshun (Warwick, N.Y./Warwick Valley) and Connor Hax (Bowie, Md./Bishop McNamara). The threat would end there, as the Hoyas got a line out to end the inning.
Georgetown would keep the Retrievers off the score sheet the rest of the way, taking a 1-0 victory.
Five different Retrievers had hits, as four different pitchers saw action on Tuesday. Starter Jacob Christian went three innings, giving up two hits and striking out two.
UMBC returns to the diamond with a weekend series at James Madison this weekend.
