Dolshun Lifts Retrievers to 8-5 Victory Over Georgetown on Tuesday

Baltimore, Md.—UMBC baseball came from behind to take down the Hoyas, 8-5 on Tuesday night. Senior Hunter Dolshun (Warwick, N.Y./Warwick Valley) provided the spark with three hits and four RBI with two of the hits coming as home runs.

Dolshun answered to lead off the second, blasting a leadoff solo home run to left center to cut the deficit to 4-1. UMBC would cut the deficit to 4-3 after a two-RBI double from Dalton Stewart (Sharpsburg, Md./Boonsboro) scored Zack Bright (Fairfax Station, Va./WT Woodson) and Collin Stack (Jamestown, N.Y./Monroe CC), who singled in the inning. 

The Retrievers would take the lead in the fifth, after Christian Torres (Miami, Fla./Miami Senior) reached on an error and AJ Wright (Cherry Hill, N.J./Cherry Hill West) singled to left to lead off the inning. Dolshun came up and blasted a home run to left field, putting UMBC in front 6-4. 

UMBC added some insurance in the sixth, getting a two-run home run from Andrew Casali (New Canaan, Conn./New Canaan) that scored Stewart, making it 8-4. 

The Hoyas would try to cut into the lead, getting a run in the eighth but the Retrievers held on for an 8-5 win on Tuesday.

Dolshun collected home run eight and nine in the game, adding four RBI and three hits. Patrick Phillips (Richmond, Va./Old Dominion) picked up his second win, going 1.1 innings in relief. Cory Callahan (Sykesville, Md./Good Counsel) earned save number four with two strikeouts.
