Box Score: Game One
Box Score: Game Two

The Princeton baseball team was swept by Georgetown in doubleheader action Friday in Bethesda, Md. The Hoyas' employed a three-run ninth inning rally to edge past the Tigers, 5-4, to open the series. Princeton (1-9) was unable to find its offensive stride in game two and suffered a 3-0 shutout loss.

Freshman Danny Hoy led the offense on the day, going 4-for-8 with a run.

Game One

After two scoreless frames, Georgetown capitalized on a third inning error to go up 1-0.

Princeton stranded four base runners in the first through fifth innings before tying things up 1-1 in the sixth. With runners on second and third, Ryan Albert knocked in a run on a sacrifice fly.

The Tigers earned their first advantage of the day with a two-run seventh inning. Pinch hitter Alec Keller hit a two-RBI double to right center to put Princeton up 3-1.

They were not done scoring yet, adding a fourth run in the eighth off a Blake Thomsen RBI sacrifice fly.

In his season debut, sophomore shortstop Thomsen went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run to lead the offense. Hoy was Princeton's only other multi-hit performer, going 2-for-4 with a run.

The Tigers' lead quickly dissipated in the ninth, as Georgetown's first three batters reached to load the bases and the Hoyas scored three times on four hits.

Starting pitcher Zak Hermans went 5.0 innings, striking out four and gave up six hits and one run in 20 batters faced.

Game Two

Despite both sides tallying five hits apiece and Georgetown committing an error, the Tigers were unable to find their offensive stride and fell 3-0.

Princeton saw its best chance to score in the top of the first, but ended the inning with the bases loaded.

Both sides were scoreless through 3.5, but a Trevor Matern two-out RBI single made it a 1-0 game in favor of the Hoyas.

Georgetown added to its lead in the sixth off a Christian Venditti two-run home run.

Hoy went 2-for-4 for the second consecutive game, while Alex Flink, Mike Ford and Steve Harrington each had a hit each.

The series concludes Sunday, Mar. 18 at 1 p.m.
