LWC Baseball sweeps Saturday doubleheader with Georgetown
By Matt Wurzburger
GEORGETOWN, KY (Sat 15 Apr 2017) - The Lindsey Wilson baseball team swept Georgetown (KY) 5-2 and 3-2 on the road on Saturday to win the three-game Mid-South Conference series.
Saturday's sweep improves the Blue Raiders to 25-19 overall and 10-5 in the MSC. Georgetown slips to 26-17 and 9-9 in conference games.
Steven Paredes had four hits across both games. Ray Gonzalez went 3-for-7 with five runs batted in on Saturday, including a career-high three RBIs in game two.
Game 1 - Lindsey Wilson 5, Georgetown 2
A three-run top of the fifth inning proved decisive in game one's 5-2 victory.
The Blue Raiders entered the fifth trailing 2-1. Connor Anderson started the scoring rally with a leadoff triple then scored on Mauricio Guadarrama's bunt. Guadarrama reached second on the play due to a wild throw and then advanced to third on a balk. The next batter, Tanner Moore, picked up Guadarrama with a run-scoring single through the hole on the left side of the infield. Moore moved up 90 feet on Georgetown's second balk of the inning then stole third base, where he scored on a sacrifice bunt by Gonzalez.
Lindsey Wilson tacked on a security run in the top of the ninth inning on Gonzalez's run-scoring single. The senior from Pomona, California batted 1-for-3 from the plate in the first game with two runs driven in.
The Blue Raiders led 1-0 after two-and-a-half innings before Georgetown scored in the third and fourth innings to take a 2-1 lead.
Paredes led off the second with his first of three hits in game one then stole second base. Jan Carlos Ortiz reached on a bunt single, which moved Paredes to third base. Anderson produced the game's first run with a successful squeeze bunt to bring home Paredes.
Georgetown got to Lindsey Wilson starter Aaron Pearcy for a lone run in the home half of the third. Pearcy allowed a leadoff single to Kyle Jackson, who then stole second base. Following a sacrifice bunt, Jackson scored on a Brandon Benson single. Benson stole second base, but a line-drive double play by Sam Medina ended the inning without further damage.
The Tigers scratched across a run with two outs in the bottom of the fourth to take a 2-1 lead. Pearcy started the two-out rally by hitting Kendall King. After King stole second base, Ryan Garner singled into right-center field to drive in the run.
Pearcy encountered trouble in the bottom of the fifth inning before being replaced by Louis Corral. Georgetown put runners on first and second with one out, prompting the move to the bullpen. Corral then retired the next two batters to escape the jam.
Corral closed out the game for the Blue Raiders - allowing four hits across 4-2/3 innings. The Anaheim, Calif. native picked up the win in game one and is now 3-1 this season with a 3.24 earned run average.
Georgetown starter Kyle Fieger took the loss after allowing four runs on eight hits across eight innings.
Benson and Garner went a combined 7-for-9 in game one. The remaining Georgetown players batted 4-for-25.
Game 2 - Lindsey Wilson 3, Georgetown 2
The hot bat of Gonzalez and a complete game by Ricky Winfield carried Lindsey Wilson to a 3-2 victory in the second game.
Gonzalez batted 2-for-4 with a home run and drove in all three runs from the leadoff spot in game two.
Winfield overcame a rocky start to go the distance and earn his sixth victory of the season.
Georgetown put up two runs on Winfield in the first inning on three hits and left two runners stranded. The first five Tigers reached base in that inning - including Rodnee Little, whose double into right field brought home two runners. Following the double, Winfield hit Garner to load the bases but struck out the next batter for the first out of the inning. With the bases still loaded, Winfield induced a ground-ball double play to stop the bleeding.
The Tigers threatened again in the next inning, putting runners on second and third with one out. Once again, Winfield conjured a strikeout in a big moment before getting a line out to end the inning.
Winfield found his footing after the second inning, setting down Georgetown in order in both the third and fourth innings and allowing just two more base hits - both singles - for the remainder of the game.
The Blue Raiders struggled early against Georgetown starter Michael Koltak - going down in order in the first three innings. Gonzalez broke through against Koltak with a leadoff home run in the top of the fourth inning - the first homer of his career.
Lindsey Wilson produced the game-tying and go-ahead runs in the top of the fifth inning. The Blue Raiders loaded the bases with one out to set up a two-run single by Gonzalez, which scored Ben Giland and Guadarrama.
Koltak was tagged with the loss after allowing three runs on three hits over five innings of work.
