The Bulldogs hosted Georgetown College on Tuesday for a doubleheader. Georgetown got two wins over Wesleyan, 5-4, and 9-4.
An error in the first game helped Georgetown strike for three runs in the first inning off TWC starter Zach Fleshman. The Bulldogs answered in the home half when a walk and Jake Stone's home run cut the gap to 3-2. Georgetown added to its lead in the fifth, plating two runs with a two-out triple. Wesleyan put a runner in scoring position in each at-bat, but didn't score again until the fifth. Brad Carpenter's double, Travis Burnside's run-scoring and an RBI double by Stone cut the deficit to one, 5-4. Stone, however, was picked off and the play hurt even worse when Trey Griffin followed with what could have been a game-tying double, but was left stranded. The Bulldogs had only one hit in their final two at-bats.
Zach Fleshman went five innings, allowing five runs on eight hits, while striking out one and walking one. Brady Frey and Justin Sprenger pitched one inning of scoreless relief. Wesleyan was out-hit 9-7 with Stone going 2-for-4 with three RBIs and a run scored.
In the second game, an error led to a Georgetown run in the first and the Tigers used three more errors to fuel a four-run second frame to lead, 5-0. Wesleyan got a run back in the third inning on a leadoff single from Brandon Walker, a sacrifice bunt and throwing error. Georgetown put the game away with four runs on five straight hits in the fifth, chasing Wesleyan starter Brent Adheen in favor of reliever Tyler Wilson. Hits by Stone, Griffin, Josh McCray, Brackton Smith and Michael Carballo in the sixth produced the game's final three runs. Georgetown had nine hits and TWC eight.
The Bulldogs travel to Union College this weekend to play at double header on Saturday beginning at 1:00 pm and then a single game on Sunday at 1:00 pm.
