Baseball Edged by Georgetown, 3-2, in Series Finale

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Senior catcher Josh Huntley (Aurora, Colo.) had three hits, but the Brown baseball team fell to Georgetown, 3-2, to close out the three-game series on Sunday at Murray Stadium. 

Brown snapped a six-game winning streak to move to 6-7 overall, while the Hoyas improved to 14-10 on the season after dropping both ends of a doubleheader on Saturday.

Huntley went 3-for-5 to pace the Brown offense, while Jake Rosander (Fullerton, Calif.) and Rich Ciufo (Medford, N.Y.) drove in one run apiece.

Max Ritchie (Woodbridge, Calif.) gave up just two earned runs over seven innings with six strikeouts in the loss. Dante Bosnic (Lutz, Fla.) and Samuel Hauser (New York, N.Y.) provided back-to-back scoreless frames in relief. Kevin Superko limited the Bears to just four hits over seven innings to earn the win. 

Georgetown opened the game with one run first on a groundout and then added two more runs in the second on Jake Bernstein's two-run single for the three-run advantage.

Superko kept the Bears off the board over the first six innings, until Ciufo hit an RBI single through the left side in the bottom of the seventh, trimming the lead to 3-1. Brown tacked on another run in the eighth when Rosander sent in Sam Grigo (Westbrook, Conn.) with a sacrifice fly to left field.

Brown continued to fight in the ninth inning with two outs, as Grigo reached on an error and Huntley followed with a single, but Nick Morreale got out of the jam with a final groundout to earn the save. 

Brown will visit Bryant on Tuesday at 3 PM.
