PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – Five Hawks recorded multi-hit games, but the Saint Joseph’s baseball team ultimately fell to Georgetown, 5-4, at North Charlotte Regional Park on Wednesday afternoon.  The game was Saint Joseph’s first in the Snowbird Classic.

Saint Joseph’s (5-5) scored three in the first to grab an early lead.  With one out in the inning, Brian O'Keefe extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a single to left.  He then advanced to third due to a throwing error on a failed pickoff before scoring on a wild pitch.  Tommy Cunningham would then single home Collin Forgey, who had walked, before Mike Muha doubled home Cunningham to put the Hawks on top, 3-0.

Georgetown (6-7) got two back in the second as Steve Anderson led off with a double and scored on a double by Christian Venditti.  Venditti then came in to score two batters later on a groundout by Evan Ryan.

The Hoyas tied the game in the third as Venditti lofted a sacrifice fly to center.

GU went ahead in the seventh on an RBI single by Nick Collins and added an insurance run in the eighth on a single by Eric Webber.

The Hawks threatened in the ninth, scoring a run as Forgey and Stefan Kancylarz ripped back-to-back doubles, but Georgetown’s Tim Davis stranded runners on first and third to secure the win.

Max Allen earned the win for the Hoyas to improve to 2-0 on the year, while Ryan Kelly fell to 0-1 with the loss.  Davis notched his first save of the season.

The teams will take Thursday off before returning to the diamond on Friday.  First pitch is set for 3:00 p.m.
