Game 2 IN Tech 4 GC 2

KINGSPORT, Tenn. - Brandon Alger went the distance to help No. 3 seed Indiana Tech defeat No. 2 seed Georgetown 4-2 on Thursday in the NAIA Baseball National Championship Opening Round - Kingsport Bracket at Hunter Wright Stadium.

Alger hurled 135 pitches and had only one difficult innning, the ninth, as he upped his record to 8-2 on the year.

Down 4-0 in the bottom of the ninth, Georgetown (45-10) loaded the bases with no outs. A David Higuera sac fly drove in the first run for the Tigers, and Brian Smith made it 4-2 with another sac fly. However, Alger closed the door on the Georgetown comeback attempt by getting final batter to fly out to center.

The left-hander allowed two runs on five hits, three walks and hit batter with eight strikeouts.

Indiana Tech grabbed the lead early on, scoring a run in each the first and second innings for a 2-0 advantage. It remained a two-run game until the eighth when the Warriors (40-20 overall) tacked on two more runs thanks to RBIs from Thomas Barnes and Craig Hermann to make it 4-0.

The insurance runs were needed as Georgetown scored twice in the ninth to break up the shutout and make the final 4-2.

Hermann, the Warriors' shortstop and leadoff hitter, paced his team's offense as he went 3-for-4 with two RBIs and run scored. Catcher Iggy Mackenzie finished 2-for-4 with a RBI.

Tiger hurler Tyler Arthur suffered his first loss of the year, dropping him to 10-1 as he surrendered two earned runs on nine hits and two walks with six strikeouts.

Georgetown will now face Campbellsville at 11 a.m. Friday in an elimination game, while Indiana Tech will play the Tennessee Wesleyan/St. Francis winner Friday at 2:30 p.m.
