Pitching leads way in Hoyas' win vs. Cavs

  AC Carter provided the sole run of the day with a home run in the fourth.

Charlottesville, Va. -- Simon Mathews pitched five perfect innings and three Hoya pitchers combined on a two-hit shutout as Georgetown upset No. 12 Virginia 1-0 on Wednesday afternoon. The game was played at Virginia's Davenport Field.

Mathews needed just 49 pitches in retiring all 15 batters he faced. He had two strikeouts while inducing five ground outs and eight fly outs. He was taken out after five innings due to pitch count limitations. Will Brown pitched three scoreless innings in relief, giving up two singles and registering one strikeout. David Ellingson pitched a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout to pick up his third save of the season.

AC Carter provided the offense for the Hoyas (9-10), launching a high solo home run to left field in the fourth inning. It was his second home run of the season, both of which have come in the past four games. He had a grand slam in game one of Saturday's doubleheader against Brown.

Virginia (14-8) got its first baserunner with a one-out single off of Brown in the sixth inning. However, Brown quickly got two ground balls to get out of the inning.

The Cavaliers got their second single in the eighth inning, again with one out. Again, Brown shut the door, getting the next two batters to fly out right field.

Ellingson came into the game in the ninth and easily retired the side on a ground ball to second base, a line out to third base and a strikeout.
