WINTER PARK, Fla. (March 7, 2011) - Closer Matt White kept Georgetown scoreless in the final three innings of play, while Chris Holloway and Kevin Mager scored the go-ahead runs in the bottom of the eighth to capture Rollins' first win of the 63rd Annual Rollins College Baseball Week with the Tars defeating the Georgetown Hoyas 10-8 Monday night at Alfond Stadium.

With the win, Rollins improves to 12-5 on the season and are 1-1 for Baseball Week. 

Pitching 2 2/3 innings of one-hit baseball, Matt White (2-0) picked up his second win of the season, to go along with a season-high six strikeouts.  White faced nine batters and gave up no walks.

Rollins scored multiple runs in three frames with a pair of runs in the third and sixth, along with a four-run fifth.  The Tars' 14 hits was the second consecutive game in double-figures and 10th on the season. 

At the end of five innings, Rollins held a 6-2 lead over the Hoyas, but starting pitcher Mike Herrmann and Alex Venegas combined gave up six runs in the sixth to put Georgetown up8-6.  Rollins then took back two runs to tie the score in the home half of the inning on a one-out bases clearing double by Max Pavy driving in Chris Holloway and Steve Betcherman. 

Betcherman notched a career-high four hits against the Hoyas, to go along with two runs and a double.  Pavy had a stellar night as he finished 2-for-4 with a season-high four RBIs, to go with a double, and a run scored.

Taking the mound in the top of the seventh, Matt White kept Georgetown scoreless and gave up his one hit in the top of the ninth.  White struck out the side for the second time this season in the eighth.

Chris Holloway, who scored the go-ahead run in the eighth, reached first safely on a single up the middle and scored on a Kevin Mager infield hit.  Mager then made his way to home plate on a John Avanzino RBI single.

Mager notched two hits against the Hoyas with three RBIs, two runs, and a double.

Georgetown closer Neal Dennison (0-1) took the loss in one inning of work.

Rollins will take to the field tomorrow afternoon as the Tars host the Penn Quakers.  First pitch is slated for 6 p.m.  For live action of the Tars, check out the Tars Sports Network at
