COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Creighton’s outstanding pitching was on full display Friday as the Bluejays swept a doubleheader from Georgetown, 6-0 and 5-0.
Creighton has recorded shutouts in five of its last six games as it extended its win streak to nine. On Friday, the Jays allowed eight hits — all singles — in 16 innings.
Ace Dylan Tebrake set the tone as he threw a two-hit complete game in the seven-inning opener. Tebrake needed just 86 pitches — 61 were strikes — to improve to 5-0 this season. He struck out eight and didn’t allow a Hoya to reach third base.
While Tebrake was finishing strong by retiring the final seven batters, CU’s offense put the opener away with a four-run fourth inning.
Dax Roper hit a two-run home run, then Andrew Meggs and Alan Roden had back-to-back RBI singles to cap the inning. Roden drove in two runs in the opener, while Meggs scored twice.
Roden stayed hot, hitting a two-run homer to right in the sixth to put the Jays up 3-0 in the nightcap. Roden also doubled and scored in the eighth on Parker Upton’s single.
Ryan Mantle put Creighton ahead in the second game with a solo homer in the second inning.
Freshman Cade Lommel put together his longest outing this spring as he worked into the seventh inning, allowing six hits and striking out five. Relievers Ryan Windham and John Sakowski didn’t allow a hit while combining for the last three innings.
Creighton and Georgetown will play again Saturday at 1 p.m.
