A pitcher's duel

Georgetown's Browner remembers 2009 Div. 3 North Semifinal

(Continued)

“There was a guy on second with no outs,” Browner said. “It was a 2-1 game. We had a pickoff play on and we picked the guy off at second. Being a freshman, I’m going to trust my captain and shortstop, whatever he says. I trusted him and I saw that the guy had a big lead and I threw it to him. And after that, they never scored. I’ll take it.”

But things remained tense all the way until the game’s final moments.

“From what I recall, they had a guy on second (base),” Browner said of the final inning. “And they grounded the ball back to me for the last out. I remember I threw the ball over to (first) and instead of running to the first baseman, I ran back to my catcher. I was jumping up and down. I don’t know if we pig-piled or not, but being part of a senior-led group with a freshman on the mound, it was special for me.”
