Losing 3-2 in an extra-innings matchup against Georgetown, Creighton baseball saw its 10-game win streak fade last weekend as they also lost their first conference game of the year.

With four conference series left in the season, the Jays stand at 14-8 overall and 6-1 in Big East play.

The Bluejays held the control in the first three games of the series as they delivered two shutouts in the first two matchups followed by a 4-2 win in the third game.

Sophomore pitcher Dylan Tebrake recorded a win in the first game with a 7-0 win in seven innings. Tebrake earned Big East pitcher of the week honors for his performance in the matchup.

Freshman Cade Lommel recorded the win in the second game as the Jays again forced a shutout over the Hoyas.

It was Lommel’s career-high for a shutout.

In Saturday’s game, Creighton started down 1-0 before a couple runs in the fourth inning put them ahead.

After tying it back up at 2, the Hoyas allowed Creighton two more runs, eventually leading to the 4-2 win and the third victory of the series for Creighton.

In the final game of the series, the Hoyas and Jays pushed to an extra inning after a 2-2 standstill.

Starting with a 2-0 edge, the Bluejays gave up two runs in the bottom of the fifth off a Georgetown homer from AJ Lotsis.

In the extra frame, Lotsis recorded a run from a sacrifice hit into right field.

Freshman Alan Roden, senior Dax Roper, junior Evan Spry and freshman Nolan Clifford each recorded hits in the matchup.

Roden, who had six hits total in the series, earned a spot on the Big East honor roll.

The Jays return home Friday for a fourgame series against St. John’s.

After the series, the Bluejays are set to play Butler, Seton Hall and Xavier before the end of the regular season.
