The Eagles cut the lead to 3-2 in their half of the third inning but GW second baseman Tom Shanley (Stanfordville, NY / Pine Plains), who recorded four hits in five at-bats in the game, put the Colonials up 5-2 with a bases loaded single in the fourth inning.

The Colonials made it 8-2 in the sixth inning when first baseman Ryan Roberson (Silver Spring, MD / James H. Blake) drove in a pair of runs with a double.
GSU crept back to make it an 8-5 contest, but Rosenblat's two-run knock in the eighth inning sealed the game at 10-5 for the Colonials.

Reliever Nate CasaGrande (1-0) (Bridgewater, NJ / College of New Jersey) struck out three hitters in three innings of work and earned the win.
GSU first baseman Greg Dowling posted a 3-for-4 game while Smith and shortstop Brandon Ponder each knocked in two runs for the Eagles.
