GW Baseball Falls At Stetson, 7-2
Five-Run Fifth Sinks Colonials
Feb. 18, 2012
DeLand, Fla. - Senior Matt Murakami collected two hits and junior Derek Brown drove in two runs but it was not enough as the George Washington baseball team dropped a 7-2 decision at Stetson on Saturday afternoon at Melching Field.
GW (0-2) starter Brian Derner held the Hatters hitless through the first two innings before allowing an unearned run in the top of the third. The Hatters added five runs in the fourth inning to extend their lead to 6-0. Derner pitched four innings, allowed six runs (four earned) with three walks.
Sophomore Aaron Weisberg entered the game in relief in the top of the bottom of the fifth inning and allowed just two hits and one run (unearned) over the final four innings with three strikeouts and three walks.
After Stetson scored an unearned run off Weisberg in the eighth, the Colonials were able to push across two runs in the top of the ninth. Senior Stephen Oswald singled to left with two outs and advanced to second following a base hit by senior Matt Murakami. Brown then laced a two-run double down the right field line to cut the deficit to 7-2, but that was as close as the Colonials would get.
Lindsey Caughel picked up the win for Stetson (2-0) after scattering four hits over seven shutout innings with four strikeouts.
The Colonials and Hatters will meet in the series finale on Sunday afternoon at Melching Field. Junior Tyler McCarthy will get the ball for the Colonials against Stetson's Will Dorsey. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m.
