Feb. 19, 2012
DeLand, Fla. - The George Washington baseball team collected 14 hits but were unable to hold off host Stetson, falling 13-8 in the series finale on Sunday afternoon at Melching Field.
GW (0-3) had five different players record multiple hits led by senior Ollie Mittag who collected a game-high three with one RBI. Senior Matt Murakami, junior Kyle Gelling, sophomore Owen Beightol and freshman Xavier Parkmond each added two apiece.
The Colonials jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the top of the first inning started by a leadoff single from Gelling. He advanced to second on a passed ball and later scored following a walk to Mittag and a single by senior Stephen Oswald.
Murakami followed with a double down the left field line to make it 2-0 and Beightol followed with a two-run double of his own to push the lead to 4-0. Junior Ryan Hickey added a RBI single to push the lead to 5-0.
Stetson (3-0) plated two runs in both the first and second innings to cut the deficit to 5-4. The Hatters tied the game in the bottom of the fourth on an RBI single but the Colonials responded immediately with three runs in the top of the fifth.
Gelling delivered a two-run single with the bases loaded and Mittag added an RBI single later in the frame to put the Colonials back on top 8-5.
Stetson cut the deficit to one run by scoring two in the bottom of the fifth and then took the lead for good with a four-run sixth. The Hatters added two insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth for the 13-8 win.
Sophomore Colin Milon threw 1.2 hitless innings of relief in his first appearance of the season and freshman Xavier Parkmond finished 2-for-4 with one RBI in his first start as a collegiate catcher.
GW returns to action with three games against Army in Petersburg, Va., next weekend. The Colonials and Black Knights will play a doubleheader on Saturday and a single game on Sunday.
