Colonials Drop 4-2 Decision to Tar Heels
Junior Joe Richardson throws six shutout innings in George Washington debut
Feb. 20, 2010
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington University baseball team once again led late Saturday against North Carolina, but four seventh innings runs by the Tar Heels led them in a 4-2 victory. The Colonials enjoyed a stellar debut by junior Joe Richardson, but it wasn't enough in the second straight close loss. Richardson threw six shutout innings, allowing only three hits in the process.
The Tar Heels sent junior Patrick Johnson the mound and he went seven innings, allowing one earned run and struck out seven.
The Colonials got on the board first for the second straight day when senior Chris Holland singled for his first of two hits. Holland was able to come all the way around the score on an RBI double by junior Brendon Kelliher to give the Colonials an early 1-0 lead.
This lead lasted all the way until the seventh inning where the Tar Heels scored four runs keyed by a two-run single by Mike Cavasinni. North Carolina hit around in the frame, which was their only scoring inning of the game.
George Washington was led by Holland, who scored both Colonials runs and added two hits of his own. Redshirt senior Chris Luick also reached base three times, all by walk in his second game in a Colonial uniform. Kelliher and sophomore Stephen Oswald picked up the RBIs for George Washington in the contest.
The two teams will finish the series tomorrow when senior Ryan Lapointe will go against North Carolina right-hander Colin Bates. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00 p.m at Boshamer Stadium.
