BOCA RATON, FL - George Washington Baseball (0-2) struggled against No. 16 Florida Atlantic losing 29-1 in Boca Raton, FL. The Colonials only run came in the third inning when Mickey Shupin doubled and was batted in by his roomate Tom Shanley.
The Colonials dropped their second-straight against FAU who is riding a best-ever 9-0 start. Josh Wilkie started for GW but exited in the second inning after giving up seven runs. GW's relievers faired no better against the potent FAU line-up giving up 29 runs on the night.
With a 29-1 win over George Washington University, no. 16 Florida Atlantic University is off to its best start in school history with an 9-0 start. Jeff Fiorentino recorded a career-high six RBI and designated hitter Jarrod Lauth tied a school record with five runs scored in the second-game of the three-game series against the Colonials.
FAU scored seven runs in the second and fifth innings and eight runs in the eighth inning as the teams scored the most runs since 2002 when Florida Atlantic scored 31 against Hartford.
Matt O'Brien (Royal Palm Beach, FL) picked up his third win of the season after he threw five innings, struck out one and allowed one run on four hits. Jason Costello, Brandon Kloess, Mark Culp and Mike McBryde all worked one inning out of the pen for FAU and only allowed one hit as GW was held to one run on five hits.
