Baseball Drops Series Finale Against Tar Heels 6-3
Redshirt senior Chris Luick goes 2-4 to finish strong weekend
Feb. 21, 2010
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington University baseball team played their third straight close game with North Carolina on Sunday afternoon, but was once again unable to get in the win column in the 6-3 defeat. Redshirt senior Chris Luick went 2-4 with an RBI and a run scored and senior Ryan Lapointe started and went five innings after pitching out of the bullpen on Friday.
The Tar Heels sent redshirt junior Colin Bates the mound and he went seven innings, allowing three earned runs and struck out five.
For the first time in the series the Tar Heels got on the board first with two runs in the first and third innings to give them a 4-0 lead. The first inning runs were scored on a sacrifice fly by Michael Levi and an RBI groundout by Jesse Wierzbicki. The third inning runs were scored on a two-run triple by Brian Goodwin to pad the Tar Heel lead.
The Colonials responded with three fifth inning runs to close the lead to 4-3 after four and a half innings. RBI doubles by senior Chris Holland and Luick before Tyler McCarthy drove in the third run on a single to left center.
This was the closest George Washington would get in the contest as North Carolina added single runs in the sixth and seventh inning in the 6-3 victory. Sophomore Stephen Oswald made his first appearance on the mound in a Colonial uniform and threw two shutout innings, allowing just one hit.
The Colonials will continue playing ACC competition as their season resumes on Tuesday afternoon against the Virginia Cavaliers. The Cavaliers enjoyed their most successful season in school history in 2009 when they qualified for the College World Series. First pitch is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. and the starting pitchers are to be announced.
