Pitching Ace Greg Conden Ties GW Record With 30th Win, 3-2
Colonials' Coach Tom Walter Wins 200th Game Versus Sacred Heart
Feb. 22, 2003
NEWPORT NEWS, VA -- George Washington's ace pitcher Greg Conden won his 30th career game today tying a 32-year old GW record for career victories. With the Colonials 3-2 seven-inning win over Sacred Heart, seventh-year coach Tom Walter recorded his 200th victory. The game was played in Newport News, VA at Christopher Newport's Captain's Field due to inclement weather in Washington, DC.
Greg Conden who has now started a GW record 49 games, led the Colonials to a 3-2 win with the complete game victory. Conden improves to 2-0 for the year while recording his 30th victory of his four-year Colonials career. Conden struck out seven over seven innings of work. He gave up two runs on six hits and now has an ERA of 2.25 this year.
Sacred Heart struck first in the first on a sacrifice fly by Schilkowski scoring Marotta from third. GW answered in the bottom of the second scoring two with two outs. Ryan Roberson who is hitting .389 with seven hits singled down the right field line and advanced to second on stolen base. Tony Dokoupil smacked his first hit of the season driving in Roberson from second to tie things up. Dokoupil then scored when Tom Shanley singled up the middle to drive him in. Shanley who was the A-10 Rookie of the Week last week now leads the Colonials with a .438 batting average.
Sacred Heart tied it up at two in the top of the third when Santacroce singled to the right side of the infield and then stole second. He was knocked in when Marotta singled up the middle to knot it up at two.
GW's Chris Barry scored the winning run for the second time this season in the bottom of the third inning courtesy of Jeff Fertitta's second RBI of the year. Barry walked to lead off the inning and then stole second for the second time in the game. Barry who has been perfect on the base path with five steals is now ninth on the all-time list with 41 for his career.
GW improves to 3-1 while Sacred Heart drops their first game of the year. The Colonials are scheduled to play JMU at home on Tuesday subject to the weather.
