Freshman Brian Frazier Goes the Distance in GW's 6-3 Win at ODU
Roberson Drives in Three with a homer and 2-Run Single
Feb. 22, 2005
NORFOLK, VA - In his first-ever collegiate start, George Washington (3-2) freshman RHP Brian Frazier (Allentown, PA / Emmaus) (1-0) struck out seven and did not allow an earned run while going the distance in the Colonials 6-3 victory over Old Dominion University (5-4) Tuesday afternoon at the Bud Metheny Complex.
GW first baseman Ryan Roberson (Silver Spring, MD / James H. Blake) homered (1) and drove in three and second baseman Tom Shanley (Stanfordville, NY / Pine Plains) went 4-for-4 with an RBI in the win.
Roberson's solo home run in the second inning and Shanley's RBI single in the top of third put the Colonials ahead 2-0.
But two GW errors in the bottom of the third inning led to three unearned Monarch runs.
With runners on first and third and nobody out, the Colonials conceded a run to turn a double play. ODU left fielder Evan Chipman followed with a two-run double to put the Monarchs ahead 3-2.
GW took back the lead for good in the fifth inning after right fielder Brad Rosenblat (New Orleans, LA / Newman / Tulane) drove in a run with a bases loaded sacrifice fly and Roberson followed with a two-run single, giving the Colonials a 5-3 advantage. They would add an insurance run in the ninth.
Needham Jones (0-2) started for the Monarchs and took the loss as he allowed eight hits and four earned runs in five innings. Hunter Hall threw the final four innings for ODU and was touched for just a run and three hits.
GW looks to make it two in a row Wednesday when they travel to Harrisonburg, VA to face James Madison University.
It'll be the battle of the southpaws as the Colonials will send LHP Avi Rasowsky (0-0, 4.91 ERA) to the hill and the Dukes will counter with LHP David Rich in JMU's season opener. Game time is 3:00 pm.
