GW Baseball Drops Doubleheader to USC Upstate on Saturday
Colonials and Spartans To Play Game Three on Sunday
Feb. 23, 2013
SPARTANBURG, S.C. - The George Washington baseball team returned to action for the first time in a week on Saturday, but dropped a doubleheader by scores of 5-0 and 3-1 against USC Upstate at Harley Field.
Junior Aaron Weisberg got the start in game one of the doubleheader, surrendering just two hits through the first three innings before an error allowed two unearned runs to cross the plate in the top of the fourth, giving USC Upstate a 2-0 lead.
The Spartans added three more runs in the fifth to chase Weisberg from the game. He surrendered three earned runs in five innings with two strikeouts.
The Colonials got strong bullpen relief from the trio of freshman Max Kaplow, junior Craig Lejeune and senior Brian Derner, as each pitched a scoreless inning to keep the Spartans off the scoreboard. However, the Colonials bats fell silent the rest of the way, resulting in a 5-0 victory for USC Upstate.
GW (0-4) struck first in the nightcap, plating a run in the top of the second on a RBI single by junior Brookes Townsend to take a 1-0 lead. However, the Spartans retaliated in the bottom half on a RBI double.
The Spartans scored two more runs in the fourth on a RBI triple and a run-scoring single to take a 3-1 lead, an advantage they would maintain the rest of the way.
GW and USC Upstate will play game three tomorrow afternoon. First pitch from Harley Park is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
